Hello dearest Padrinos! I send you many greetings and a huge hug hoping you are doing well and receiving the Lord’s blessings together with your loved ones. I am very excited to write you this letter and tell you news about my family and me. I live with my mother, my brother and my stepfather. Unfortunately, I did not meet my father in person. My stepfather’s name is Pedro Ajqui, he works as a farmer and he supports us. My mother works hard at home. Thank God my family and I are doing well.
I no longer study because of lack of economic resources. Now, I work as a farmer and day laborer and I also go to pick coffee beans at the coast in order to help with the income and cover my needs. After work, I stay at home taking a rest or spending time with my friends. I want to tell you, my teacher helped me write this letter because it is difficult for me to do it by myself. My family and I attend Prince of Peace Church and I like singing praises. I want to thank you for all your support, love and generosity towards me through Living Water. I love you so much and I would like to hear from you soon. I pray God multiplies back to you all you have done for me. May God pour out many blessings upon you!
With much love
Your sponsored child
