My Story

Dear Sponsor,

Hello! How are you? I send warm greetings and huge hugs, and I hope you are doing well together with your loved ones. Thank God, my whole family and I are in good health. I tell you that my father returned from the United States about two year ago and now he is with us. He works as a farmer, but he makes trips with his pickup on Thursday and Sunday from our village to Zacualpa town. My mother works hard at home and weaves typical clothes for selling. We have a small grocery store and we raise some domestic animals for selling when we need money. I had to repeat my third grade this year because I did not learn some lessons last year and I did not get good grades in my exams. I did my best to pass it this time. My favorite subject is mathematics.

I like playing soccer with my friends. I want to study hard and become a professional person in the future. My favorite dish at the feeding program is fried chicken with French fries; I love eating it. We feel very happy when it is someone’s birthday because we prepare a special lunch or dinner and eat cake.  We also thank God for another year of life. We do not attend church yet because my father does not want to go. I thank you for all the support you are giving to Living Water; it is a great blessing for me. I pray God makes all your plans come true. I say goodbye to you for now hoping to have good news from you soon.

With much love

Bacilio Gomez
