Hello Sponsors! How are you? I hope you are in good health and together with your loved ones. I send you many greetings. I am very excited to write this letter and tell you news about my family and me. I live with my mother and my siblings. Unfortunately, my father abandoned us. He does not communicate with us or support us. My mother works hard at home, raises domestic animals, and does whatever odd jobs she can find. I have an aunt who lives and works in the United States, and fortunately, she helps us with some money. I love my mother and my aunt because they make an effort to cover the family´s living expenses. Thanks to God my family and I are in good health.
This year, I am in fourth grade. My favorite subjects in school are Calligraphy, Mathematics, Communication and Language. I do not work. I only help my mother with the errands. My dream is to finish my primary school to find a good stable job and help my family financially. My favorite sport is football. I like playing toy cars and bowling. I enjoy good moments with my family for Holy Week because we eat bread with honey, and also for Christmas because we celebrate it. We prepare “tamales” (a typical meal made with corn dough, meat and tomato sauce) we burn firecrackers, we share time together and we have a lot of fun.
My family and I attend Prince of Peace Church. One of the saddest moments for my family and for me was when my father abandoned us. Fortunately, God has never left us. He has always given us the courage and strength to go ahead. Please, I ask for your prayers that God will keep my family and me safe and in good health. I will pray for you. I principally thank God because He has put in your heart the desire to sponsor me and help me through the LW. I also want to thank you for your Christmas gift that I received in the Feeding Program; it has been a great blessing for me and my family. 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!
Many kisses and huge hugs for you
Your sponsored child
