Hello! Good afternoon! I send you a cordial greeting. I hope you are in good health together with your loved ones. I am glad to greet you and share with you a little about myself. My mother does the household chores and she grows coriander and broccoli. She also raises domestic animals for selling. My father works as a farmer and as a day laborer. Both of my parents work picking coffee beans at the coast from January to April. I live with my brother Mariano and my sister in law Petronila while my parents are working far away. They take care of me. I have three brothers and three sisters. Only my brother Mariano is married.
Thank God, my family and I are in good health. I do not attend school. I only attended 1st grade but I did not pass it and did not want to continue. I like Christmas time and Holy Week because we have a family reunion and we spend good time together. My desire is to be a good farmer. I like to play soccer, toy cars, tag and hide and seek with my siblings. My family and I attend Church, and I learn about God´s Word and I like to sing praises. Thank you for supporting me through the feeding program. May God bless you!
With much love and many blessings,
Francisco Lopez Barrera
