Hello! How are you? I send you warm greetings hoping you are doing well together with your loved ones. Thank God, my family and I are in good health. My father works as a day laborer. He no longer goes to work at the coast because he is elderly and the work is very hard there. My siblings Jaime, Isaias, Caty, Carmelina and Isabela had the opportunity to travel to the United States and now they bless my parents financially. My mother is a housewife and she raises domestic animals for selling when we need money. I want to thank you for the support you are giving to Living Water because I can enjoy delicious dishes there. My favorite one is fried chicken with rice and ketchup. My family attends the Catholic Church and I enjoy my time there because I sing praises to our Lord.
I love my town fair because we honor the Holy Spirit and all of the students take part in a parade that is carried out on Tuesday and Friday. The celebration lasts one week and there are many mechanical games and food. My mother gives me some money to buy what I want. I am in first grade this year and I have made friends. Their names are Juliana and Vilma. I also like Christmas time because my mother prepares “tamales” and we receive a gift at the feeding program. I used to attend Cuatro Caminos feeding program but Chuchuca program is closer to my house. I thank you for all the support you are giving to Guatemala children. I say goodbye to you for now. May God bless you!
With much love
