I will start by giving you thanks for taking the time to read my update. I walk for fifteen minutes to arrive to the feeding program. I am Balaam Cornelio Alan but everybody affectionately calls me Alan. I am 15 years old and I will have my birthday in December. I did not continue with my studies. I only completed sixth grade last year. I help to farm the land. In my free time, I like to listen to music.
The people who live in the house are my grandparents, cousins and me. Unfortunately, my biological father abandoned us many years ago and does not help us economically. My mother is working as a domestic employee in Guatemala City. She works far away from our house so she visits me every month and supports me with my expenses. My grandmother takes care of me while my mother is working. We are members of the Full Gospel Church. I am grateful to God because we all are in good health. In spite of the hard health situation that we are currently facing in our country, our Lord has been taking care of us. We trust in our Lord's mercy and that He will put His healing hands over all people who are suffering during this pandemic. I would like to receive a letter from you and have the opportunity to share our life experiences with each other.
Thinking of you!
Balaam Cornelio Alan Garcia De La Cruz
