Hello! How are you? I send you warm greetings and I wish the best for your family and you. I tell you that I live with my parents and I have one brother and two sisters. My father works as a farmer and as a construction helper while my mother works hard at home. Thank God, we are all in good health. I attended my seventh grade this year and I did my best to get good grades. We took some classes this year that helped us to discover what we want to do in the future. I am now on vacation, so I am helping to do the cleaning, look after my little siblings and tend the small grocery store that we have at home. I like watching TV and playing with my siblings in my free time.
My family and I spend good moments together, especially when we go out to some place or share a delicious dish. My dream is to become a teacher. We attend a Methodist church and my father is one of the church’s elders. I love the praises because they are beautiful. We pray and ask for God’s help when we are passing through difficult situations. I want to ask you to pray for my family and my studies. It was a great pleasure for me to greet you through this letter. I thank you for all the support you have given me through the feeding program and clinics. I pray God blesses you in a big way. I say goodbye to you for now hoping to have news from you soon.
With much love
Marta Alicia Tol Chan
