Hello! How are you? I hope you are in good health together with your loved ones. I hope you are receiving many blessings from God. I want to share with you a little about my family and me. Thank God, we are well. My father works as a mason and he has a cow. He grows corns and black beans for our food. My mother does the household chores at home and she takes care of us. She also raises domestic animals. I have three sisters and one brother; only my brother attends school. This year, I was in 4th grade at school and my favorite subject was communication and language. I had many friends and I liked to play with them. I liked to do my homework and read my books.
In my free time, I like to draw and to color. I help my mother with the chores at home. We celebrate Christmas and my mother prepares ¨tamales and ponche¨ (typical dish and hot fruit drink). We also light firecrackers and share good time together. In Holy Week, we buy bread with honey. I like to play soccer, tag and dolls with my sisters. I like to attend the feeding program because I receive delicious food and learn about God´s Word. My family and I attend Prince of Peace Church; I like to sing praises and pray. I ask for your prayers for my family. I say goodbye to you for now. May God bless you!
With much love,
Yolanda Gregoria Us Guarcas
