My Story

Dear Sponsor,

I am very happy to update my personal information. I am Maylin Yanira Lopez Cifuentes, and I am 12 years old. I am in fifth grade this year and I am studying with study guides. My grandmother accompanies me to school to leave my homework and receive my study guides every fifteen days. It has been a little difficult for my mother to support me with my studies because she is a single parent and spends money on internet plans. I help with the household chores and cook with my brother’s help while my mother is at work. My mother is working as a cook in a restaurant that it is located far from our town. She comes home only on weekends because the bus fares are a little expensive; my grandmother is the one who looks after us.

We were affected economically at the middle of the last year because my mother was suspended from her work; we could cover our needs with some savings that my mother had and the groceries that we received from the feeding program and school. God was faithful with us all this time and He has always provided us the necessities to live. We received grocery bags from Living Water and we could eat something delicious for those days; also, we could save some money. I bless this Ministry for all the support I have received. My aunt, who lives with us, got Covid-19 at the middle of the last year. She works as a nurse and she was hospitalized until she recovered from that virus. She was the only one who got it, but we had to be in quarantine at home too.

Thank God, we are all in good health now. My grandmother and I attend New Jerusalem Church but my mother does not due to her job. Lastly, I want to tell you that my mother helped me to give this information by phone to a LW Evangelism teacher. The staff did not meet us personally because they are avoiding physical contact as much as possible since they want to protect us from the current virus. I thank you for taking the time to read my letter. 

With much love

Maylin Yanira Lopez Cifuentes
