IMPORTANT INFORMATION AUGUST 28, 2020
Roselia's mother phoned to inform us that Roselia is pregnant and she has 05 months. Mom did not know nothing about it because Roselia never told her. One day before she gave us the information she took Roselia to a public health center because she saw Roselia's abdomen was growing. Her surprise was when doctor told her that Roselia is pregnant. We reported to our LW doctor about Roselia and now she is receiving prenantal pills. Unfortunately, Roselia's baby's father did not want to be responsible of them. Roselia's parents are supportind her and her baby.
I would like first of all to thank you for taking the time to read my update. I tell you that I walk for one minute to arrive to the feeding program. I am Roselia Aracely but everybody affectionately calls me Rosi. I am 13 years old and I had my birthday in March. I take classes in a school called Los Patojos and I am a seventh-grade student. My school is about one hour by bus from my home. I love Mathematics but Language is a little difficult for me.
The people who live in the house are my parents, siblings and me. My mother’s duties are taking care of us and doing the housework, and my father’s job consists of driving a bici-taxi in the town. My family goes to church on Sunday, and it is called Assembly of God. 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!
Roselia Aracely Matias Alquijay
AAC NOTE: After the first COVID-19 case was confirmed in our country (March 13, 2020), our President ordered the closure of all the schools in order to prevent children becoming affected by this virus. We do not know when the schools will open again. However, most of the schools are assigning homework to their students to cover the content for the current school year. As a team, we are praying that God takes control of this situation soon so that we may continue on with our lives.
