This is Escarlet Alejandra Ramon Cuchujay. I am so glad to say hello to you through this. I hope you are in good health. I am now eleven years old, and I am in fifth grade at school. This year I am studying through study guides. I am taking online classes through Zoom every two days. Reason why, I must have internet on the cellphone. I hand in my homework at school every week. I also use WhatsApp to ask for any doubt, or communicate to the teacher. I get up early to do schoolwork, so I have time to play. I have really missed listening to the Bible stories and sitting and having food in the feeding program. I used to like the time they gave me a refreshment. The program is located twenty minutes away from home by walking. I want you to know about my parents. My father is Mynor Rene. He works as a shoemaker in a workshop. It’s the way he earns a living. Mayra Alejandra is my mother. She works in a printing house. Thanks to their jobs, they provide for our household expenses. In our spare time, we go to the park, to the field and watch movies. We usually spend time and enjoy being together this way.
My family and I went to Jutiapa state and visited with my sister on Christmas. We stayed at her home, and had a nice time, so this way, we celebrated this special day together! Currently, we are not attending to any church. Possibly, we will do it soon. We rent a house with two rooms and separate kitchen. It is made of cement block, concrete floor and terrace roof. It has running water and electricity. The house condition is good. The grocery bags we received from LW along the difficult times we went through, when there was not work because of the pandemic restrictions, was a great help and blessing for us. That’s why, I am so grateful! I ask you to please pray for us, for food and money to pay the rent is a greatest need at home. Thank you very much for your prayers! Thanks to God, my family and I are all doing well, for now. I hope you are too! Lastly, I tell you that we were visited at home by one member from the Evangelism team to get updated information about me, so my mother provided it to him, on my behalf. I say good bye to you for now.
Lots of blessings and love,
Escarlet Alejandra Ramon Cuchujay
