Before anything else I would like to express to you my gratitude for being my sponsors and blessing me through Living Water. I walk for five minutes to arrive to the feeding program. I am Mesi Gustavo. I am 12 years old and I had my birthday in February. I take classes in my village and I am a sixth-grade student. My school is about one hour and a half away from my home. I love Mathematics but Sciences and Social Studies are a little difficult for me. I like to play soccer.
The people who live in the house are my parents, siblings and me. My father´s job consists of selling fruits and snacks in the market and my mother does the same work. My family goes to Catholic Church on Sundays. 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 are praying for your family and for all the world. 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 if you want to ask me something else about my life, feel free to do it.
Thinking of you!
Mesi Gustavo Aguilon Velasquez
A-A-C 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.
