My Story

Hello! My name is Jesus Boanerjes. I am 14 years old and I am attending 7th grade. I receive study guides by WhatsApp to study from home and I can ask for help from my teacher by the same way. I have to deliver my homework to my teacher at school every week. For me, it is very difficult to comprehend the topics, so I do not do my homework. My mother and sister try to help me, but I do not understand them. My biological father passed away several years ago. My stepfather works in the maintenance area for the municipality. My mother is a housewife.

Let me tell you that this covid-19 pandemic has affected my family in our economy, and we had to reduce the expenses. And in my studies, my parents had to spend money to get the internet. In addition, the food products got so expensive. My parents have given a room of our home for rent to get some money and help themselves their economy. We have seen God´s faithfulness in our family because we have never lacked food at home. We received support from my school. As a family, we are so grateful to Living Water / Adopt A Child who has been supporting us with grocery bags. The groceries came to be so useful to us because they completed our needs at home. My family and I pray to God so that He blesses and rewards everyone who contributes so that children can get this help. Thank God, the covid-19 has not affected us so far. Nevertheless, my mother suffers from diabetes. She is already taking medicines, but it is very difficult to get her medicines due to lack of resources. We attend Trees of Justice Church, and the services are 3 days per week. I want to let you know that an evangelism teacher of LW called my mother, Rosa Garcia by phone to get this updated information since the feeding program is still closed due to the pandemic. I say goodbye to you for now. Many blessings!

Hugs and much love,

Jesus Boanerjes Marroquin Garcia
