Hello! Let me begin by thanking you for taking the time to read my update. I want to tell you that I walk for two hours to arrive to the feeding program. I am Oscar Leonel. I am 13 years old and I had my birthday in March. Last year I finished my primary school and this year I did not continue with my studies because I do not like to study very much. For now I work as a farmer. I like to play football in my free time.
The people who live in the house are my parents, siblings, and me. My father´s job consists of farming the land. Also, he goes to pick coffee beans on the coast from October to December. My mother´s duties are taking care of us and doing the housework. Moreover she raises hens and sheep for selling. My family and I are members of King of the Centuries Church. 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.
God bless you!
