I greet you in the name of Jesus and I hope you have many successes in your daily life. In this opportunity, I want to share some news about my family and me through this letter. First of all, my family and I are grateful to Living Water because thanks to your support I receive medical and dental attention in the clinics. In addition, I have a meal and spiritual support at the Feeding Program. I want to let you know that we continue attending the Christian Life Church. Thank you to the LW evangelism team for their encouraging words to us during the visit, so we are sure of our salvation in Christ. My mother`s name is Elena Chivalan Hernandez. She is 32 years old. Nowadays, she does chores at home. In addition, she raises hens and sheep to sell and get some income. My father´s name is Rodolfo Grave Gutierrez. He is 32 years old. At the moment, he continues working as a farmer and day laborer. Moreover, he travels to the coast to pick coffee beans during harvest time. We grow corn for our family´s consumption. As a humble family, our current needs are groceries, corn, and clothes. Thank God, my family and I are doing fine.
My name is Griselda Marina Grave Chivalan and I am 13 years old. This year, I am in 6th grade at school. I receive face-to-face classes every day and I am learning a lot with this study method. Thank God, my father is making an effort to support my sisters and me at school in spite of the school fees being so expensive and that he does not have a stable job. My dream is to become a maid. My native language is the Quiche Mayan dialect, so I would like to learn Spanish and improve my communication with others. Christmas is my favorite celebration of the year because I have received a gift through the Feeding Center from LW. I like to drink coffee. I do not celebrate my birthday due to a lack of money. Among sports, I like soccer. Thank you for the Christmas gift that I received through LW Adopt-A-Child in December. I hope you enjoy reading my letter. May God bless you greatly!
Kisses and hugs,
Griselda Marina Grave Chivalan
