Hello! I am so happy to send you many greetings with much love. I want to share with you a little bit about my family and me. Thank God we are in good health. My mother is who supports me and she works in a tortilla shop in Guatemala City. She usually comes to visit us every three months. While she is away, I am under my grandparents care. They are pastors in a church and fortunately they are helping us with our expenses too. I have one sister and one brother who were attending school. This year I was in fifth grade at school and my favorite subject was mathematics. My dream is to become a teacher and contribute in my community. I liked to do my homework and read a book. At home I help my mother with the household chores and wash my clothes.
Unfortunately my father abandoned us some years ago. My family and I have the custom to celebrate Christmas with tamales and ponche de frutas (typical food and hot fruit punch). This is a good time to share with my whole family. I enjoyed playing basketball, tag and hide-and-seek with my friends at school. I attend King of the Centuries Church and I go to thank our Lord for His love to me and for my life. I sing praises at church. We always pray to God especially when we are passing through some problem. Also we fast. I want to ask for your prayers for my family, especially for my mother who works far from us and that our Lord takes care of us. I leave you for now. Many blessings!
With much love
