Hello! How is your day? I send you warm greetings through this letter. It is a great pleasure for me to write about my life. I hope you are doing well together with your loved ones. I live with my parents and brothers. My father’s name is Carlos and he works as a farmer; he grows corn during the rainy season. He also goes to cut sugar cane at the coast from November to April. When he is there, he calls us almost every day and sends us money every month. My mother’s name is Irma and she works as a weaver. We have some chicks and one cow at home; maybe my parents will sell the cow. I have three brothers and their names are Edy, Leodan and Nery who is the youngest one. Thank God, my whole family is in good health.
I was registered at school for the first time this year. I felt a little scared the first day, but now, I feel happy to study. I attended first grade and I learned some letters and numbers. I am now on vacation. I really enjoy when it is my church’s anniversary because other church’s members come to our special service and we all receive a delicious lunch. My dream is to become a teacher and help many children to write and read. My cousins, brothers and I like playing toy cars and soccer. My family attends Prince of Peace Church and I like hearing the praises. I thank you for all the support you are giving to Living Water. I pray God blesses you in a big way. I say goodbye to you for now.
With much love
