My Story

Hello! I would like first to thank you for taking the time to read my update. I want to tell you that it takes me forty minutes to arrive to the feeding program on foot. I am Silvia Eliza. I am 12 years old and I had my birthday in April. I take classes in my village and I am a fifth-grade student. My school is about forty minutes away from my home. I love Reading but Mathematics is a little difficult for me. I like to help my mother at home.

The people who live in the house are my parents, siblings and me. My father´s job consists of farming the land. Furthermore he goes to cut sugar cane on the coast to cover our family needs. My mother´s duties are taking care of us and doing the housework. My family and I are not attending any church for now. 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!

A-A-C NOTE: After the first COVID-19 case was confirmed in our country (March 13, 2020), our President ordered the closure of all the schools in order to prevent children becoming affected by this virus. We do not know when the schools will open again. However, most of the schools are assigning homework to their students to cover the content for the current school year. As a team, we are praying that God takes control of this situation soon so that we may continue on with our lives.
