Hello! How are you? I hope you are doing well together with your loved ones. Thank God, my family and I are fine. I want to start my letter by asking you to pray for my father because he drinks too much alcohol and he hardly works. I trust God can help him to quit this vice. My mother works as a weaver and raises domestic animals for selling. There are five children in the family. My two oldest brothers and I work to help our mother with the home income. We work as day laborers or as construction helpers. I always do my best to attend the feeding program. I passed my sixth grade in 2016 but I could not continue studying due to our low resources.
I love playing soccer. My dream is to have my own grocery store and give my mother a better lifestyle. My family attends the Catholic Church, but I only sometimes attend because I have to work. We celebrate Christmas at home and we usually prepare “tamales and ponche” for the dinner. We also light some firecrackers. I would like to ask you to pray for my family and me so that God always gives us the necessities to live and He blesses everything we do. I thank you for blessing Living Water and I am sure the Lord will reward you for it. I say goodbye to you for now.
With much love
Luis Antonio Us Garcia
