Hello! I send you many greetings hoping you are doing well together with your loved ones. I am very happy to have the opportunity to tell you about my life through this letter. I live with my parents and brother. We are a happy and united family. My father works as a construction helper while my mother works hard at home. I attend school together with my brother. We are happy because we are all in good health. I did not attend school last year, so this is my first year. I am in first grade and I always do my homework. I like learning new things. I cannot read and write yet, but I am sure I will learn to do it very well soon. I do not work out of home, but I help to draw our water from a well.
We celebrated Christmas and we had “tamales and ponche” (typical dish and hot fruit punch) that day. My brother and I lit some fireworks, and it was a happy day for us. My dream is to become a doctor when I am older. My favorite sport is football and I like playing with my spinning tops. My family and I attend Prince of Peace Church and I love singing praises. We always pray to God when we are facing difficult times. I would like to ask you to keep us in your prayers. I thank you for the support you are giving to Living Water. I pray God blesses you always. I send you many hugs with affection and love. I say goodbye to you for now. I hope to hear from you soon.
With much love
