Hello dearest sponsor! How are you? Today, my family and I are in good health, and I hope that you are as well. My father is still in the United States working on a poultry farm. He sometimes calls us to see how we are doing. My mother is a housewife, and she also raises domestic animals to sell and cover our expenses. My two single brothers work on a farm to earn money to help with the expenses. Two other brothers are married. I am the only one who is still going to school. I am in the 4th grade, and thanks to God, it is going well. I spend many happy moments with my friends at school playing soccer. I do not work outside of our home, but sometimes, I help my brothers when they go to work. My family has spent many happy moments together at Christmas, but I especially like it when we celebrate my birthday. They buy me a cake and we have a lot of fun together. My family and I go to a church called “Prince of Peace”, and the most interesting part to me is listening to the Word of God.
After school, I do my homework and then I either play or just simply rest. Later on, I want to have a job and also my own business in order to get ahead in life. I want you to know that I am very happy and that you have been a great blessing in my life. I want to ask you to help me pray for my family and especially for my father. I do not remember him because I was very small when he left to go to the United States, and I do not have any photos of him. I miss him a lot. I will pray for you with much love hoping that I will meet you some day. Thank you for all your support.
Blessings and much love,
Kevin Abimael Chen Riz
