I greet you fondly, hoping everything is running well in your life. This is Wendy Sucely, and I want to share my last news with you. My family and I attend the Catholic Church on Mondays and Wednesdays. My father, Marcos Rodriguez, is 47 years old. He still makes a living in the United States to support our family. He often keeps in touch with us. He works by driving a truck. My mother, Julia Mechen, is 45 years old. She is a housewife and weaves typical clothes like blouses and belts to help with her income at home. By God’s grace, we are all in good health. I want to use this opportunity to let you know that LW is a great blessing for my family and me because of all the material and spiritual support that we receive. We raise hens and pigs and grow corn for our consumption.
As for school, let me tell you that I am in fifth grade. I prefer to receive face-to-face classes instead of online because I enjoy learning at school. My father does his best for me and thankfully, he has been able to support my school supplies. Although, our greatest needs are groceries. I would love to become a dentist and speak English when I am older. Christmas is my favorite holiday because I like drinking hot fruit punch. I had my eleventh birthday in February. What I love the most is decorating my home and eating cake to celebrate a new year of life. There are many juices, but my favorite is pineapple juice. Before ending this letter, I want you to know that a member of the LW staff collects all this information for you. I hope you find it engaging. See you later!
Many kisses and hugs,
Wendy Sucely Rodriguez Mechen
