Hello! I am glad to write you this letter. I want to share with you a little about my family and me. I live in Quiche. I have a beautiful and small family. I have three siblings. My father is responsible, and he works as a brick layer’s helper. He works to cover our home expenses. My mother takes care of the house. One of my sisters has a baby. One of my siblings attends school and my other sibling has some health problems. He suffers from hearing and speech problems, but God has been faithful and he is receiving help through the feeding program. Thank God, the rest of my family is in good health.
I am doing well in my studies and I am in Kindergarten. When I grow up, I would like to be a singer. I like to sing with my friends and my teachers. I feel so happy to spend time at school. I like to visit my cousins who live in Guatemala City. I like Christmas because I can share time with my friends and my relatives. We burn firecrackers and my mother prepares ¨tamales and ponche¨ (typical dish and hot fruit drink). I like to play tag, soccer and hide and seek. I like to attend Church and when I grow up, I would like to be a guitarist. My desire is to be a house builder. I love to serve God and my family. I ask for your prayers for my life. Thank you for being a great blessing for me. I love you so much. I hope to meet you in person someday. May God bless you!
Hugs and Kisses,
Nery Jeremias Alfonzo Riz Garcia
