My Story

Hello! I hope you and your family are in good health. My name is Manuel Eduardo Gomez Lopez and I am eight years old. I am in the first grade at school again and I am receiving guides to do at home. I deliver and receive more homework every eight days. Last year, I passed my grade but I cannot read and write well so my father said that I have to repeat my grade and I have to do my best effort this year. My father continues working in San Sebastian Farm and he covers the home expenses. My mother does the household chores and she takes care of us. We were affected in our economy due to the current situation of the Covid-19 and the new modality of studies but thank God, my father did not lose his job.

We have received groceries from the Municipality and from the feeding program so we have seen God´s faithfulness through the good people. One of my father´s friends who is in the United States helped him with a remittance for us. It was a great blessing for us to receive the grocery bag from the feeding program because we received it when my parents did not have enough money to buy our food. We thank you for supporting us through Living Water. Fortunately, we have not been infected by covid-19 virus. My father has some spots on his skin and he already visited the health center but he has not seen any changes. My mother has some leg pain. I ask for your prayers for me because I do not have any appetite but I already visited the LW doctor. At the moment, we do not attend a church due to the pandemic. We only receive the mass on TV. I want to tell you that one of the AAC-Team called my family and my mother was the one who gave this information about me, by phone due to the pandemic. I send you many hugs.

In Jesus name,

Manuel Eduardo Gomez Lopez
