Hello! How are you? I hope you are receiving many blessings from God. I send you a cordial greeting. I am glad to share with you a little about my family and me. I live with my parents and my siblings. My mother´s name is Florencia and she does the household chores at home. She takes care of us and she weaves typical clothes. She grows coriander, onions and herbs for selling in the market. The market is located about 1 ½ hours from our house. She also raises some hens and pigs for selling when necessary. I have five sisters and two brothers. My father has a small grocery store.
Thank God, we all are in good health. I am not attending school yet because I am too young. The happiest time for me is Christmas because I can see the fireworkes and my mother prepares ¨tamales¨ (typical dish), and we wait until midnight. My desire is to attend school and learn many things. I want to learn the numbers, and how to read and write. I play in the tree swing with my siblings. My family and I attend Prince of Peace Church. Thank you for supporting me through the feeding program. Take care of yourself. I say goodbye to you for now with much love.
Hugs and Kisses,
Pablo Mendez Ruiz
