My Story

Hello! It is a pleasure to greet you through this letter and I hope you are doing very well. I want to tell you that I am living with my mother and siblings. Thank God they are healthy. But I want to ask for your prayers for one cousin who has lived with us since she was a baby. I consider her as my sister. She is only 3 years old and is having some health problems.  She had been at the hospital and unfortunately needs to use a tube to feed because her throat is damaged. Moreover she needs special milk but my mother is not able to buy it. My mother works selling second hand clothes in a market in order to cover our home expenses. My siblings and I are attending school. I attend fourth grade and I am not repeating my grade.

I want to continue with my studies and then be able to help my family. My dreams are to become a good doctor and a soccer player. I enjoy playing football with my siblings and friends. The most important thing is to do my homework. At the moment I do not work. I have had good and bad moments with my family. We like to gather at home and eat a cake. I have visited Tecpan and Antigua Guatemala, and I had a lot of fun. I love to celebrate Christmas with my family.  We ate tamales and ponche de frutas (typical food and hot fruit punch) and lit some firecrackers. I am not attending church but I like to participate in the bible school in the feeding program. I pray to God when I have problems in my family. I want to ask for your prayers for my family and that our Lord takes care of us from any danger and provides us the necessities at home. I say good-bye to you for now but I send you kisses and hugs. Many blessings!

With much love

Cristian Emmanuel Serrano Ajxup
