Hello! I am glad to greet you. I hope you are in good health together with your loved ones. I want to share with you a little about my family and me. I live with my mother and my siblings. My mother works selling shoes and clothes to cover the home expenses. Sadly, my father abandoned us some time ago. My siblings and I attend school. I am in 4th grade at school and thank God, I am doing well in my studies. The happiest time for me is when we go to visit my relatives. The saddest moment for me is when my cousin, who I consider my sister, gets sick. I want to share with you that my cousin has been living with my family since she was 22 days old because her biological mother could not take care of her. She was hospitalized in the intensive care unit for four times when she was 1 ½ years old. Now, she has to use a feeding tube and she is only three years old.
Sometimes, we have family reunions. I have gone to visit Antigua. I like to share time with my siblings. We celebrated Christmas and we prepared chicken and ¨ponche¨ (hot fruit drink); I also lit firecrackers. My desire is to be an architect and a soccer player. My desire is to continue with my studies and help many needy people. In my free time, I like to play soccer. At the moment, I do not attend a church. I like to attend the feeding program because I receive delicious food and Bible classes. When we have some problem, we pray to solve it. I ask for your prayers for my family. I say goodbye to you for now with much love. I send you many hugs and kisses. May God bless you!
In Jesus name,
Angel Emmanuel Serrano Ajxup
