Hello dearest sponsor! I am very happy to say hello to you through this letter hoping that you and your family are doing well. I want to tell you that I live with my mother and my siblings. My mother works each day selling gelatins and other sweets in order to earn money to sustain our family and give us our necessities. Since we do not have our father with us, it has been a difficult situation for us. Thankfully, God has always provided us with our needs and good health. At school, they are teaching me to read and to recognize words. I like to color and to draw things such as cats, bears and houses. During recess, I play tag, ball and hide-and-seek with my friends. We have a lot of fun together.
My favorite color is purple. When I grow up, I would like to be a doctor so that I can help others. My mother takes me to church, but I do not remember the name of it. Each time I come to the feeding program, they teach us about the Bible before they give us our lunch. I would like to ask you to pray for my family because my father’s death has been hard for us to overcome. Also, please pray that we will always have food. Thank you for all that you have done for me. I am still small but I wish you the best in life.
Blessings and much love,
Naydelin Zulema Garcia Barreno
