Hello! I greet you affectionately through this letter. I am so happy to share with you about my family and me. I live with my parents and two brothers. I have three brothers, but one of them is not living with us. My mother works doing the cleaning in a school. Thank God we all are healthy. My siblings are attending school. My older brother has a different father and he went to live with him. I attend first grade this year and thank goodness I am not repeating my grade. For now I do not work but I help my mother to clean our home. One of my saddest moments was when my parents had some serious problems and they decided to separate and those were sad days for me. But fortunately they talked and resolved their differences and got back together and it made me so happy.
We have gatherings at home for our birthday. We eat cake, “tostadas” (typical Guatemalan homemade snacks) and bread with chicken. I like to go out to the park with my mother and I have a lot of fun. My goal is to study hard in order to have a better future. I enjoy playing football with my siblings and friends. My family and I attend church occasionally. When we have problems, we talk in order to resolve them and we pray to our Lord asking for His help. I want to ask for your prayers for the unity of my family and that our Lord takes care of us. I pray God blesses and takes care of you. I say good-bye to you for now but I send you a huge hug and kisses. Many blessings!
In Jesus name
Jose Isai Bautista Rustrian
