Hello dearest sponsor! I joyfully 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, grandmother and sister. My mother works cleaning houses to provide for my family. I am in good health, but when I am sick, I go to the clinic at the feeding program. At home, I help my mother to clean, sweep and pick up shoes, and later, I do my homework. Thanks to God, I was doing well in school (2019) and I was not repeating my grade. My favorite subject was mathematics. We do not go out to other places because of a lack of resources, but I have been to Antigua. It is a very beautiful place here in Guatemala. When I grow up, I would like to be a doctor so that I can help other people. We go to Real Life Church and I like when we sing and pray.
Also, here at the feeding program, they teach us the Word of God and we pray for our food. My favorite food is Milanesa. When we have difficult moments in my family, we talk with each other and we pray for God to help us. I ask you to pray for my family and for my mother to always have work. I do not have anything more to tell you, so I say goodbye to you asking God to bless you and watch over you wherever you are. I send you a big hug.
Blessings and much love,
Andrea Jimena Alvarado Pana
