My Story

Hello dearest sponsor!  I send you a warm greeting hoping that you and your family are doing well.  I want to tell you that I live with my parents and my brother.  My father works as a blacksmith and my mother works as a waitress for special events when they call her.  When I was a baby, I had a problem with one of my kidneys and I have been under treatment for many years. I also have a learning disability.  I come to the clinic at the feeding program when I am sick, and I also attend the dental clinic.  They are a great help for me.  At home, I help my mother wash dishes and later, I do my homework.  By the grace of God, I have not repeated a grade and I am striving hard to do my best.  Sometimes we go to Irtra and I like all the games and rides they have.  I enjoy spending time there with my family.  I want to be a veterinarian when I grow up because I really like animals and I want to help them.  My family does not attend church, but here at the feeding program, they teach us about God and we pray for our food.  When we have problems or difficult situations, we solve them by talking with each other and asking God to help us.  I ask for your prayers for my parents’ jobs and for the health of my kidneys.  I say goodbye to you asking God to bless you greatly. 

Blessings and much love,

Jakelin Abigail Montenegro Torres
