My Story

Hello dearest sponsor!  It is a pleasure to say hello to you hoping that you and your family are well.  I want to tell you that I live with my mother and my siblings in my grandmother’s house.  Her name is Rosa, but I call her “mama”.  We are a big family, but we are very united.  My mother cleans an office, and my grandmother goes out to sell atoll (traditional warm beverage) three times a week.  They strive a lot in order to provide for us.  Thanks to God, I am in good health, but when I am sick, I attend the clinic at the feeding program.  In school this year (2019), I learned the vowels and how to make lots of crafts with paper.  Because of a lack of resources, we almost never go out to other places.  We only go to the park to have fun playing.  We want to go and see the port but we have not been able to yet.  I do not know what I want to be when I grow up, but I like to go to school.  I like to play soccer and toy cars with my friends. 

We go to a little Bible school called “The Little Lambs” and we are following the steps of Jesus.  I like it that they teach us the Word of God here in the feeding program and that we pray for our food.  I ask for your prayers for my big family, for my grandmother and for my mother to always have work so that she can provide for us.  Thank you for having such a big heart.  Your help is such a blessing for my family and me.  I say goodbye to you asking God to bless you greatly, and I send you a big hug. 

Blessings and much love,

Elmer Adrian Toledo
