My Story

PENDING PHOTO 2020

I will start by giving you thanks for taking the time to read my update. I walk for twenty minutes to arrive to the feeding program. I am Elmer Adrian. I am 6 years old and I will have my birthday in September. I take classes in my village and I am a kindergarten student. My school is about one hour away from my home. I love Art. Since my school is closed for Covid-19, I received a book to work at home which I will turn in when classes begin again. My hobbies are playing toy cars and soccer.

The people who live in the house are my mother, grandparents, uncles, cousins, siblings and me. My father passed away 9 years ago, so my mother is the only one that covers our needs. She works as a maid.  Fortunately, she is working normally despite the pandemic situation. We are not members of the any Church, but we are grateful to God because we all are in good health. In spite of the hard health situation that we are currently facing in our country, our Lord has been taking care of us. We trust in our Lord's mercy and that He will put His healing hands over all people who are suffering during this pandemic. I would like to receive a letter from you and have the opportunity to share our life experiences with each other.

Thinking of you!

AAC NOTE: After the first COVID-19 case was confirmed in our country (March 13, 2020), our President ordered the closure of all the schools in order to prevent children becoming affected by this virus. We do not know when the schools will open again.  However, most of the schools are assigning homework to their students to cover the content for the current school year. As a team, we are praying that God takes control of this situation soon so that we may continue on with our lives.
