Hello dearest sponsor! It is a pleasure to 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 and my brother. My mother works cleaning and washing clothes for other people. My father works as a mason, but he does not live with us or support us with anything. At home, I help my mother to pick up the shoes and clothes. I am still not going to school, but I will next year. Thanks to God, I am in good health, but when I am sick, I go to the clinic at the feeding program. We do not go out to places because of a lack of money. I like to play with my friends in my neighborhood. We play dolls, draw and color. When I grow up, I want to be a gymnast.
We go to a Catholic church called “Santa Cura de Arce” and I like the singing. When we go to the feeding program, they teach us the Word of God and we pray for our food. When we have difficult moments in my family, we talk with each other and we pray for God to help us. I do not have anything more to tell you, so I say goodbye giving thanks to God for your lives. I send you a big hug. May God bless you greatly.
Blessings and much love,
Esmeralda Isabel Gonzalez Gomez
