I am very happy to have the opportunity to tell you about my life through this letter. My name is Luis Fernando Chum Guaran, and I am now 7 years old. I am in first grade this year, and I am receiving classes in my teacher’s house once a week; the classes last one hour and a half, and on that day, we also deliver our homework. It has been a little difficult for my parents to support me with my school expenses because their incomes are low. My father is now working in the sugar cane plantations in another department called Escuintla. My mother is working hard at home and taking care of us.
We were economically affected by this pandemic, but we could overcome this situation thanks to my parents’ effort; they were collecting firewood to sell. God has been faithful with us all this time because He has provided us the necessities to live. We received grocery bags from Living Water and they were a great blessing for us. I thank you so much for your support, and I pray God blesses and takes care of you. Thank God, none of my family has gotten Covid-19, and we are all in good health. We are members of the Catholic Church and we attend the mass on Thursday and Sunday. Lastly, I want to tell you that one of my cousins helped me to give this information by phone to a LW Evangelism teacher. The staff did not meet us personally because they are avoiding physical contact as much as possible since they want to protect us from the current virus. I thank you for taking the time to read my letter.
Kisses and hugs
Luis Fernando Chom Guaran
