Hello! How are you? It is a great pleasure for me to greet you through this letter. I tell you that I live with my parents and siblings. Thank God, we are all in good health. My father works in a shoe store while my mother works as a cook. My sister works as a cook in a restaurant too and my brother is a taxi driver. I am in fifth grade this year and I have never repeated a grade. One of my best days was when I played my first championship, and one of my hardest days was when I hurt one of my arms. Recently, I went on a school trip and they took us to the army camp. I saw all the guns and tanks they have there. I spent a happy Christmas with my family, and we lit fireworks and drank a lot of ponche (hot fruit drink). In addition, my mother bought me new clothes.
I want to be a soldier and I dream to become a good soccer player. My family and I attend Ebenezer Church, and we always pray to God when we are passing through difficult moments. I want to ask you to pray for us so that we are always a united family and have the necessities to live. I say goodbye to you for now with many hugs and kisses. May God bless you!
With much love
Keony Isaac Piedramartel Cifuentes
