My Story

Hello,

I am so glad to greet you by this letter hoping you are doing great. I am Luis Enrique and I am 14 years old. I am so excited to share with you about how my family and I are doing at this weird time due to the pandemic situation. This year I attend sixth grade and it seems that I will continue with study guides at home. So, my father has to take my completed tasks to my teacher every fifteen days. For me, it has been difficult to understand the lessons and unfortunately, my parents have not studied and hardly ever understand and cannot explain to me. Thanks to God, my family and I are in good health and none of us have been infected with covid-19 so far. My father continues working selling cellphone accessories int the streets and is striving to cover our family needs. My parents got separated some years ago and my mother left home.  She is not giving us any economic support and this makes it harder for my father.

Unfortunately, the pandemic situation has affected our family economy since my father´s sales are low, and for a time, he could not travel to other villages to sell his products. However, I have seen God´s faithfulness to us because we have received support from our kind neighbors who shared some food with us. Besides that, we have received groceries from Living Water/ Adopt A Child which has been a great support in these hard times. We thank God, for providing our food on our table and for never leaving us alone. As I had said, my father does not have a good job and the groceries have been a great blessing for us. So, I am deeply thankful to LW and I have no words to give the thanks for your help. I pray our Lord continues blessing everyone for their unconditional support to me in this weird time. My family and I are not attending any church since my parents got separated. Well, I hope this letter finds you doing great. May God bless and take care of you wherever you go!

In Jesus name

Luis Enrique Ajanel Toj
