I feel so happy to share with you a little about me. I hope you are in good health. My name is Nanci Yamilet Gonzalez Barrillas and I am eleven years old. I am not attending school because I have to take care of my siblings while my mother is working. Last year, I was in the second grade. My mother is the only one who covers the home expenses and it was difficult for her to pay the school expenses. Now it is more difficult to study because the internet is needed. Unfortunately, my father passed away about five years ago. My mother works picking green beans on a farm called ¨El Socorro¨. She supplies our needs. Sadly, we were affected in our economy by the pandemic because my mother lost her job and she was washing clothes for other people for a time. Thank God, we could survive with God´s help.
We have seen God´s mercy in our lives because he always has provided us our food. It has been a great blessing for us to receive the groceries from the feeding program because we could feed ourselves and we are a family with many needs. My family and I are very grateful to you for helping us through Living Water. Fortunately, we have not gotten sick from the virus and we are in good health. We attend Christian Church every Friday, Saturday and Sunday. I want to tell you that one of the Evangelism Teachers called me and I gave this information by phone due to the Covid-19. May God bless you and take care of you always!
In Jesus name,
Nanci Yamilet Gonzalez Barrillas
