My Story

I hope you are in good health together with your loved ones. I am Yonathan Ariel Paz Gomez and I am eleven years old. I am in the fourth grade at school and I am receiving guides to do at home due to the pandemic. My sister goes to school every fifteen days because she is in charge of delivering my homework. It has been difficult for me to study because my mother´s incomes are limited and I do not understand some of my homework. Unfortunately, my father passed away about one year ago. He died from bronchial pneumonia. My mother does the household chores and takes care of us. We were affected in our economy due to the Covid-19 but we could survive with the support that we received from other people. We also have received economic support from one of my aunts who works as a maid in our town.

We have seen God´s faithfulness in our lives because we have not gotten sick and we have had food in spite of the current situation. We have received groceries bags and it has been a great blessing for us because it arrived just on time. Thank God, my siblings and I did not run out of food. My mother and I are very grateful to the program and to LW Church for all the support that we have received. Fortunately, we have not gotten sick from the virus and we are in good health. We attend Christian Church every Wednesday and Sunday. One of the Evangelism Teachers called my mother and she was the one who gave this information about me; it was by phone due to the Covid-19 situation. May God bless you and take care of always!

Lots of hugs,

Yonathan Ariel Paz Gomez
