My Story

This is Osvaldo Leonel Riz Gomez, and I am updating you about my family and me. First, I will tell you about my family. Currently, we are members of Prince of Peace Church, and we attend services on Saturday. My parents are instructing my siblings and me to walk in God’s Way. We have ducks and hens at home. At the moment, our needs are groceries and corn. My father’s name is Camilo. He is 32 years old, and he is in good health. He works as a mason helper, and he does his best to cover our needs. My mother’s name is Estela. She is 29 years old, and she is healthy too. She is a housewife, and she raises hens for selling and helping with the home income.

Now let me tell you a little about myself. I am 8 years old, and I am healthy. I am in 2nd grade, and it is better for me to receive face-to-face classes because I learn more. It has been difficult for my father to support me with my studies because he has other expenses. I want to become a police officer when I am older. I prefer soccer as a sport, and I love drinking lemonade. My favorite year’s celebration is Christmas because I can buy and light fireworks. I get excited for my birthday because my parents buy me a cake and I wear my nicest clothes. I would like to learn to speak English. Living Water is very important in my life because I receive food and medicine for free. I end my letter wishing you the best. 

With much love

Osvaldo Leonel Riz Gomez
