My Story

Hello! My name is Henri Sherro. I am 5 years old and my birthday is on November 28th. My favorite color is blue but I also like red. I am attending the preschool kindergarten at present and enjoy my time there. Our teacher teaches to us to read and to write as well as counting. After the lessons, we have a dedicated time to play with the toys that the kindergarten has got. My mother takes me from the kindergarten at midday. I gather to play with my friends after having my launch and we usually enjoy playing hide and seek, with a ball, do running races and many other games that are simple. I have many friends who live near my home and we come together to play in the road.

My family and I live in Dunica, This village is located in Upper Mokra, Pogradec. I have four persons in my family. My father’s name is Marjus and my mother’s name is Denada. I have a brother who is only four months old at present. His name is Hensli. He is so lovely and has brought a lot of joy to us all as family. I like to carry him in my lap when my mother permits it. My father emigrates and works in Greece for three to six months within the year. He is hired there for a few months in agriculture and for the other few months in construction. We miss him very much when he is not home, but we are thankful that when he is working there, he is benefiting more income. My mother has also planted vegetables for us in the garden that we have close to our home. My mother provides for us fresh vegetables as beans, peppers, tomatoes, onions, etc. We have also got whole nuts and my father sells them during the season of autumn. We have a horse and my father is collecting wood in the mountain so that we don’t buy the wood we consume during the winter. Winters are cold in my country and we need to keep the fire burning for a long time. My father is also selling the wood that he is collecting and by doing this we gain a bit more of income. My father works also in the village doing maintains jobs but he earns very less from the people who live in the village. Even that we are not very poor, we remain challenged financially and in other ways.

The Living Water International team goes to Dunica on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. There we have rented a home to do our Bible classes for the children as well as Bible studies for the men and ladies. The children in Dunica who are registered in the sponsorship programme of Adopt a child are asked to come together with their parents in these meetings. Once every six weeks, each child receives a food package that contains groceries as pasta, rice, oil, sugar and other food items. We are thankful to the Lord for each of the sponsors who bless the children to be feed physically and spiritually. God bless you all!
