Hello! My name is Anisa Kodra. I am a 15 years old girl and my birthday is on October 11th. I am doing well and enjoy good health. My favorite color is black. I usually pick this color in my clothes or sport outfits and trainers that my parents buy for me. My future dream is to be a police. I attend the 8th grade at school and am very happy that now we can take the lessons in our class and not online. Because of the Pandemic, we are wearing masks and respect the distancing while we attend school but I am happy to be there so that I can learn better and meet with my friends. My favorite subject at school is Math. Right after school, I like to get together with my friends so that we can have a short walk and fellowship between us. We also occasionally like to play volleyball or basketball at he school environment. I do my best to help my mother with the housekeeping and when she asks me to buy something in the groceries store, I run to get it for her.
During this winter we had snow for a week as well as many rainy days and had to stay inside. When I am inside, I like to read my school books or see programmes on the TV.
My family and I live in Pogradec. My father’s name is Romeo and my mother’s name is Esmeralda. My parents are divorced and I live with my mother. My father doesn’t bring to me any support so only my mother provides for me and for my sister. My mother after the divorce left her home and we don’t have a place of our own to live in. My aunt (mother’s sister) has taken us to live with her and in her home we use one room as bedroom. We all share the food that my mother and my aunt provide, but they are both jobless and live only with a social assistance that the government is giving to help in our needs being extremely poor. This amount is as small as it can only be used to cover the bills for electricity and water, but we are also buying food with what is left.
About our activities: The Living Water Adopt a Child started to register the children in the new programme of Pogradec. The children who are part of the program frequent the Bible classes on Saturdays. The church in Pogradec has besides the Saturday services a Bible study for the ladies on Thursdays. The church is growing in numbers and our next plans are to open a Bible study for teens and youth as well as another meeting for the ladies during the afternoons. All the children who are part of the programme are benefiting help spiritually and physically. Every month they receive a package that contains groceries that are so needed, especially during the pandemic we are going through. Thank you for carrying for the children who are in the most need to be feed physically and eager to receive Bible lessons. God bless you!
