My Story

Hello!

It is a blessing for me to greet you and tell you about my life through this letter. My name is Moises Adolfo Miranda Chingo, and I send you lots of hugs from the bottom of my heart. I am six years old. Happily, I want you to know that I am in kindergarten. I receive classes daily; I am learning my lessons well thanks to this method. After school, I help my mother to wash some dishes. As you know, the pandemic forced many places to close, and the feeding program was no exception. Fortunately, it is open again, and I am glad because I have the opportunity to enjoy delicious lunches. The program is a 25-minute walk from where I live. My father works hard in the cleaning area for a hospital in Joyabaj town to cover the expenses. While he works outside, my mother does the chores, raises a pig, takes care of my younger brother and me, and weaves typical items. My family and I enjoy special moments together, and sometimes we go for walks in the field, which is in our community.

Christmas is the most beautiful time of the year, but we do not celebrate it as we would like because of our lower resources. We still attend the United Pentecostal Church and walk 20 minutes from our home to get there. Despite the virus, our church continued working as usual and did not close its doors. I want you to know that my family and I live with my grandparents in their house. Their property is comprised of adobe walls, tin sheet roof, and cement floors. We use one room and share the kitchen, electricity, and the well with my grandparents. Fortunately, the house is in good condition. Even though the number of people infected with the virus has decreased, essential products continue to be expensive, and because of that, our current necessities are groceries and clothes. Nevertheless, I praise the Lord because my whole family and I are healthy. Finally, let me tell you that my mother gave this information to an evangelism team member to share with you my last news. I leave you now, but if you want to know something else about my life, feel free to ask me.

Sincerely yours,

Moises Adolfo Miranda Chingo
