Hello! I am so glad to send many greetings. I am Irma Julieth, and I will be turning 13 years old in June. I attend 7th grade, and I receive a class by google meet App. I also study from home with study guides, and I go to pick up the guides at my school. I use WhatsApp and need to have the internet on my cellphone. It is still hard for me to understand the topics since I only receive a quick explanation from my teacher. During the pandemic, I missed attending the feeding program especially the bible classes. Thank God, the program is open again. I live 15 minutes from the program. My father is working as a security guard and is the one who supplies our home needs. On the other hand, my mother stays busy with her duties at home. I usually share good times with my mother at lunch and talk every time. Nevertheless, I do not have much time to share with my father due to his job. Lately, we have celebrated Christmas with dinner alongside my parents, siblings, and nephew at home.
By the grace of God, we are in good health. At the moment, we are not attending church. We live in our own property; it has a room and a separate kitchen both are made of block and tin sheet roof with cement floor. Fortunately, we have water and electricity services. One of our needs is to repair the roof of the kitchen because it has some leaks, and we hope to fix it before the winter comes. Another of our needs is groceries because my father does not earn too much and it is harder for him to cover all our needs. Due to the pandemic situation, my father had a reduction in his payment, and it made things harder for us at home. We give thanks to God and Living Water for the food parcels that they have delivered us so far. Each product is essential and it is a great blessing for my family. Let me tell you the LW team called us and gave me a date in the program, so I provided in person this information for you. I hope to hear from you soon. Many blessings!
Kisses and hugs,
Irma Julieth Cutzan Cabrera
