My Story

I am Gerson Roberto Matias Fuentes, and I am happy to introduce myself to you through this. I hope you are fine. I am thirteen years old. This year I am in sixth grade. On Monday every two weeks, I receive study guides to study from home. Thankfully, I continue to learn. Not having taken face-to-face classes, has not affected me. The time the feeding program was closed due to the pandemic, I missed a lot the Bible teachings and delicious food. Thank God it is open now. For me to get there, it takes three minutes by walking. To earn a living, my father works as a day laborer to provide for my family economically. My mom works as a housemaid, and thanks to it, she provides for our household expenses. Thankfully, my family and I spend time every day, so we talk and enjoy this time together. The only way we celebrated Christmas was staying home and enjoying this time together. At the moment, we are attending Catholic Church located ten minutes away from home by walking. We felt sad the time the church was closed due to the pandemic, for we could not attend it. Now everything is normal, so we can attend it already.

We live in three-room house with separate kitchen, made of cement block, tin sheet roof and concrete floor. It has electricity and running water. The hosue condition is good. Pandemic did affect my family. There was no work, so getting money and food turned difficult. The grocery bags we received from the feeding program were all a great blessing and help at home. I thank to everyone who provided this support to bless my family and me. At the moment, my family is doing well, and so am I, thank God. Finally, I want you to know, I gave this information in person to an Evangelism team member to share with you my last news. Looking forward to hearing from you. God bless you.

Special regards,

Gerson Roberto Matias Fuentes
