Hello! My name is Eljona Singej. I am 11 years old and my birthday is on June 5th. I am doing well and in good health. My favorite color is blue and my future dream is to be an advocate. At present I frequent the fifth grade of school and am doing my maximum to study well. The subject that I like the most in school is English. Because of the pandemic, we are respecting the distancing and wear masks, but I am happy that we can go to take the lessons physically and don’t have to do school online. After school, usually I like to help my grandmother and mother at home. I like to do the tiding up and put things to place after we dine. I always find free time during the day to get together with my friends. My favorite game is hide and seek, but we play with ball, do run races, jump using ropes and have many other simple games. At rare times, my family and I have walks during the evenings and go by the lake. At present the weather is getting cold and the days are very short.
My family and I live in Pogradec. My father’s name is Fatjon and my mother’s name is Sonilda. I am their only child. My father is working in construction in order to provide for the three of us and for our grandmother who is also part of our family. His job is hard, but we are thankful that he is constantly working and constantly providing. My mother is also working in a company where they are sewing blouses, sweaters, etc for export. She receives a very small pay which is as well used in our family to cover the living costs. When my parents are working my grandmother cares for me at home. She cares that I am not left alone in the house. Even that both my parents work, we live with low income and I am very thankful to have the opportunity to be registered in the programme in order to benefit help and care from the church in Pogradec.
The Living Water Adopt a Child church in Pogradec has the services on Saturdays. After the time of worship, the children go to the Bible classes and there they are taking Bible lessons from the teachers of our staff. Before the church service, our Pastor is also organizing a special youth meeting where they can fellowship and study the Bible altogether. We have during the week a Bible study for the ladies, on Thursdays. Every six weeks, the children who are frequenting the progarmme receive a food package that is provided from Adopt a Child. The package contains rice, oil, pasta, sugar, etc. Thank you for helping us to care for these children and tell them the Good News about Jesus. God bless you!
