My Story

I hope you are having a blessed day! Praise the Lord my family and I are attending a Christian Church, and we go on Wednesdays and Saturdays. We thank them the LW staff because they shared the gospel and gave us encouraging words to continue seeking God and trust our salvation in Christ. I thank God for keeping me healthy as well my family. My mother is Ignacia, and she is 38 years old. She is a housewife and goes to wash clothes for other people. In addition, she weaves typical clothes and raises hens for selling and getting income. My father is Manuel, and he is 48 years old. Sadly, he abandoned us years ago, and he does not support us in any way since he left to go to the United States.

I am Cristian Alexander Coj Cux, and I am already 13 years old. I am attending 6th grade; my classes are at school, and it is better to comprehend the lessons in this way. Since my mother is a single parent, it is very hard for her to cover all the school expenses, so I am thankful for her struggles. I want to grow up quickly to be able to work as a farmer and help my mother get income. The language I would like to learn is English; it is so interesting. The climate I prefer is winter because I enjoy playing in the rain. I like to play football in my free time; it is the sport I like the most. I like “Incaparina” (it is a hot drink) because it is delicious and nutritious. To celebrate my birthday, my mother cooks a special lunch and buys a cake; it happens only if my mother has the resources to do it. I am very thankful to Living Water who provides me with a tasty meal each time I go, and the dental and medical attention; it is a big blessing for me. The greatest needs are groceries, and clothes. Take care. Hoping to receive news from you soon. May God bless you!

Strong hugs,

Cristian Alexander Coj Cux
