Hello dearest Padrinos! I send you warm greetings and I hope you and your family are in good health and enjoying our Lord’s blessings. Thank God, my family and I are healthy. My father is no longer able to work because he is an elderly person. He stays at home and hires some workers to farm our piece of land during the rainy season. My mother weaves typical blouses for selling and she buys some groceries with the money that she earns. I thank you for the gifts you sent me. They were a great blessing for my family and me. I would like to meet you in person someday and give thank you personally for all that you have done for me. I only passed sixth grade because my parents did not want me to continue studying.
Now, I dedicate my time to helping my mother to weave and do the household chores. My family and I are members of Church of Christ and we attend it on Tuesday and Sunday in the afternoons. On Sunday morning, my mother and I go to buy our groceries at the local market. I like attending the feeding program because the food is delicious, and I learn about God through the Bible classes. I always do my best to faithfully attend the program even though it is located far away from my house. Take care of yourself. I say goodbye to you for now hoping to hear from you soon.
With much love
Selena Gomez Morente
