Hello! How are you? I hope you are doing well together with your loved ones. I am greeting you from Chuchuca feeding program. I am writing you this letter to tell you a little about my life. First, I want to thank you for taking the time to read my letter. I am also grateful to you for all the support you have given me through Living Water. Thank God, my family and I are fine. I live with my parents and I have one brother and three sisters. I am very happy because my father is now with us. He was in the United States but he was deported at the end of the last year. It was hard for him but I feel blessed to have him with us again. He does not have a job now while my mother works hard at home. I stay at home and I help to gather firewood and grow corn for our consumption.
In my free time, I play football and watch TV; I love the movies. I am in fifth grade this year and I love attending school because I learn new things every day. I have made many friends. Now that my father is here, we have gone to other villages to have a good time with our family. I love Christmas time because our close relatives come to visit us and we eat “tamales” all together. I also light some fireworks. My family attends Assembly of God Church and I like it because we learn to be better people. We have services on Tuesday and Friday. I am very happy to have the opportunity to attend the feeding program because we receive delicious dishes. I thank you for making it possible. I pray God blesses your family and you. I say goodbye to you for now hoping to have news from you soon.
With much love
Mynor Marcelino Ruiz Mendez
