Hello! Let me begin by thanking you for taking the time to read my update. I want to tell you that I walk for one hour to arrive to the feeding program. I am Rayder Augusto but everybody affectionately calls me Augusto. I am 13 years old and I will have my birthday in December. Unfortunately I could not continue with my studies because I have to go to another school that it is far from my home. Last year I finished sixth grade. So, for now I work farming the land for our neighbors. I am missing the feeding program and sharing with the LW staff.
The people who live in the house are my parents, siblings and me. My father´s job consists of farming the land and sometimes I go to work with him. My mother´s duties are doing the housework and raising hens for selling when we have some needs. My family and I are members of Prince of Peace Church. I am grateful to God because we all are in good health. In spite of the hard health situation that we are currently facing in our country, our Lord has been taking care of us. We trust in our Lord's mercy and that He will put His healing hands over all people who are suffering during this pandemic. I would like to receive a letter from you and have the opportunity to share our life experiences with each other.
God bless you!
Rayder Augusto Mechen Garcia
