My Story

Hello dearest sponsor!  I hope that you and your family are doing well.  I am pleased to be able to write this letter for you.  I want to tell you that my family and I are in good health.  We raise peas to sell and help with the family expenses.  My father works as a farmer and my mother is in charge of taking care of us.  Also, my father has a truck that he sometimes uses to make trips.  However, he does not always work in that.  We do not travel to the coast to work.  I am in the 4th grade and my favorite course is Mathematics.  My favorite sport is soccer and I like to play with my cousin in the woods. 

When I get home from school, I help a little with the chores like looking for firewood.  For now, I do not know what I want to be when I grow up, but I want to be a good worker and make money in order to help my family.  For us, Holy Week is a joyful time because we eat bread with honey.  Also we are reunited with all of our family.  We attend a church called Prince of Peace and I like to learn about God there.  I give thanks to God for your life and for the help that you have give me.  I hope that God helps all of your plans succeed this year.  Take care of yourself.

Blessings and much love,

Tomas Chingo Gutierrez
