Hello! I send you a cordial greeting. I hope you are enjoying blessings from God. Thank God, we all are in good health. There are five children in my family and three of us are part of the feeding program. I have two younger sisters and I am the older sibling. Before, my father went to the coast to work but now he grows peas. An institution gave my father pea seeds, fertilizer and materials the peas need to grow. He has seen that the crop earns a little money so for that reason he preferred to continue with his crops. My mother is a housewife and she raises domestic animals such as hens, sheep and she sells them when necessary.
My family and I attend Prince of Peace Church once a week. In the afternoon, I do my homework and help my father with his crops. I enjoy playing with my friends at school because at home I cannot because I have to help with the chores. I am in the fifth grade. When I grow up, I would like to find a job and have my own money. I like to attend the feeding program because I receive delicious food. I take advantage of playing with my friends in the program too. In Guatemala the custom is to celebrate Father´s Day, Mother´s Day, Valentine´s Day, Holy Week and Christmas and I like all the seasons. I thank you for supporting me because I can enjoy many blessings. Keep going in your activities. Take care of yourself. I hope to hear from you soon. May God bless you!
Hugs and Kisses,
Santos Chingo Cux
