Hello! Let me begin by thanking you for taking the time to read my update. I want to tell you that I walk for ten minutes to arrive to the feeding program. I am Juana Marisol. I am 15 years old and I had my birthday in July. Last year I finished my sixth grade at school and this year I could not continue with my studies. I like to help my mother with the household work or herding our sheep.
The people who live in the house are my mother, siblings and me. My mother´s duties are doing the housework. Also, she raises hens and sheep for selling in order to get money for our family needs. Unfortunately my father abandoned us about a year ago and he is not supporting us in any way. He used to farm the land and work on the coast. 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!
