My Story

How are you? I hope this letter finds you in good health. I am Petronila Morente Ajqui, and I am happy to tell you about my life. I am 12 years old and I am in third grade this year. My teacher assigns me the homework on my notebooks every Tuesday and Friday, and he checks it on Friday. It has been difficult for me to learn with this study method but I solve my doubts when I attend school. My father works as a farmer and he grows tomatoes and herbs. My mother is a housewife and she sells her herbs and domestic animals in the market. We were economically affected by this pandemic because there was a time that my father did not find work and my mother could not sell her products. We survive thanks to the feeding program and the school’s support.

God has never left us alone and has blessed us in different ways. We received grocery bags from Living Water when we needed them most and God multiplied everything. My family is very grateful to the Ministry for all the support I have received, and I pray God blesses it in a big way. Thank God, none of my family has gotten Covid-19, and we are healthy. We are not attending church because we do not have much time. Lastly, I want to tell you that my mother helped me to give this information by phone to a LW Evangelism teacher. The staff did not meet us personally because they are avoiding physical contact as much as possible since they want to protect us from the current virus. I say goodbye to you for now. May God bless you!

Love and kind regards
