It is a wonderful day to say hello to you! I am Jasson Misael Cux Luis and I am already 14 years old. My family and I attend Liberty Church from LW on Tuesdays. We trust our salvation in Christ. My mother is Andrea Luis Morales, and her age is 40 years old. She is the one who supports the family. She washes clothes for other people and goes to make tortillas in the town twice per week to get income. My brother Danny and I go to pick coffee beans on the coast for a month to help my mother with the income. We raise some sheep and sell then in needy times. We do not have land to grow crops. My father is Anacleto, and he is 39 years old. He is having pain in his right leg, and it does not allow him to work because it hurts when he is walking. At the moment, he only goes to collect firewood and does easy jobs. He has not visited a doctor due to lack of resources and only buys some pills in the pharmacy to avoid the pain. So, I want to ask for prayers for him. Besides that, my mother, siblings and I are in good health.
At school, I am repeating second grade again. Now, I receive classes at school; it is better since I understand and learn the lessons easier. My mother is striving to support us and buy school supplies for my siblings and me; she does not have enough money, so it is hard for her. Let me tell you my native language is one Quiche dialect, and I can speak a little Spanish, but I would like to improve it. On my birthday, I like to wear my newest clothes; it is only if my mother is able to buy me something. I enjoy playing football because it is my favorite sport. My favorite drink is orange juice. I like Holy Week because we can eat different typical food; it is delicious. I feel so blessed to be part of the feeding program and receive the meals because it is a big help to me and my siblings. Take care. Every blessing for you!
