Hello! I will start by giving you thanks for taking the time to read my update. I walk for ten to arrive to the feeding program. I am Jennifer Elizabeth but everybody affectionately calls me Jeny. I am 16 years old and I will have my birthday in October. I no longer attend school. I help with the chores at home. In my free time, I like to watch TV programs.
The people who live in the house are my mother, siblings and me. Sadly, my father passed away some months ago. He suffered from diabetes. My mother´s duties are taking care of us and doing the housework. She washes clothes for other people and she raises domestic animals for selling. She does her best effort to cover the home expenses in spite of the current situation. We are members of the Catholic 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.
Thinking of you!
Jennifer Elizabeth De La Cruz Barillas
