I am happy to inform you about my life and family. I am Mildred Elisandra Riz De La Cruz, and I am 11 years old. I am in fifth grade this year, and I am receiving classes on Tuesday. I personally deliver my homework to the teacher every week. I sometimes feel sad because I do not understand my lessons and I cannot do my homework very well. My father works as a farmer and he does his best to cover our needs. My mother is a housewife but she raises domestic animals like hens and turkeys and sells fruits in the local market on Sundays. This pandemic affected us in different ways. First, we could not attend church frequently, and second, my mother had to stop selling her fruits for some time which affected us financially.
We have seen God’s faithfulness in our lives because we have always had food at home. It was a great blessing for us when we received grocery bags from Living Water because they supplied many of our needs. I am grateful to the Ministry for the big effort done to support my family and me. I am very happy for it. We are in good health, and we are attending church on Saturday; our service lasts one hour. Lastly, I want to tell you that my sister helped me to give this information by phone to a LW Evangelism collaborator. 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 hope you succeed in everything you do.
With love and hugs
Mildred Elisandra Riz De La Cruz
