Hello dearest sponsor! How are you? I want to tell you that I live with my father who is a mason here in Duenas, and my mother who is a housewife. All of us are in good health. My sister Lidia works cleaning another house and helps my parents with the expenses. Thanks to God, all of my family is in good health. I am in 2nd grade and my favorite classes are Art and P.E. I do not work, but I help at home watering the yard and the flowers. One day, we went to Antigua and I really liked walking around the streets and eating fried chicken. When I grow up, I want to be a teacher so that I can teach other children. In my free time, I like to play soccer and to visit my grandmother who lives close to my house. I like to be with my cousins and other family. My family does not go to church, and I do not know they reason why.
One of our difficult moments as a family is when we do not have enough money for food. I do not know what my parents do to give us food, but they give us noodles, beans or eggs. We only have one small room, and we sleep and cook in the same room. We rent the room which has tin sheet metal walls and a dirt floor. We have running water, electricity and drainage. My favorite color is orange, and my favorite animal is the dog. We have a small dog named “Pinky”. I ask you to pray for my family that we will always have the necessities. I say goodbye to you wishing you many blessings.
Blessings and much love,
Luis Miguel Lopez Ordonez
