My Story

Dear Sponsor,

I am very happy to update you on my personal information. I am Raysa Alejandra Melgar Arrazola, and I am now 10 years old. This year, I am in fourth grade and I am receiving study guides to do my homework. My mother goes to leave my homework at school every week. It has been hard for me to study with this method because there are some topics that I do not understand, so I have to ask my mother or teacher. The pandemic affected my mother because she lost her job and she is still looking for a new one. At the moment, she is working hard at home. My mother had a partner and they had my brother; unfortunately, they got separated but he continues supporting us financially; I affectionately called him father. I do not have any type of relationship with my biological father.

We have seen God’s faithfulness through these difficult times because we have always had the necessary to live and have been in good health. We received grocery bags from the feeding program and they were a great blessing for us because there were times that we did not have enough money to buy our basics. I am very grateful to Living Water for all the support received from the feeding program and clinics. Thank God, my family and I are in good health, and none of us has gotten Covid-19. We are members of one church called Ebenezer, but we are not attending it due to the pandemic. I say goodbye to you for now hoping to hear from you soon.

Love and kind regards

Raysa Alejandra Melgar Arrazola
