I will start by giving you thanks for taking the time to read my update. I walk for five minutes to arrive to the feeding program. I am Jonathan Estuardo. I am 15 years old and my birthday was in April. I take classes in my village and I am a ninth-grade student. My school is about fifteen minutes away from my home. I love Mathematics but Art is a little difficult for me. Since my school is closed for Covid-19, I have been receiving homework by WhatsApp which I have to turn in the same way. My hobbies are playing soccer and watching television.
The people who live in the house are my parents, siblings and me. My father´s job consists of working as a delivery person and my mother´s job is selling shaved ice drinks in the local market but due to the pandemic situation she is not working. Now her duties are taking care of us and doing the housework. Thanks to God, my father continues working normally for a company named Optica Más Vista. We are not members of the any 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!
Jonathan Estuardo Gutierrez Soto
AAC NOTE: After the first COVID-19 case was confirmed in our country (March 13, 2020), our President ordered the closure of all the schools in order to prevent children becoming affected by this virus. We do not know when the schools will open again. However, most of the schools are assigning homework to their students to cover the content for the current school year. As a team, we are praying that God takes control of this situation soon so that we may continue on with our lives.
