My Story

I will start by giving you the thanks for taking the time to read my update. I walk for twenty minutes to arrive to the feeding program. I am Yoni Maicol but everybody affectionately calls me Yoni. I am 15 years old and my birthday was in April. I take classes in my village and I am a seventh-grade student. My school is about forty five minutes away from my home. I love Physical Education but Mathematics is a little difficult for me. In my free time, I like to watch TV.  

The people who live in the house are my mother, sibling and me. My father is living and working in the United States. Fortunately, he supports us with the home expenses. Thank God, he continues working in spite of the current situation. My mother´s duties are taking care of us and doing the housework. My sister and I are members of the Living Water Church called Liberty. 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!

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.
