Hello! Before anything else, I want to thank you for taking time to read my letter. I hope you are enjoying our God’s richest blessings along with your family. My name is Elena De La Cruz Ruiz and I am 16 years old. At the moment, I keep busy myself doing the chores and shepherding our sheep. My father works hard as a day laborer or farming the land in order to cover our family needs. On the other hand, my mother works cleaning our home and raising sheep to contribute with the incomes. The current world situation affected my family working and financially. Despite of this, we never lacked food on our table.
Thank God, we could go ahead with the grocery bags that Living Water and our brethren brought us. This extra support helped us to survive for some days. For this reason, we are so grateful to you for supporting many families like mine. We pray so that God blesses you for everything you have done for us. Thankfully, my whole family and I have been in good health. We are members of the Catholic Charismatic Renewal group and we usually go for an hour on Wednesdays. Finally, let me tell you that my older brother Joaquin De La Cruz assisted a member of the Evangelism team to update this information about me by phone, since the staff want to protect us from the current pandemic. I leave you for now, but I would like to hear about you soon.
Many kisses and hugs,
Elena De La Cruz Ruiz
