My Story

I am Nelson Dario, I am 11 years old and I live along with my parents and siblings. I attend 3rd grade and I receive face-to-face classes on Monday. I deliver my homework to my teacher every week, when I go to school. For me, it has been very difficult to move forward in my studies because I receive classes once a week and the time it is not enough to understand the lessons. Therefore, I have troubles when I am doing my homework and sometimes, I do not do it for the same reason. My mother is a housewife and raises domestic animals. In addition, she sells “tamales” (typical homemade food) in the market and she contributes with the income. My father works hard as a farmer and day laborer to support our family. He also grows corn and black beans.

I want to let you know that an evangelism teacher of LW called my mother, Natalia Lopez by phone to get this updated information since the feeding program is still closed due to the pandemic. Let me tell you that the covid-19 pandemic came to affect us because my mother could not continue with the sales in the market for a time due to all the restrictions. And, my father also ran out of work. During that time my parents had borrowed money to buy our food. Thanks to God and His faithfulness, we received support from my school and from the feeding program. We appreciate all the support that Living Water / Adopt A Child has been giving us during this time. The help arrived when we needed it most. My family and I are deeply thankful to you for all the support that we receive from you through LW. We pray that our Lord blesses you for your generosity toward us. Fortunately, we are healthy and the covid-19 has not affected us so far. We attend a Christian Church, and the services are on Saturday and Sunday. I say goodbye to you for now. Every blessing for you and your lovely family!

In Jesus name,

Nelson Dario Zacarias Lopez
