My Story

Hello! I wish you a brilliant day and hope you are fine with your loved ones.  I want to share a little about my family and me in this opportunity. My name is Hector Gabriel De La Cruz Ajqui and I am 9 years old. My mother`s name is Dominga Ajqui Hernandez. She is 37 years old. Currently, she does chores at home, and she continues raising hens, and pigs. Moreover, she washes clothes for others in order to help with home expenses. My father`s name is Romeo De La Cruz.  He is 40 years old. He continues working as a day laborer and also travels to the coast to pick coffee during the harvest season. We grow corn, and peaches for our family`s consumption.  As a humble family, our current needs are corn and groceries. At the time, we continue attending the Catholic Church every Monday. Thank you to the LW evangelism team who shared the Gospel and encouraged my family to continue seeking God and trust in him. Thank God, all my family and I are in good health.

This year, I am in 3rd grade at school. Thankfully, I am receiving face-to-face classes every day. I prefer this study method because it is funny and I learn a lot. My parents strive to support my siblings and me at school. Nowadays, school fees are expensive and sometimes it is difficult to cover all expenses due to a lack of stable jobs. My dream is to become a fireman. My native language is the Quiche Mayan dialect, so I would like to learn Spanish and improve my communication with other people. I love to celebrate Christmas because I spend the day with my family. My favorite beverage is “Incaparina” (a hot drink made with soy and corn flour). I do not celebrate my birthday because of a lack of economic resources, but I am sure that someday I will. We are grateful to Living Water because I receive the meals, medical and dental attention, and spiritual support. I want to say thank you for the Christmas gift that I receive at year`s end. Sending love. Every blessing to you!

Hugs with much love,

Hector Gabriel De La Cruz Ajqui
