Hello! I am so glad you take time to read my personal information. I am Mynor Elias, and I am 9 years old. I attend 3rd grade, and I am receiving classes at school 2 or 3 days every week. Thank God, I am moving forward in my studies. I enjoy playing soccer, toy cars, and hide-and-seek with my brother and friends. During the time the feeding program was closed, I missed the food the team usually served us; thank God, the program is open again. I walk 3 minutes to get to the program. My father in the United States and works as a cook; he keeps in touch and sends us financial support. My mother is a housewife, but she is also a weaver. We are healthy, thanks to God.
My mother, siblings and I usually share some snacks in the afternoon and talk about anything. We attend Prince of Peace church. My mother leads the praises and the services at church. We do not have the custom to celebrate Christmas at church. During the pandemic, we had services, but behind closed doors. We do not have our own house, so we live in my maternal grandmother´s house, and we do not pay for rent. We share the expenses with my grandparents. The house has 4 rooms and a separate kitchen; those are made of adobe, tile roof and dirt floor. We have water and electricity services. For now, the house condition is good. I tell you that during the pandemic there were a few months when my father could not send us money, but thank God, my grandparents helped us for a while. In addition, we received support from Living Water, and we were so happy because it was savings for us at home. As a family, our priority needs are food and clothes. To finish, I want to let you know that the LW team called us and asked for this updated information, so my mother provided it to them over the phone. I send many hugs, and I hope to receive news from you soon. Every blessing for you!
Lot of hugs,
Mynor Elias Lopez Garcia
