My Story

Hello! How are you? I am Jefferson, and I will take this opportunity to tell you how my family and I are doing this 2023. First let’s talk about my loved ones. My father’s name was Isidro, and sadly, he passed away some years ago. My mother’s name is Joaquina, and she is 45 years old. She is in good health and struggles to support us. She works hard at home and weaves typical clothes to sell. We are a humble family who are in need of corn and groceries. We raise hens and pigs and grow corn for our consumption. We are still members of Rock of Salvation Methodist Church, and we attend it twice a week; we are assured of our Salvation.

Thankfully, I find am healthy, and my favorite sport is soccer. I am 10 years old, and I want to become a policeman when I am older. I would like to learn English language too. I am repeating 2nd grade again, and it is easier to do my homework now that I am receiving face-to-face classes. It has been difficult for my mother to support me with my studies because she is the only one who works for us. It would be incredible to break a “piñata” for my birthday. My personal tastes are orange juice as a beverage and Christmas as a celebration; I love lighting fireworks. Living Water and you are very important to me, and I am grateful for the delicious food received. I end my letter hoping you find it interesting. May God bless you!

Warm greetings

Jefferson De La Cruz Yat
