My name is Carlos Andy Estiven Godinez Mijangos, and it is a pleasure for me to greet you through this. This year I turn seventeen years old. I was not allowed to receive the drafting class face-to-face, and explanations from the teacher was not good online last year, so it has affected me a lot. That’s why, I am repeating 9th grade. Currently, my classes are online, and I hand in my homework the day I go to school every two weeks. The thing I missed a lot from the feeding program was, the tasty food and God’s teachings. For me to get there, it takes fifteen minutes away by walking. To earn a living, my father works as a plumber, and my mom works as a nurse. They both work hard to provide for our household expenses. On Sundays, my family and I go out and spend a nice time together.
We did celebrate Christmas by setting a tree, decorations and preparing food for we like this special season. My family and I are members in the Catholic Church, located ten minutes away from home. We waited for the church to reopen, because it was closed due to the pandemic. The four-room house we live in, is ours. It has separate kitchen. It is made of cement block, tin sheet roof and concrete floor. It has electricity and running water. I take this time to thank to the feeding program for the grocery bags we received during the pandemic. Food supplies, money to pay expenses for the house and the studies is a greatest need at home, so it was a great help for my family and me. God has been faithful to us, so we have had the necessary at home. For now, we are all doing well, thankfully. Lastly, I want you to know, my mom gave this information in person, to an Evangelism team member who visited us at home, to share with you my last news. I say good bye to you for now. God bless you! Thank you for reading this.
Lots of hugs,
Carlos Andy Estiven Godinez Mijangos
