My Story

Hello! It is a great pleasure to greet you through this letter. I am Melvin Leonardo Hernandez Lopez, and I am nine years old. I am studying in the third grade at school. I am receiving study guides to work at home, and my mother goes to pick them up every fifteen days. I put internet data on the cellphone because I have to use WhatsApp. Thank God, the lack of face-to-face classes has not been difficult for me. I missed attending the feeding program and the food, but fortunately, the program is open again, and I walk about fifteen minutes to arrive. My father is supplying our needs by working as a mason in our town while my mother works selling fruits. On weekends, we share good time as a family. For Christmas, we stay at home and celebrate it in our family.

We attend faithfully Catholic Church, and it is located about fifteen minutes from our house. Our church was closed for a time due to the pandemic which affected us, but thank God, we are attending it again. We live in a rented house which is made of tin sheet and dirt floor. We have one room, and we cook in the same room. We have running water and electricity. We would like to fix the floor because it is dirt. I ask for your prayers for my family so that God can provide our needs. The pandemic affected us because we did not have much money and work, but fortunately, we are stable now. Thank God, we are in good health. We received groceries from the feeding program. and it was a great help for us. My grandmother gave this information about me. I send you many hugs and kisses. Many blessings!

With much love,

Melvin Leonardo Hernandez Lopez
