My name is Mathias Isaac Coro Monroy, and I am happy to greet you through this. I am seven years old. This year I am in first grade, and taking face-to-face classes twice per week. In those days, I hand in my homework assigned through study guides. Learning was not difficult to me, because the teacher gave instructions in a good way, so it was easy for me to learn. To earn a living, my dad is paid to drive a motorcycle to send things. My mom is a Municipal police officer, so they both work to provide for my family economically. Whenever we can, we go to the park or to for a walk. On Christmas, my family and I got together with some relatives, so we celebrated it by eating tamales and fruit punch.
We are attending Mount Hebron Church that is located five minutes away from home. The time it was closed due to the pandemic, we felt sad, for we could not get together with our brethren, so we prayed at home. The two-room house we live in, is ours. It has separate kitchen, and it is made of cement block, tin sheet roof and ceramic floor. It does have electricity and running water. The house condition is good. God has been faithful with us during the pandemic. My parents kept their jobs, so we had the necessary at home. As food supplies is a basic need at home, I thank for the grocery bags we received from the feeding program. It was all a great blessing. May God pay you back for that! As school supplies is also a basic need at home, I would appreciate your prayers for us to not have lack of that. Thank you for your prayers. My family and I are all doing well, thankfully. I also hope you and your family are too. To finish, I want you to know, my mom provided updated information about me, in person, to one member from the Evangelism team, who visited us at home, for you to get news from me. I say good bye to you for now. God bless you!
Lots of hugs,
Mathias Isaac Coro Monroy
