Before anything else I would like to express to you my gratitude for being my sponsor and blessing me through Living Water. I walk for twenty-five minutes to arrive to the feeding program. I am Katerine Alejandra. I am 10 years old and I will have my birthday in August. I take classes in my village and I am a fifth-grade student. My school is about fifteen minutes away from my home. I love Language but Mathematics is a little difficult for me. At the moment, we are receiving study guides to do our homework. I watch TV and play in my free time.
The people who live in the house are my mother, siblings and me. My mother is a street vendor, but due to the pandemic, there are days that she does not sell much. We have received groceries at school and at the feeding program and they have helped us a lot. We are not attending Church. I am grateful to God because we all are in good health. In spite of the hard health situation that we are currently facing in our country, our Lord has been taking care of us. We are praying for your family and for all the world. We trust in our Lord's mercy and that He will put His healing hands over all people who are suffering during this pandemic. I would like to receive a letter from you and have the opportunity to share our life experiences with each other.
Thinking of you!
Katerine Alejandra Mijangos Lopez
AAC NOTE: After the first COVID-19 case was confirmed in our country (March 13, 2020), our President ordered the closure of all the schools in order to prevent children becoming affected by this virus. We do not know when the schools will open again. However, most of the schools are assigning homework to their students to cover the content for the current school year. As a team, we are praying that God takes control of this situation soon so that we may continue on with our lives.
