First, thank you so much for taking the time to read my information. My name is Julio, and it is a blessing to greet you through this letter. I want you to know that my family and I attend the Quadrangular Church. We usually have services on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays. We are doing our best to increase our love and faith. My father, Rogelio Shoc, is 36 years old. He is a healthy carpenter who strives a lot for our family. My mother also works hard on a flower farm to help with the expenses at home. Her name is Maria Jacinto. She is 30 years old, and her health is in good condition. About me, let me tell you that I am a healthy boy. I am twelve years old and my biggest dream is to become an architect. Besides that, I also would like to learn how to speak English. I am in sixth grade and I prefer to receive face-to-face classes.
Thanks to that method, learning is easier. The summer season is my favorite; I enjoy that relaxing time by staying outside of our home. I love drinking coffee and playing soccer. My birthday will be in November. I love spending it with my family. They usually invite our relatives to celebrate my day by eating a delicious dinner and cake. To end this letter, I want you to know that a teacher of the evangelism team spoke with me to collect my last news for you. He also shared the gospel and encouraged my family and me to go ahead. The feeding program is an important project because it has helped us with food and vitamins. I say goodbye to you for now, but I want to encourage you to continue blessing many children like me. I am sure the Lord will reward you greatly for it.
With much love,
Julio Rogelio Shoc Jacinto
