I hope this letter finds you in good health. My name is Sergio Rodrigo Jacinto Pachel, and I am 13 years old. I am in 7th grade this year, and I go to bring my study guides to school every 15 days. It has not been easy to study with this method because I do not have an extensive explanation of the lessons. We do not have internet at home, so we have to buy an internet plan on the phone when necessary. I help in a bakery shop near my house, and I receive some money for doing it. I was missing the feeding program’s food and Bible classes, but I am happy now because it has opened its doors again. I walk for 10 minutes to arrive to the program. My father works as a carpenter in a nearby town while my mother dedicates her time to the family and home.
We spend time as a family on Sundays, and we usually go to play to the park. We celebrated Christmas with my grandmother, and we ate “tamales”. At the moment, we are not attending a church. We live in our own house which has two rooms including the kitchen. Our house is made of tin sheets and concrete blocks with a tin sheet roof and concrete floor; it has running water and electricity. I am grateful to God because my family and I are in good health. At the beginning of this pandemic, our incomes were low, and we survived thanks to my mother who found a job. Fortunately, this situation changed, and we are fine now. My mother helped me to give this information to one of the Evangelism teachers to tell you about my life.
