My Story

This is Joel Isaias Garay Gutierrez, and I am writing this to update my 2023 information. First, I will tell you about my family. We are now members of House of Faith Church. We are a humble family, and our greatest needs are school supplies, clothes and shoes. My mother’s name is Yohasca. She is 43 years old, and she is in good health too. My brother’s name is Josue, and he is 18 years old. He works as an assistant in a printing house, and he is the one who covers our expenses. Living Water is very important in my life, and I have been blessed in a big way.

Now let me tell you a little about myself. I am 14 years old, and I am healthy. I am repeating 7th grade, and I am happy to receive face-to-face classes because the teaching is better. It has been difficult for my mother to cover my school expenses due to our low resources. I want to become a criminologist when I am older, and I would like to learn English someday. My favorite celebration is Christmas because I like all the ornaments. I eat a cake with my mother and brother for my birthday. I prefer doing exercise, and I love drinking natural juices. I hope to hear from you soon.

All the best

Joel Isaias Garay Gutierrez
