My Story

Hello, I am Ethan Jared and I am glad to greet you. Let me tell you that I am 7 years old and I live with my mother and siblings. Thankfully, we are all healthy at home, but we also feel sad after the loss of my father. He passed away in January of this year and it has been something really hard for us to face. My mother is now our only supporter and she struggles to earn some money by polling people. I started 1st grade this year, but due to the pandemic, I am studying through work guides. I also have to turn in my homework at school every 15 days. Honestly, I would like to attend school because I miss sharing time with my friends. I would like to ask for your prayers for my family because we are not members of any church at the moment. Only two of us are attending some meetings in a house to learn about Jesus. Nevertheless, we have experienced God´s faithfulness in our lives because He never left us without food on our table. In addition, He helped us to continue forward little by little despite the economic problems. Living Water has also contributed with my family by sending us groceries which came just in time. We are very grateful for all the love. May God reward your work and efforts with many blessings! Finally, I want you to know that the LW teachers called my mother and asked about this information to share with you. We cannot meet at the feeding program because it is still closed for the coronavirus. For that reason this interview was by telephone. See you!

Best wishes,

Ethann Jared Barahona Soto
