My Story

Hello,

I would like first of all to thank you for taking the time to read my update. I tell you that I walk for thirty minutes to arrive to the feeding program. I am Ericson Manuel but everybody affectionately calls me Junior. I am 4 years old and I will have my birthday in August. I take classes in my village and I am a kindergarten student. My school is about ten minutes away from my home. I love drawing and coloring. I play toy cars and soccer with my siblings in my free time.

The people who live in the house are my parents, siblings and me. My mother’s duties are taking care of us and doing the housework, and my father’s job consists of building houses. Thank God, the pandemic has not affected my father’s work. We are members of a church called Prince of Peace but it is closed for now. 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 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!

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.
