My Story

Hello! Let me begin by thanking you for taking the time to read my update. I want to tell you that I walk for fifteen minutes to arrive to the feeding program. I am Teresa Leticia but everybody affectionately calls me Teresita. I am 5 years old and I had my birthday in May. I take classes in my village and I am a third-grade student. My school is about twenty minutes away from my home. I love Expression Arts but “Aprestamiento” (it is a subject where the child learns to develop the skills and abilities) is a little difficult for me. Currently I am doing homework at home. After that I enjoy playing dolls and toy dishes.

The people who live in the house are my parents, a brother and me. My father works as a day laborer. He used to travel to cut sugar cane on the coast. Lately it has been really hard to find a job. Thank God, my father has a job. He is not earning very much but it is enough to cover our basic needs. My mother´s duties are taking care of us and doing the housework. Moreover, she used to weave typical clothes for selling but she stopped for now because the sales are doing really badly due to the pandemic. My family and I are members of Prince of Peace Church, and for now we pray at home. 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.

God bless you!

A-A-C 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.
