I will start by giving you thanks for taking the time to read my update. I walk for forty minutes to arrive to the feeding program. I am Ignacia Aura Marina but everybody affectionately calls me Aura. I am 11 years old and I will have my birthday in September. I take classes in my village and I am a fifth-grade student. My school is about twenty minutes away from my home. I love Physical Education but Mathematics is a little difficult for me. Since my school is closed for Covid-19, I am just at home helping with the housework and playing.
The people who live in the house are my mother and me. My father abandoned us some time ago and does not have communication with us nor help us financially. My mother´s duties are taking care of us and doing the housework. She coves our expenses by washing clothes for others. We are members of the Evangelical Church. 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!
