My Story

I greet you affectionately through this, and I hope you and your lovely family is doing great! Praise the Lord my family and I attend a Christian Church; we go on Saturdays. We have Jesus in our hearts, and we know that he is our Lord and Savior. Thanks to God, we are in good health. My mother is Isabela Lopez Toj, and she is 39 years old. She stays busy with the duties at home, and she also raises hens to sell and get some money. My father is Camilo Ruiz Riz, and he is 43 years old. He earns a living by making bricks and tiles in the tile factory; he supplies the family´s needs. We do not have land to grow anything, so we have to buy corn for our consumption.

I am Juan Antony Ruiz Lopez, and I am 11 years old. I am in third grade; I receive classes at school and my learning is going well now. This year was hard for my parents to register me at school because they had to buy uniforms, and it was so expensive. I speak Spanish as my native language and have some knowledge of the K'iche´ Mayan dialect. However, I would like to improve and speak it. I like sodas, especially Coca-Cola which is my favorite one. The sport I like the most is football. I wish to work in a tile factory and help my family with the income. I like firecrackers; I light some of them at Christmas time. At home, we do not celebrate our birthdays because of limited resources. Being part of Living Water is a great support for me because I receive tasty meals and medical care in the clinics which is so helpful for me and my family. My family needs groceries and corn. Sending many hugs. Many and abundant blessings!

Lots of love,

Juan Antony Ruiz Lopez
