My Story

I am glad to greet you through this. I am Gladys Elizabeth Rodriguez de la Cruz, and I am ten years old. This year I am in third grade, and I am receiving face-to-face classes at school from Monday to Friday. I hand in my schoolwork to the teacher by myself. Thankfully, I have made good progress in my studies. In my free time, I help my mom with the household work. I really missed the lunches and activities that took place in the feeding program during the time it was closed due to the pandemic. It is open again, thank God, so I get there in ten minutes by walking. My father lives with us, and he works in the field and supports us financially. My mom stays home, and she likes to raise domestic animals to sell them. Sometimes we get something to eat, or we just talk, play, and laugh.

We celebrated Christmas, and we prepared tamales and fruit punch. Currently, my family and I attend Mehodist Church that is located twenty minutes from home by walking. At the time the church was closed due to the pandemic, we felt distressed, but now our services are constant. We live at my maternal grandparents’ house, but my father is the one who supports the household expenses. There are three rooms and a separate kitchen. The house is made of adobe, the roof of tin sheets and the floor of dirt and concrete. It has running water and electricity. The house is in good condition. The pandemic affected my dad's work because sometimes he only worked twice a week. Since food supplies such as corn are a great need at home, I thank the feeding program for the grocery bags we received. It was all a great help and sustenance for my family and me. Thank you very much. Thank God, my family and I are all doing well, at the moment. To finish, I want you to know that mom gave this information to an Evangelism team member to share with you my last news. I appreciate your time reading this. I hope to hear from you soon.

Lots of affection,

Gladys Elizabeth Rodriguez de la Cruz
