Hello! I hope everything is running well in your life. My name is Leydi Marisol Nohemi De La Cruz Ruiz, and I am 8 years old. I am in 2nd grade this year, and I am attending school the whole week. I am doing a good job at school. I play with my neighbors and friends in my free time. I enjoy the feeding program’s lunches, and I am happy it opened its doors again. I walk for 20 minutes to arrive to the program. My father is working as a “cargador” in the city, and he comes to visit us every three months. He keeps in touch with us and sends money for our needs. My mother dedicates her time to the family and home. We usually buy some snack to share time as a family. We do not have the custom to celebrate Christmas.
We attend Christian Life Church, and it is located 20 minutes from our house. We continued having services in spite of the pandemic, but the doors stayed all the time. We live in our own house, and it has two rooms and one kitchen. The house is made of adobe with a tin sheet roof and dirt floor. We have electricity and get the water from a well. We were economically affected by the current situation because there was not much work for my father. I would like to ask you to pray for us since we are now in need of groceries. My family and I are healthy, and I am grateful to God for that. I tell you that my mother helped me to give this information to an Evangelism teacher. I hope to hear from you soon.
In Jesus name
Leydi Marisol Nohemi De La Cruz Ruiz
