My Story

Hello! I greet you in the name of Jesus, and I hope you have a successful day.  I want to share with you some news about my family and me. I am Sabino Gehovany de la Cruz de la Cruz.  I am 12 years old, but I will turn 13 in August. At the moment, we continue attending the Catholic Church every Tuesday. We are grateful to the LW evangelism team who shared the Gospel with my family and for their encouraging words. This year I am in 4th grade at school. I am receiving face-to-face classes every day and I learn a lot. My parents strive to support my sister and me at school in spite they do not have a stable job. Nowadays, school fees are expensive and sometimes it is difficult to cover all expenses. My native language is the Quiche Mayan dialect, so I would like to learn Spanish and improve my communication with people. My dream is to travel to the coast and look for a job and be able to help my family. My favorite celebration of the year is Christmas because I enjoy eating “tamales” (a typical dish). I love soft drinks. Among sports, I prefer soccer. What I like about my birthday is that my mother buys me a cake. Thank God, all my family and I are in good health.

My mother`s name is Rosa de la Cruz de la Cruz. She is 27 years old. Currently, she weaves typical bedding, and she continues raising hens and turkeys to sell and get some income.  My father`s name is Santos Calachij Garcia. He is 29 years old. Currently, he lives in the United States and he earns a living by working on a farm. We grow corn, black beans, and herbs for the family`s consumption. As a humble family, our current needs are corn, groceries, and clothes. Thank you to Living Water because I receive the meals, medical and dental attention, and spiritual support. I want to say thank you for the Christmas gift that I receive at year´s end. Sending all my love to you. Every blessing to you!

Warm regards,

Sabino Gehovany de la Cruz de la Cruz
