My Story

Chixocol, where your child lives, is a very small village nestled in a mountain valley in the state of Quiché, Guatemala. Life in this state is very difficult. Most families live in one-room adobe houses with dirt floors and a small, attached kitchen. The extremely poor live in houses made of corn stalks. In the past few years electricity and water have become available to most people in the area - however, indoor plumbing is very rare. Most of the families are farmers or shepherds and live off the fruits of their labors. Public education is available for those who can afford it and consider it of value.  Life in Quiché is always a challenge.

Hello! My name is Gregoria Marleny Mucia Perez, and I want to share with you a little about my life. I was born on April 24, 2018, so I am 5 years old now. I am in good health, and I am in pre-kinder this year. In my free time, I enjoy playing with my dolls. My favorite color is pink, and I love cats. What I like to eat the most is fried chicken. I have three brothers and one sister; two of them are registered at the feeding program too. My father, Manuel Mucia Gutierrez, makes baskets and digs out sand from the river to sell. My mother, Tomasa Perez Rodriguez, also makes baskets to sell and help with the income. My family and I are attending the Catholic Church.

We live in our own house, and it has three rooms and a separate kitchen. The house is made of adobe with a tin sheet roof and dirt floor. Thankfully, we have running water and electricity services; my dad pays these bills. We have hens as domestic animals. We are a humble family, and our frequent needs are groceries and clothes. I walk for 15 minutes to arrive at the feeding program and enjoy a delicious lunch. I tell you that my mom helped me to give this information to a LW Evangelism teacher, and I am happy to be part of Living Water. I end this small letter hoping you find it interesting.

Many blessings
