My name is Ana Florinda Marleny. This year I turn 12 years old and I live with my mother and siblings. I attend 4th grade and I am receiving face-to-face classes on Monday and Thursday at school. I give my homework to my teacher when I attend classes. Fortunately, I am doing well in my studies because my teacher is very kind and helps me if I have some doubt. I do not have my father´s support because he abandoned us years ago. My mother is the one who strives to supply our family needs; she is a weaver and raises domestic animals for selling.
Thank God, the covid-19 pandemic did not affect us because my mother could continue with the selling of the typical clothes. Moreover, we received support from my school and our church. We want to give thanks to Living Water / Adopt A Child who has been blessed us with grocery bags. It is a great blessing to be part of the program. My mother is deeply thankful to you and LW for the help because she could prepare the meals for us. So, my mother prays to God so that He pours out many blessings on each area of your life. Thank God, my family and I are healthy and nobody has been infected with covid-19 so far. We attend Church of Christ on Tuesday. I want to let you know that an evangelism teacher of LW called my mother, Candelaria Simaj by phone to get this updated information since the feeding program is still closed due to the pandemic. I say good-bye to you for now. Many blessings to you!
Hugs and much love,
Ana Florinda Marleny Simaj Garcia
