My Story

I am so glad to greet you through this letter. I am Jose Waldemar again, and I hope you are doing well and blessed. I am an 11-year-old boy. I am repeating 3rd grade, and I am receiving classes at school all week. I am doing my best to move ahead with my studies, but I find it very hard to learn and remember the lessons to do my homework at home. After I finish doing my homework, I help with some work at home. Let me tell you I missed attending the feeding program while it was closed for the pandemic restrictions; what I missed the most was the fried chicken. Thankfully, the program is open again, and I take 10 minutes to arrive there. My mother does the chores at home and takes care of the family. My father continues working in the United States; he faithfully calls and sends us money to cover our home needs. We attend Church of Christ, and it is located about 5 minutes from home. We do not celebrate Christmas due to our doctrine. In the middle of the difficult times of the pandemic, we continued with the services at church.

We like to spend time as a family; sometimes, we buy snacks and soda to share in the afternoon. We own the house in which we live; there is one room made of adobe and tin sheets roof with a dirt floor. The kitchen is apart. We have running water but not electricity, so we use candles to get light at night. The house condition is good for now. Thanks to God, we were not affected by the pandemic since my father never ran out of work and could sustain us economically. Moreover, we received food parcels from Living Water which was a great blessing and help to us. At the moment, our main need at home is groceries. Finally, I want to let you know that the LW team called us and asked for this updated information, so my mother provided it to them over the phone. I send many hugs hoping to receive news from you soon. Many blessings on you!

Lots of love,

Jose Waldemar De la Cruz Morente
