I hope you are in good health together with your loved ones. My name is Micaela Hernandez Barrera and I feel so happy to greet you. I am seventeen years old and I am attending school. I am in the fourth grade at school and I am receiving classes every Tuesday and Thursday. I do my homework and I deliver it every week. It has been difficult for me to study because the teachers are not teaching us the basics. My father is working as a farmer and as a day laborer. He covers the home expenses. My mother does the household chores and takes care of us. The covid-19 situation affected many families, and we were affected economically. Fortunately, we received groceries from the school and from the feeding program, and we could survive.
We are grateful to God because thanks to him we have not lacked food. It was a great blessing and a great help for us to receive the groceries bags from LW. We are so thankful to you for helping us because it is a great joy to receive your blessings. Fortunately, we are healthy and we have not gotten sick from the current virus. I want to tell you that one of the AAC-team called my older sister and she was the one who gave this information about me; it was by phone due to the pandemic. We attend Catholic Church and we receive two hours of services every Monday. I say goodbye to you for now with much love.
