My Story

Hello! My name is Elda Karina Cac Mendez, and I am happy to tell you about my life through this letter. I am 15 years old and I am in eighth grade this year. I go to bring my study guides and homework to school once a week, and I send my homework to the teachers through Whatsapp every week. It has been a little difficult to study with this method because my parents do not have enough resources to buy me internet plans every day. My father is the one who covers the home expenses working as a mason from Monday to Sunday. My mother works hard at home and looks after her domestic animals. Due to the pandemic, my father was unemployed for about two months and it was a hard time for us; fortunately, we received support from the feeding program and school.

God is good and faithful with us because He has been providing us with health, food and work in these difficult times. We received grocery bags from Living Water and they were a great blessing for the whole family. I am very grateful to the Ministry for being a source of blessing to my family. Thank God, none of my family has gotten Covid-19. We are members of Full Gospel Church and we have services on Tuesday and Friday; the services last two hours. Lastly, I want to tell you that my father helped me to give this information by phone to a LW Evangelism teacher. The staff did not meet us personally because they are avoiding physical contact as much as possible since they want to protect us from the current virus. I thank you for taking the time to read my letter.

With much love

Elda Karina Cac Mendez
