Hello! My name is Kristina Hoxholli. I am 17 years old and my birthday is on July 23rd. I am in good health. My future dream is to be a psychologist so that I can better serve to the needs of the children in schools. I am happy that we have this subject in our schools to study and this is my favorite one. I frequent the third grade high school and am doing well with the lessons. I am trying my best to study hard, especially during these months because at the end of the school year, I will go through four very important exams. After these exams, I will receive the graduation diploma from the high school. Soon, I will finish school and I will be considered a matured girl. I am not sure what my future will be like and what I will do after I finish school, but I know that while I will be inside my house, I will help my grandmother with cooking, washing dishes and cleaning the house. There are no activities for the youth here in our village and the activities of the church of Katjel are the only ones going, I am very happy that I can join this church and I can take part in the youth Bible studies. After the Bible study, we all as youth get together to fellowship.
I live in Kotodesh together with my grandparents. I don’t know who my father is and have never met him. My mother has also not cared for me and she brought me over to be raised from my grandparents. So I am a child without parenting care. Both my grandparents are taking good care for me and I am now a matured girl, being raised by them. The house of my grandparents where I live, offers appropriated living conditions. My grandparents land but the work in agriculture doesn’t bring much income and the products we gain by planting are not enough. My parents have planted during this year what is used as food for animals. We raise a cow. The animals are beneficial for products as milk, butter, cheese and my grandfather is able to sell the calf that is delivered every year. My grandmother planted our garden just recently. She planted beans, onions, tomatoes, peppers and other vegetables that we consume. My grandparents have always cared for me and even that they are poor they have given all for me. I am thankful to them. I am thankful also to the sponsorship programme for registering me and for the help and care that I will start to benefit.
The Living Water Adopt a Child church in Kotodesh meets on Saturdays for the service. During the days of the week there are Bible studies in small groups for ladies, teens and Bible classes dedicated to smaller children. The teens and children, after they study the Bible and pray altogether, spend time to play outside in the sport-field of the church centre. All the children who frequent the programme receive every six weeks a package of food. They come to take this package together with one of their parents. A free dental care is also offered to the sponsored children. Thank you for your care and support. God bless you richly as you are blessing each child spiritually and physically.
