Hello! My name is Jonela Jolla. I am 14 years old and my birthday is on April 3rd. I am doing well and enjoy good health. My favorite color is black and I choose my dresses to be in this color. My future dream is to become a teacher. I started the ninth grade of school on September and am studying hard, doing my maximum to earn good grades in the subjects that we take from the teachers. At the end of this school year, I will receive the premature certificate that gives to me the right to attend the high school for three more years. I am happy that we go physically in school and don’t have to take the lessons online. Because of the pandemic, we are wearing masks and respect the distancing. I like sports and right after I finish school, I get together with my friends so that I can play volleyball. I also enjoy running. I have a younger sister and I care for her so that I can be help to my mother, especially when she has had to do the gardening.
My family and I live in Rodokal. Our house offers appropriated living conditions to us. I have five persons in my family. My father’s name is Jonuz and my mother’s name is Nevila.I have two sisters. Jonilda is at present 10 years old and Emili is six months old, the baby of our family. My father is working in Greece. He does there different jobs, as offered to him. He works in construction for some months and for the other months he works in agriculture. My father stays in Greece for nine months and we miss him greatly, but we are happy that he is providing for us all through his jobs there. My mother does the housekeeping and some gardening. During this year, she hasn’t done much gardening or work in the land because she is needed to care for Emili, the baby of our family. The welfare of my family is well, even though, we are financially challenged. My father is the only one working to provide for us. Living in the village, our needs are many. I am very thankful that I am benefiting help and care from the sponsorship programme of Adopt a Child.
The Living Water Adopt a Child church in Rodokal has six meetings going on, in each day of the week. Their church service is on Saturday and they have Bible classes for the children every Monday and Wednesday. Besides the Bible classes for children they have also Bible studies for ladies and youth. Each child who is registered in the programme receives a package containing groceries as flour, pasta, oil, etc. We are very thankful to you for all your care and support by sponsoring a child.
