Letter From the Family: 

My name is Maria Guadalupe Vargas Candido, 

First of all I wanted to thank this great, beautiful mission for all that you do for all of the families with need, like us. It fills us with hope and happiness. Thank you for being who you are. May God bless everyone of you all. 

I am Guadalupe and I have two kids, the older is 15 years old and the younger is 12 years old. My husband abandoned us for someone else the 2nd of April in 2010. Since then we haven't really known much about him. Sometimes he talks to my boys but he has never really wanted to help us. Being a single mother is very difficult and it can be sad because I don't make very much money either.

My salary is sometimes not enough for our expenses and even less for a house. It is very expensive and so I took my kids to live in my parent's house. During the week I sell nopal in the streets. And on my days off I clean houses. But, that wasn't enough so I had to take my son Raul out of middle school; he only had 3 month to go before he was going to graduate. But, we didn't have money for the rent and land and to pay for his school expenses. 

So with all of this we are asking you  all for help. We have such a big need and we hope that you can help us. Thank you so much for your attention and interest in our situation. Thank you so much!
