I enjoyed reading this story!
I really enjoyed your story!It reminds me of mission trips I used to take to Baja California with my church when I was a teen. On one trip, a little girl in the village especially befriended me too and taught me the song "Jesus Loves Me" in Spanish.

Your main character does not come across as bratty, though (guess you know who's writing this!)--only as having a fairly normal reaction to the circumstances she's in. Great descriptions!

By the way, "barrio" has an "i" in it.

A very nice and touching story. So glad you shared this testimony. Keep writing!
