Question:

Who does Lencho have complete faith in? Which sentences in the story tell you this?

Answer:

Lencho had faith in God. The sentences in the story that show this are as follows.

  • “All through the night, Lencho thought only of his one hope: the help of God, whose eyes, as he had been instructed, see everything, even what is deep in one’s conscience.”
  • “God”, he wrote, “if you don’t help me, my family and I will go hungry this year.” I need a hundred pesos to sow my field again and to live until the crop comes because of the hailstorm ........................”
  • “God could not have made a mistake, nor could he have denied Lencho what he had requested.”
  • “God: of the money that I asked for, only seventy pesos reached me. Send me the rest, since I need it very much. But don’t send it to me through the mail because the post office employees are a bunch of crooks.”
