I want to start with a dear first letter. I got my very first letter from my Indian princess, Sadiya. This is a wonderful letter. Typical first letter in the aspects of her listing her family and favorites, but then the message to me is just wonderful. She wrote the first half (family and favorites) herself, in English! The message to me was written by a tutor. Here we go:
Hello, I am: Sadiya
Mother's Name: Mrs. R
Father's Name: M.
Brothers: Vasim, Simbar, Shakil
Favorite Color: Yellow
Favorite Game: Rope Jump
Favorite Food: Rice and Potatoes
Best Friend: Preeti (What a great name!)
My House is Made of: Bricks
Dear Sponsor Kayla,
Greetings to you in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, on behalf of Sadiya. She is very happy by knowing that she got sponsorship. The family of her are so happy to know that you have chosen her to sponsorship. They extend their heartful thank for your kindly nature. She is pretty and cool natured, loving girl. She attends all the activities which conducted here and very regular and punctual too. She wanted to know more about you for the best relation. She is studying in the school, most probably she is going to appear at her first exam in September. Please to pray for her study and family. They may know God and be blessed.
I am so excited to have a cool natured, loving, punctual girl in my life. I just know we're going to build a great relationship!
This next letter is my absolute favorite. It's from my love, Kalpesh. I sent him $25 in February for his birthday. He received the money in May. This letter tells me what he bought with the money and the things he says give me goosebumps and just make me love him even more. I'm going to put my favorite sentence in bold because it's another sentence that sums up why I sponsor children.
I bought two pairs of jeans, a t-shirt, innerwear, and hankercheif as my birthday gift. I receive these in the month of May, 2012.
I like it very much, because few months before my dad is passed away and my mom is only bread winner and we are four siblings, so I can't expect more from my mom. We are living happily with which we have.
But God is great. Through you, He has blessed me.
Praise the Lord and thank you very much for your love and support for me and my family. Wishing you may have good health and God bless you.
With Lots of Love,
Love, Love, Love, Love, Love.
