One letter was from my Celeste in Honduras. I sponsored her on June 5th. So, a little over three months to receive her first letter.
The other letter was from Yonas in Ethiopia. I sponsored him on July 22nd, so it only took 6-7 weeks to receive his first letter. Wow.
Both letters were the typical About Me intro letters, but I still love them. Tons of information in one fell swoop! Here are the letters:
