First Letter from Sandesh

I was so excited to open my mailbox today and see a first letter from the wonderful boy that is sponsored by the wonderful communities of bloggers and O.Cers. Isn't a first letter so great?!

Here's his first letter:

Dear Sponsor,
I am Sandesh Sunil. My father's name is Sunil. In my family are 5 members. My father is worker and my mother is housewife. My project name is Astha Child Development Center, IN-866. Our center to my staying distance is 1 km. My community is Shantipur in Maharashtra, India. These communities belongs to slum area. In this area there are a lot of Christian communities staying together. Thank you!
Your Loving Child,
I am sad to hear that he lives in a slum area, but I am very happy that he lives in an area with many other Christians. It's nice to have religious support from your neighbors.
After reading this letter, if you feel led to donate towards his sponsorship, you can do so using the Chip-In box at the top-right of my blog. The current funds that have been donated will run out in April. I would love to see him continued to be supported by this wonderful online community. 


  1. After reading this post, I felt God moving me to send in a month's worth of sponsorship for Sandesh. I hope it helps. :)

    1. Wow! Thank you so much, Emily. I appreciate it so much.

  2. Congrats on your first letter! How exciting :)
