I am so happy to have heard from my lovely boy, Kalpesh. Last year, I heard from him multiple times a month and this year, I heard from him in January, and then nothing until today. I was so happy to get a letter from him that literally jumped up and down and squealed in my apartment. It's a good thing that I get home from work before anybody else in my building, haha.
Here's the letter:
Dearest Friend Kayla ,
Greetings to you in the sweet name of Lord Jesus Christ from me and my family members in this wonderful new year. Once again, I am very glad to write this letter to you. First of all, praise the Lord and thanks to him for this wonderful opportunity. Also, I am very glad to receive your letters, stickers of cars, pictures of Big Ben and Grand Canyon, your photograph, picture of tiger, and cross stickers. Also, the picture of Jesus Christ's birth. One thing I forgot about was our anniversary of our friendship. Happy friendship anniversary to you to. (The one year anniversary of writing to Kalpesh was in December). I also wish you a happy and prosperous new year. Thank you so much for your encouraging words. I promise I will do everything without complaining and I will memorize the verse with you. (I shared Philippians 2:14 with him).
Here, I am trying to answer your questions. I go to school by walking. My favorite subject is Marathi. I struggle with English at school. I spend 6 hours a day at school. My best friend is Kalpesh at school (Guess Kalpesh is a common name!) There are 52 children in my class. My class teacher's name is Mrs. Vidya. My house is made up with wood, sticks, and mud. I am staying iwth my uncle, aunt, and cousin siblings. Most people here are daily wage workers. I like to learn about Jesus at the project. There are 163 children registered at the project. I like to know more about baseball. (I shared with him about a baseball game I went to).
Thank you so much for doing everything for me. Once again, wish you very happy and prosperous new year and may God help you in your job and give you good health.
With Lots of Love,
