A First Letter from Solomon!

It's been over 5 months since I first started corresponding with little Solomon in India. I always thought that perhaps his first letter got lost in the mail, especially since he transferred to a new project during that time period. Today, I got a letter from him and it was one of new template letters, so I think that his first letter is definitely lost somewhere.

But, today's letter was great! I'll share the template part first and then I'll share the letter part.


My Friends
Bharat and Bishal are my friends.
My friends and I like to: play Kabaddi game
My best friend is: Bishal
I met my best friend at: School
I like my best friend because he: is good to me and plays with me.
Dear Kayla,
Greetings to you in Jesus name. Since Solomon is a small boy, I am project staff Susan writing this letter on behalf of him. He is asking you How are you? Solomon and his family are doing well by God's grace. He is very happy to receive your 5 letters, scripture verses, and photo of snow, which he liked it very much. When he grows up he wants to be a policeman. His favorite color is yellow. He likes to learn math (addition sums). His father is a coolie (day laborer) and mother works as maidservant. Here it does not snow. Right now here the season is summer season and the weather is hot in the morning and at night we get a cool breeze. We come outside and enjoy the weather. He has one elder brother, one elder sister, and younger sister. He and his family convey their love and blessings to you. He and his family are praying for you and for your family. Thanking you.

  1. Wow! I love how informative this letter is!! I haven't seen the "My Friends" template yet--what a neat idea! And how fun to learn that he wants to be a policeman. I also like how he shared about his family and what his parents do for jobs!
