Letter from Karanja

I got my 2nd letter from Karanja, in Kenya, today. I last heard from him on March 30th, so it hasn't even been two months. I hope this is a sign of a really regular writer.


Dear Kayla,

How are you? I hope you are all fine together with your family. How is work?

I want to tell you that I am still going on with my work here at school. I'm now remaining with two years in grade 8. (I'm not sure what this means, but perhaps he was held back in 8th grade?) I pray I do well. Pray for me.

I want you to know that I have spiritually grown. I go to church every Sunday and I'm in Sunday school. Our Sunday school teacher is called Moses. He teaches us songs and memory verses. John 3:16 says "For God so love the world that the gave his only begotten son, that whoever believes in him should not perish, but have everlasting life."

I usually pray for you. Please pray for me to be a good boy (He wrote the word "bug" and his tutor corrected it. Funny!) I wish you a happy year. Goodbye.




  1. It sounds like Karanja's going to be a good letter writer!! I love how he said that he has "spiritually grown" and I loved the verse he shared with you. It's also so cute that he wants you to pray for him to be a "good bug"! What a cute misspelling!!

    1. I agree. His two letters have been really great. I can't wait to hear more from him.
