First Letter from Nikko!

First letters are always so exciting, aren't they?

This letter was written on June 30th, so it took just under three months to get to me. Not bad, considering it came all the way from the Philippines!


Dear Sponsor,

First of all, I would like to greet you and your family. As for me here, I'm fine in God's grace. 

We have lots of activities here in church. We had camp, but I was not able to join because I help my uncle in selling second hand clothing. On our Mother's Day we were making letters for our mother. We had our recognition day where we can eat all you can and I received award in character. 

With regards to my studies, I'm doing good and had many lessons learned. I got also new friends. You there, what are you doing? What is your families plans and developments? 

I'm hoping that you'll help me pray for my mother's protection and good health. More blessings to come. 

God Bless,

Memory Verse: Galations 6:14 "May I never boast except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world." 



  1. Yes, first letters are so exciting!!! And what a great one from Nikko! While it's sad that he missed camp, it's neat to read that his uncle sells second-hand clothing. It sounds like he's going to be a great writer! Our boy from the Philippines is one of our best correspondents...he writes the sweetest, most informative letters and they're usually 1-2 pages full!!

    1. It was cool because I actually learned that from his Compassion's profile. Nikko is listed as living with his uncle, who is employed as a seller in the market. Then below that, it says that he sells second hand clothing. I love the little extra information like that.
