A Great Letter from Solomon

Wow, it's only the 5th day of November and today, I received my 3rd letter of the month! It's been nice seeing a cream colored envelope in the mail everyday. :)

Today, I received a letter from my boy Solomon, from India. A few months ago, Solomon changed projects. During that time of transition, I didn't hear from him at all, presumably while he settled into his new project. Now, I am getting letters far more regularly.

This letter was written on September 4th, so it only took two months to get to me. The front is the "Festivals and Holidays" template. On the back, there is a message from Solomon.


1. August 15th is our country's Independence Day

2. My favorite festival is Christmas

3. My favorite food to eat during festival celebrations is Chicken Biriyani 

4. I love to wear shirts and pants during festival celebrations

5. During holidays, I like to attend Vacation Bible School/Summer Camps

Dear Sponsor, 

Greetings to you in Jesus's name. How are you? I am Mrs. Umakumar, project staff, writing to you on behalf of Solomon. He and his family are doing well. Thank you very much for nice stickers, puzzle, picture of dog & cat. He received all the letters. I explained in details, word by word, all the letters to him. I will write some of the answers to your questions about the project and how he spends time there. 1. In the spiritual area - bible stories and memory verses. 2. Physically, parts of the body. 3. Cognitive - taught about drawing skill. 4. Socially, gift awareness (??) . He is enjoying having good food and the activities. In school, he will go to school at 8:30 a.m by van. He will learn all subjects taught in class and he will be back to home at 3:30 p.m. Remaining answers will be sent in next letter. Please pray for him. He will pray for you. 



  1. Another letter! It is so nice and informative too. I am doing the Snoopy Happy Dance for you. You know I will be stalking the mailman hoping for a letter from Benny. Ha-ha

  2. That's so neat that you're starting to receive regular letters from Solomon now!!! And it was such an informative letter!
