A Wonderful Christmas Gift

Yesterday, on Christmas Eve, I received a wonderful surprise in the mail. It was my very first letter from Enatenesh. I was assigned her as a correspondence child in July, so I've been eagerly awaiting her letter for quite awhile. It makes me sad that Compassion eliminated the first letter policy for correspondence children. Correspondence sponsors like to learn the basic information about family and interests too. But, oh well, I digress.

It seems that Enatenesh's financial sponsor has sent her a couple financial gifts. I got to hear all about them in this letter and I got two pictures! Both of the pictures included her whole family. Really, what a wonderful treasure. Merry Christmas to me!

Of course, since it is Christmas day, I want to wish all of my readers a Merry Christmas!

Here is the lovely letter from my beautiful young lady:


Dear Kayla,

Dear my sponsor. How are you doing? My family and I are fine, praise to God. I thank you for everything you have done. God bless you. I am learning my education and Sunday school. I bought trousers. My family bought sheep and food as well. The rest of the money is saved in the bank. Thank you so much. What is the weather in your country? Ours is raining. I love you. Bye. 




  1. Love pictures! And what a treat to see the whole family!
    Merry Christmas!

  2. What a great Christmas surprise!! Enatenesh's family is beautiful!! What a treasure to have two photos of her family. And what a great financial sponsor she has--that they were able to buy sheep and still save some money!!!
