It's Cold in Thailand: A Letter from Fongwin

I received another great letter from my boy Fongwin, from Thailand. He's written great, friendly, and descriptive letters from the very beginning of our relationship. I feel blessed to be able to write to such a wonderful kiddo.

This letter is dated January 8th, 2014. Fongwin is 11 years old.


Dear Kayla,

Hello sponsor. I'm very glad to write a letter to you again. My family and I are fine. How are you and your family? Thank you very much for supporting me and praying for my study. The photo that you sent to me is very beautiful. It's very cool in my hometown. There is thick fog and there is frost in some provinces, but I have never seen it. I go to school everyday tough it is very cold. I must wear a sweater to school. Is it very cold in your country? How about Christmas in your country? I was so happy at Christmas. The project held many activities. I've received sports clothing as a Christmas gift. It's very beautiful. Please pray for my study and my parents' health. Lastly, may God bless you. 

Love in Christ, 



  1. What a fun letter!! It sounds like it's quite cold for Fongwin…at least he has a sweater for school!

    1. I wonder what a cold temperature is in Thailand. I should look it up. The term cold is definitely relative to the area. :) I am also glad he has a sweater for school. It's hard to learn if you're cold.

    1. He lives near Chiang Rai. I didn't realize it got cold there. Though, I guess to him, it may be cold, even if it's just a 10 degrees colder than usual, or something.
