Hobbies, Pets, and Learning, Oh My!

I received two letters from precious, little Debora. Since Debora is so young, she is helped to fill out fill-in-the-blank style form letters. Debora's mother always helps Debora fill out the blanks and then she writes me a nice, long message on the back of the letter. I feel like I'm really building a connection with Debora's mother and I like that. :)

Both letters were written on May 20th, 2014. I will share both letters with you now:

Hello Dear Kayla, 

This is Gladis writing to you. May God bless you richly and prosper the work of your hands, so that you are blessed. I want to tell you a little of what Debora has learned at the project. I thank God for what she has learned at the project. Debora has learned to share with other children, to be happy, to sing, and to discover her talents. In the spiritual area she has learned to pray and worship God. About taking care of her body, she has learned to shower everyday, wash her hands, and brush her teeth. Debora is very happy and playful. She has learned so many news things and every day she amazes me how much she learns. Debora has 2 brothers. Abraham is the oldest and he is 12 years old and Aaron is 7. Debora likes to eat fruits and vegetables, chicken and beef. She is very special and she always talks to us about you. She plays a lot. It is a pleasure to write to you. Thank you very much. We always remember you and we love you very much and Debora loves you very much. I say goodbye with many kisses and hugs. 

With Love,

Hello dear and beautiful Kayla,

God bless you and multiply you. I hope that God can pour many blessing upon your life. I am really happy to write to you and to tell you about Debora. I'm really happy to know more about you and I hope that you're healthy next to those that surround you. It is such a delight for us, as parents, to know that you are part of our family and to see how much you have helped Debora. Let me tell you that Debora is really beautiful and a playful girl. I want to tell you that Debora has already started Kindergarten (I know that the school year starts in February in Honduras). She is in her first quarter. She really likes going to school. She starts school at 1:30 in the afternoon and ends at 3:30 in the afternoon. She has learned a lot and she also likes to share her time with us, her parents. She also likes to play at home with her toys. Debora likes animals a lot and she has a hen that has little chicks. The name of her hen is Copetona. Her pets are really fun and she likes to play with them. Well, I must say goodbye to you with much love. It has been a pleasure to write to you. We want to tell you that we love you and we hope that God can bless and protect you. Receive many hugs and kisses from us. 




  1. I love how she described herself as "happy and playful"!! And how neat that you're getting to know her mom. I feel the same way about our Mary in Bolivia. Her mom, Juana, writes the sweetest letters!!

    1. When I write back, I'm going to include a letter for Debora and a separate letter for her mother. I've never done that before, but I don't think it'll be a problem.
