Letters from Central America

I received two letters today! One from my Antonio and one from little Debora! It was great to hear from my sweet boy and such a blessing to receive a letter from Debora the day after I learned that I won't be sponsoring her anymore. I know there is also a final letter coming from her, which has apparently already left her country, but isn't in the U.S system yet. I should have it in about a month or so, as far as I can guess.

First up, the letter from Antonio. This boy has beautiful handwriting. I'm actually pretty jealous of how clear and easy-to-read it is. My handwriting can be so sloppy. Haha. In this letter, he talks a little bit about his previous sponsor, David, who I still keep in touch with. I asked David's permission, and I'm going to share with Antonio a little bit about what David is doing now. As long as Antonio wants to talk about David, I will share with him what I can.

Antonio is 10 years old and lives in Nicaragua. This letter was written June 26th, 2014.


Hello dear sponsor Kayla,

I am very happy to know a little more about you. It's a joy for me that you chose me as your sponsor kid. Answering your questions, the kids are cute and they make a happy home and the whole family. I have met new friends at school and with the teacher I have learnt many bible stories. It is something special for me. Something that has happened lately that was exciting and sad at the same time was when I knew that David was not going to be my sponsor any longer. But God knows why things happened because now I have you and that is something very special for me. I like to play video games and soccer. Me and my family are having good health, thanks to God. You are always in my prayers. Keep me in yours. I send my greeting with love. 



The letter I got from Debora is on the My Medical Checkup form. On the back, again, her mother wrote me a lovely message. It is sad to know that this will be the last time that I read words written by this lovely woman, but I feel blessed that I was able to receive this last letter from her. 

Debora is 5 years old and lives in Honduras. This letter was written July 20th, 2014.

Hello my beautiful friend, Kayla, 

May God bless you and keep you safe. This is Gladis writing again. We are very happy to hear about you. Debora is very happy with the letters you've sent. She says that you are very pretty and that she loves you very much. She took all the letters out that you've sent her and she was very happy because they all had pictures to color. She really likes to color. Debora has been enjoying good health. She's growing strong and healthy and is always very happy. I really enjoyed writing this letter and hearing from you. We say goodbye with many kisses and hugs, wishing you success in your life. God bless you. We love you very much.

  1. How bittersweet to receive a letter from Debora. She's so precious and her mom is so sweet. Antonio's letter melted my heart!! I love how he sees God's hand in the change of sponsors. And how fun it'll be for him to learn what David is up to!
