More About Jhon

I always enjoy hearing from Jhon. His letters to me really feel open and are always newsy. It's like truly having a pen pal, which, I think, is a rare thing when it comes to writing to sponsored children.

Jhon is 15 years old and lives in Bolivia. His letter is dated August 21st, 2014.


Hello Dear Sponsor Kayla, 

Greetings in the peace of the Lord. Thank you very much for the letters, the greeting cards, and the pictures that you sent to me. Your cousin is very nice. My family and I are fine. I'm better now that I live in Beni. I'm doing well in school and my favorite subjects are History and Literature. I like all kinds of ice cream. I've not visited my relatives yet, but I know that I will do that someday. I spend nice times with my classmates and friends. My favorite sport is soccer, but I also like to play checkers. One Saturday morning, we went to the river Pirai, with my family. I swam with my siblings and we had a lot of fun. We made a barbecue for lunch and then we went to the park. That day I had a great time with my family. I'm doing well at the student center and we have a lot of activities to do there. I say goodbye in the holy peace of the Lord. God bless you and your family. I'll be praying for you. Please pray for me and for my family.

  1. I find that my Bolivian kids are very conversational and Jhon seems to be the same!! What a great letter. And how neat to learn that he likes checkers in addition to soccer.
