First up, I received my very first letter from Chintada. He dictated some of my letter back to me, which I find a little funny, for some reason. But, he also shared things about himself, which I love, of course.
Chintada is 18 years old and lives in East India. This letter was October 9th, 2014.
Greetings to you in the name of Jesus Christ. I and my family are doing well by the grace of God. I hope and pray that everything will be going on well with you.
I am very much happy to receive your letter and hear about your family through this letter. I am praying for your family in my daily prayer. I know that you are 25 years old and are not married and don't have any children. I am praying for your marriage life. I am very much happy to listen about your responsibility that you are taking care of the children. I cam to know your favorite food, color, sweet, animal, and weather.
I am not studying in college, but I am learning tailoring training at the project center. Please pray for my tailoring training. The weather is very cold here. What is your weather? Please pray for me and I will be praying for you. Thanks, in Christ's love.
Next up, a letter from Maria. It's a short letter, for her. She usually writes a little bit more. I know that most projects have kids write letters before they go off for fun activities. In cases of short letters, I like to picture my child hurriedly writing so they can run off to join a soccer game, sing a song, do some art, etc.
Maria is 10 years old and lives in Brazil. This letter was written on September 9th, 2014.
Dear Sponsor Kayla,
Hello! How are you? Me and my family are well. I'm in 5th grade and my grades are good. We are in exam week. I am studying hard for exams. The subjects I like the most are math, English, and science. Here in the project, I do swimming and art. Tomorrow, we will go to the zoo. I will like it a lot because I love animals. I have a dog called Morena. Thanks for the letters you sent.
A hug from your sponsored child,
