Three Weekend Letters

On Saturday, I received three letters from my kiddos. No fancy intro here, just letters. 

First up, the letter from Xhuliano. This is a shorter letter for him, but I am glad that it's school keeping him busy. Both of my Albanian boys told me that they study a lot. Good for them! 

Xhulinao is 14 years old and lives in Albania. 

Hello My Friend!

I'm so happy that you always send me letters and beautiful thoughts. You are so polite and nice to me. I'm glad for you that you are so happy. I celebrated my birthday with my family and my two sisters. Thank you a lot for your wishes. 

I don't have much free time because I study a lot and I read a lot of books. The weather here is getting warm. 

Thank you for the painting and the stickers you sent for my sisters. They love you a lot. I'm ending this letter, wishing you a lot of beautiful days. God bless you! 



Next up, a letter from Emanise. In a recent letter, I asked all of my kids if they had an stories they could share from their country. You might recognize Emanise's story. :) 

Emanise is 15 years old and lives in Haiti. 


Dear Kayla, 

Today I am happy to write you this letter. How are you, your health, your friends, and your activities? As for me, everything is going well, thanks to God. Did you hear about Arielle's story? I want to share it with you. 

Once upon a time, a father siren had his daughter called Arielle. On her birthday, her father decided to celebrate to honor her. By the time the ceremony is starting, the master of the ceremony was calling Arielle and they could not see her. Her father got angry and he ordered his servant to find out where Arielle could be and the servant did not see her either. However, Arielle goes out with a friend of hers. All of a sudden, they both saw a boat passing and Arielle stated, "Let me go and see what that is." Once she arrived, she saw a young man submerging. She quickly went and tried to rescue him. Since her father was so angry, she explained to him how it happened and she told him that she loves the young man. Her father agreed with her and she helped him come out on the surface of the water. The feel in love and got married. They gave birth to beautiful children. 

In your next letter, I would like to know whether or not you love the story. I wanted to share this story with you. Please keep me in your prayers and then I will be praying so that God can bless you. 



Lastly, a letter from Jhon. Jhon is always good at describing his latest activities to me. I always enjoy hearing from him. 

Jhon is 16 years old and lives in Bolivia. His letter is dated March 25th, 2015. 


Dear Kayla, 

Hello beloved sponsor! I greet you with the peace of the Lord. I thank you for the letter and pictures you sent me. In answer to your questions, I discovered my sponsor when my tutor at the student center told me. My favorite book of the Bible is Genesis. I am doing well in my exams. Yes, I could do the pyramids without falling. (Jhon told me about a gymnastics contest he was in and him and his friends made a human pyramid. I asked if they did it without falling.) 

Past Sunday, I went to the swimming pool with my family and I had a good time. The next Friday we will remember Father's Day in our country. We organized a celebration that our fathers can enjoy it and have a good time. 

I say goodbye with the peace of the Lord and I wish God blesses you. 

With Love,
