Hi Dear Kayla,
May God bless you a lot! Your boy says: I an my family are well and my studies are too. You mentioned that you want me to pray for one of the boys that you write to. I would like to know more about Jonatan Caleb. How is he and his family? My church has a bible school in the summer. I was sleeping when the eclipse passed. I thank you for your letters that you sent me. For Christmas, I will play with cars and share with my brothers. What do you do for Christmas? I ask for prayers for my relatives.
Next, a letter from Sevenson. I just received a letter from him a few days ago, so this was a nice surprise.
Sevenson is 14 years old and lives in Haiti. He wrote this letter on December 9th, 2015.
I feel glad to greet you in the Almighty name of Jesus. My family and I are okay, thanks to God. I think you and your family are okay. My school activities are not okay because I didn't pass the first term exams. Pray for me to pass the second term exams. My church activities are okay, thanks to God. I want to share this verse with you; Genesis 1:27. "And God created man in his image, he made his portrait, he created male and female." Thank for the letter and your prayers. I didn't see the moon when it was red. I like math the most.
To round out this set of letters, a letter from Elias. He's pretty chatty in this letter. :) He talks about being in 5th grade....still. He's been in 5th grade since I started writing to him two years ago. I wonder why that is? Anyway, I love hearing about how his life has changed!
Elias is 16 years old and from Ethiopia. His letter is dated November 30th, 2015.
How are you doing beloved sponsor? My family and I are well. I am learning in 5th grade. I am attending Sunday school and my life has been changed. I have learned to obey God and love Jesus. I used to sing secular songs. I have since realized that secular songs are wicked and I stopped. Now sing only hymns. I am pleased that I have received your letter. I am doing good work at school. I help my family by doing household tasks and I play with my friends in my free time. How is the weather in your country? Bye!
