So far, this month, I have only had 4 letters. With the month only being halfway through, I hope to receive some more before the end.
This week, I received two letters. The first letter I will share is from Faith. I was so happy to receive this letter because it had been 7 whole months since I last heard from her. Faith isn't typically a very chatty girl, but this short letter does have some good details in it.
Faith is 10 years old and lives in Kenya. Her letter is dated June 11th, 2016.
How are you, my dear sponsor? I am going well with my brothers and sisters here at home. It is my prayer that you are fine and healthy too. I am happy for the letter you sent to me. I was happy to hear from you. Here in Compassion, we are going on well and we are learning the word of God. We go to Compassion every Saturday. In my class we are 36 pupils. At school, I am doing well. Pray for me to keep on improving. In my leisure time I like playing rope skipping with my friends. I also like drawing and coloring pictures. May God bless you. Receive much greetings from my brothers and my sisters. They love you too. Greet all of your family members.
Next, a letter from Nikko. This is my second letter in two months from Nikko. These letters date back a bit, but that shows me that he has continued to write to me, the letters have just been delayed with the new system. Hopefully I have a one or two still on the way.
In his letter, Nikko responds to the letter I wrote about Jesus' 12 disciples being young men, not the old men we typically picture. He really seems to like that letter. I'm not sure who shared it first, but thank you for posting it, so I could use it too!
Nikko is 17 years old and lives in the Philippines. He wrote this letter on June 4th, 2016.
Hello dear sponsor! How have you been? I would like to thank you again for your letters that I received today.
You're asking me about Jesus' 12 disciples and yes, you are right, I was thinking of old men with grey beards and I am surprised to know that they were not. Thanks for sharing about some things about Jesus. I am glad to have another learning that I got from you. Thank you also for praying for us here always. I am really happy to hear that. Yes, we restarted school. We had activities there. We got the chance to express ourselves and what's in our hearts and bond with my classmates. I am glad to experience that one day. Last Christmas, I received a ball, hair wax, and boxer shorts for presents. summer has just ended and we are experiencing rainy days, but I thank God, for it is a blessing. Thank for sharing your verse. I would like to share one with you also. It is 2 Corinthians 3:18. God bless you.
