Now, with that said, I only received letters from three of my five Manna boys, and none of the letters were actually written to me, because they didn't know me yet, but still, I got to read letters from my boys!
I'll go in age order, as usual.
Up first, is the baby of the family, Anthony. His mother wrote two separate letters and Anthony included his handprint in red and green paint. Both of these letters are addressed to a previous sponsor and are thanking that sponsor for everything she sent. Anthony's mother sounds like such a sweet woman. I look forward to getting to know her!
Anthony is 2 years old.
How are you? I hope you are well. We are very well. I am the mother of Anthony. I write you because he cannot write yet. He is very small. He loves you very much. All that you sent him makes him very happy. We would like to meet you. We would like for you to send us photos so we can see you and I will tell my son who it is that sends him the letters and other things. Thanks for the graciousness you have to my son. With these few words, I say goodbye. May God pour many blessings in your life. We love you very much. We await your letter.

Thanks for the backpack and the supplies that you have sent to my son, Anthony. I am very grateful for you. I am a single mother and he needed all of this. God bless you. Merry Christmas!
Up next, I received letters from my newest boys, whom I just sponsored at the end of December. Both of these letters were written to nobody in particular. All of the children received a backpack for Christmas and the children were directed to write thank you notes, essentially, to the person or organization that packed them a backpack.
Noel left a short note and a red handprint to show his thanks. Noel is 6 years old.
Dear sponsors. Hello. With love and affection. Hugs!
And now onto Ivan's letter. I have to admit, I'm pretty amazed with Ivan's letter. I know from information that I got when I first sponsored him, that Ivan attends the local bilingual school. Due to that, I know that Ivan is learning English, but I didn't realize how well he was doing in this school. Ivan's letter is written solely in English! Wow!
Ivan is 13 years old.
Dear person that sent me the materials,
Thank you for the materials that you send to me. I am so happy because my father will not have to spend more money next year for my materials for high school. I am studying in a bilingual school that is named Abundant Life Christian School. It's a Christian school and we have a class of Christianity. The last two classes, we were looking at a movie of Moses. Right now, you are thinking that I have money, but no because my father works a lot for me. My father works in the mountains. He got the money so difficulty. Thanks for the materials. You have a big heart.
