The last letter I share today is from a little boy that I have known as Tle. However, in this letter, I found out that this particular kiddo's name is actually Tern. That'll take some time to get used to. Though, I admit, Tern is a lot easier to say that Tle!
This letter is written on the Festivals and Holidays template, with a wonderful message added onto the end, written by Tern's aunt.
Tern is 4 years old and lives in Thailand. The letter was written December 20th, 2016.

Hello, sponsor. How are you? My name is Chuanchom. I am Thanathip's aunt. His nickname is Tern. He is practicing to write and color a picture as his abilities. There are 9 people in his family. There are his grandparents who work in the field, his older sister and his brother-in-law, an older sister of his mother, and Tern's parents. His parents work provincial (government) jobs. There is another aunt who studies in high school. Another family member is Nam Kao, this is in his aunt's daughter. Tern and Nam Kao play together everyday. The last family member is Tern. There are 4 men and 4 women. He likes to go to the paddy field. He likes to ride a bicycle. His family will hold a Christmas celebration on December 25th. His village is in the countryside, which is 20 km from town. If it is winter here, there is a lot of dust. The summer is hot. Have you ever been to Thailand? When will your family hold a Christmas celebration? When Tern is good at writing, I'll tell him to write to you by himself. Lastly, please pray for Tern's family and Tern's studying. May God bless you forever.
