Dear Godmother Kayla,
I greet you in the name of Jesus. Thank you for the photo, the letter, The Father's Love Letter, and for the Christmas card. I am glad that you take care of the kids. Surely you are talking to them about the word of God. Are you married? Surely God will give you a son or daughter. The Father's Love Letter was very beautiful. The texts were very beautiful. Thanks for the coloring pages you sent to me. I will cut them out and paint them and use them to decorate my room. I know it will look very cute. On the Christmas tree, I decorated many things. I tell you that I am at Baley Academy. I am on vacation, playing with my neighbors and attending the project. It is the month of February. I end with a strong hug and kiss.
I am so happy to receive this letter from Ayling. I have been faithfully writing to her since the end of August and this is the very first letter I am receiving from her! I think that she is still getting me confused with her previous correspondent sponsor because she is asking me about my boyfriend, even though I have told her that I am single Oh well. We'll get there!
Ayling is 10 years old and is from Nicaragua. Her letter is dated October 5th, 2016. I have no idea what took it so long to get here!
Hello Dear Sponsor Kayla,
Receive greetings from Ayling. May God bless you. She says she is grateful to you for your sponsorship and photos. She wants to tell you that she went to celebrate birthdays last month and she spent them great at the pool. She says that she already has Jesus in her heart as John 1:12 says. She says that she has her Easter celebration in April. Her family and she go to church to commemorate the death of Jesus. She would like to know what bible story you liked when you were a little girl. Since when were you dating your boyfriend? She asks you to pray for her studies and her family. She prays for you. She fondly says goodbye. Her teacher Jaqueline helped her write this letter.
And the last letter of the day is from Faith, who I call my grumpy-faced girl. Every photo I've received of her, so far, has her making an pretty sour face. I think it's adorable. :)
Faith is 11 years old and lives in Kenya. Her letter was written March 4th, 2017.
Much Greetings My Dear Sponsor,
It is my hope that God has been protecting you. I am fine with my family members. God has been our helper. I am happy to inform you that I received your letter that you sent to me. I was very pleased for you remembering me. I thank God for how far he has taken me. We are almost towards the end of the first term of Grade 6. I am happy that I am doing well. Keep on praying for me so that I can continue doing well. I pass my warm greetings to your family members and friends. I love you very much.
