My letter from Cristofer, my first letter from him that’s addressed to me (last one was addressed to financial sponsor/previous correspondent), finally came through after being in translation since May 2nd! I have been so very eagerly awaiting this letter to come through, and I knew, with all the waiting I had to do, that it would be worth it. I am so happy to say that it absolutely was!! It is such a long letter that it even went on to a 3rd page!
Cristofer is 9 years old and from Peru.
Dear sponsor Alisa, Hello! I want to thank you for the letter and the photos you sent. I am so thankful to the Lord because he is taking care of my mom and me. I want you to know that during my vacation I went to “La Granja” and when I got there I was very happy because there were many elks and I caught a big gray one. The water of the pool was refreshing. We are in summer and the weather is very hot. I also want to tell you that the kids of the student center and I went to a playground. I have a new teacher at school who loves us very much. When she gives us an exam, my classmates and I get very nervous. On my birthday I am going to invite my friends and my cousins to celebrate my birthday on October 12. When is your birthday? I have a little dog which is a mutt dog but he’s cute. Do you have a dog? My mom bought me a soccer ball. I enjoy playing soccer with my friends after church. Before school began, I was going to Pimentel Beach every Sunday because it is a really nice beach. I enjoy making sand castles and I have my rubber ring. At church we had a Bible knowledge contes and I am memorizing many Bible verses. At the end of the month we are going to participate in a dance contest. We are rehearsing because we would like to win. Well my beloved sponsor, I pray to Jesus that He might look after you. I love you. Please pray for my grandpa and for my mom. Goodbye, Cristofer
What an awesome and sweet kid he is! He is so open and has so much to say, and I was able to learn so much more about him! With having had 2 previous sponsors and receiving very few letters between them, I was expecting it to take awhile for him to open up this much.
