I was blessed to get a few letters from Heidy when Manna letters came in in August! 3 to be exact! The last one just says it’s from Elizabeth, so I thought I received it on accident. Heidy does sign her letters as Heydey Elizabeth, though, and apparently there is no other Elizabeth in the program, so it must be from her, too!
Greeting: Dear Sponsor, I feel very happy and content. I hope that you are in good health along with your loving family. I wish you success in your daily labors. Thanks: I am very thankful with God for having put in my way such a kind and caring person as you. Thank you for bringing me this unconditional support. May God always bless your life. For what you are doing for me I feel very thankful. I hope to meet you soon! I tell you that I like to play with my friends and with dolls. I feel very excited to go to the church at betania. I go to school and I am in 4th grade. I like to go to church and to school. Blessings!
My dear sponsor Alisa. I am grateful with God in the first place for choosing me. I live in Los Naranjas (The Oranges), San Juan, Intibuca. I have a white rabbit. My favorite color is pink. My favorite food is chicken. I am 10 years old, and I am in fourth grade. I would like to be a teacher of Bible School, and to support my community. My birthday is February 2nd. For fun I like to jump rope. My school is so pretty. I am going to pray for you that God would help you in your profession and that God blesses your life always. Thank you for writing me these nice things. I love you very much, Alisa. I send you hugs and kisses. God bless you.
Dear Sponsor, My name is Elizabeth. i wish you many blessings. Today I want to tell you that I am very well of health. i also want to tell you that I have a pet named Matius. He is a white dog with two spots- one on his head and another on his eyes and he has spots on the pink part of his belly and paws. I study in a private school called Liceo San Juan. I am 10 years old. I am in 5th grade. I like to ride a bicycle and I always play with my mother. I wish that your day is filled with blessings.
It came in a little envelope hand-folded and stapled out of looseleaf paper, with a heart on it. Maybe she was feeling like going by her middle name that day? And this letter is dated after the others, and in May, so she could’ve finished 4th grade and moved on to 5th. The only thing that seems conflicting is that in one letter she says she has a rabbit for a pet and in this one it talks about a pet dog. I talked to Kim, who runs, Manna 4 Lempira, and she does think it is Heidy’s though, so I’ll assume it’s hers unless I hear differently.
