This is my second letter from Oxford, who just turned 6 on July 2nd! Oxford is the child I sponsored in memory of my grandmother who passed away in October, and they share the same birthday. So with the sadness of having it be the first birthday of hers with her not here for it, thinking about this little guy having a happy birthday all the way in Africa helped a lot.
Oxford is 6 and lives in Ghana.
This letter was written in the My Family template. Oxford has a sister who is 8 and two younger brothers who are 4 and 1. His family’s faith is Christian, and he lives in a town with them and his siblings. His favorite ways to help his family are in the kitchen and fetching water. The letter says: “Dear Alisa, Oxford says pray for him to humble himself in all the days of his life and God should protect you and family. When I grow, says Oxford, I will also make some difference in other peoples’ life.”
