I haven’t provided updated photos and letters from my Manna 4 Lempira kids in awhile. They are long overdue. I sponsored Maria back in October, not long after the El Tablon project opened. Her smile full of light drew me in, and the confirmation of God’s calling I got after made my love for her that much greater. I’ve since received two letters from her and several photo updates. In fact, the Manna team just got back from Honduras, so I was just treated to her most recent photos in the past week. And I can’t stop looking at them and smiling.

She just has that twinkle in her eyes and a light that glows from inside that I hope she never loses. I love this girl.
The first letter was a general introduction letter: “I am grateful for the backpack. May God bless you for all your life for the supplies. May God keep you well. Many thanks for the supplies that help me continue going forward. I wish you much luck.”
Second letter: “Alisa, With love, I hope you are well. All is going well in school because you give me support. May God bless you. I hope you are well. With love for the supplies that you gave me. Know that I love you very much. Until soon. I will see you. I like to play ball and to play chase. Hope you are well. Thank you. I am in sixth grade. May God bless you.”
