Letter from Luna

I got a letter from Luna late last week that had been in translation for just under a month. I was thinking for sure I’d have to ask for it to be manually unstuck, but it made it through all on its own. I absolutely love hearing from Luna, my very bubbly young teen girl. Every letter from her is a joy.


Luna is 13 and lives in Colombia.

“Dear Alisa, Hello Godmother. May God bless you abundantly. May God’s grace always be upon you. I am very happy to write the letter and tell you that the project’s name where I go is Hombre Nuevo CDC. The number of children in my project is 364. The days that I go to the projects are on Wednesdays and Thursdays. I also want to tell you that my favorite activity at the project is classes. Godmother, let me tell you that the staff that works there is very friendly and they are respectful. I want you to know that the cooks that work at the project prepare delicious foods, such as rice, beef, chicken, and natural juices. School is going very well for me, even my teachers always congratulate me. Godmother, I tell you that everything is thanks to God, who gives me wisdom. Godmother, I am very sad because my grandfather passed away and that was very hard for me. Thank you very much for all your letters and gifts. Kisses and hugs. Goodbye, Luna

‘and may the Lord make you increase and abound in love to one another and to all men, as we do to you,’ 1 Thessalonians 3:12”


Let me tell you, that if Compassion were to offer a summer tour to Colombia, I would figure out a way to be there to see this girl, without a doubt.
