In the previous batch of Manna 4 Lempira letters, I didn’t receive one from Cristian, so I was very glad to see one from him included this time, and it was so loving!
Cristian is 11 and lives in the El Tablon community of Lempira, Honduras.
“Dear Alisa, I want to tell you in this letter that I am happy to have a sponsor like you. I send you many hugs. I hope that you are well with your family. I know that in your heart God makes wonderful things for what you have done for me. I want to know more about you. I want to ask you a loving question. I love you and your family very much. I want to tell you that I am going to participate in points. I want to dedicate it to you and your dear family and your pretty cat. I want to know if you are well with your husband and your parents. With much love for Alisa and your family. I love you so much.”
I’m not sure exactly what participating in points means, but I’m assuming it’s something to do with school. I give extra encouragement to Cristian more than anyone else in terms of his education, because his older brother dropped out of school to work, and I know that it’s a very real possibility for Cristian too, but I want him to have those opportunities for himself that finishing school will get him. I want him to know I believe in him.
