I received my favorite introduction letter ever from Albia, and now the second letter from her is just as loving and wonderful from her mother. It’s amazing to hear how much of a connection her family has to me, and I feel that connection right back. Sponsoring Albia happened suddenly when I felt a calling, and God clearly made a perfect match.
Albia is 5 and lives in the Philippines.
“Dear Miss Alisa, I am glad to receive your letter again. Albia is happy to see and to hear about your letter (content). She had a big smile when we opened and read the letter. She was amazed at your students. She really wants to finish school and be a teacher when she grows up and build our own house. I really do appreciate/am thankful for all of the letters and pictures that you’ve sent. We keep it in the envelope. Every day, she wants to look at your letters and pictures. We always keep on praying for your health and safety. Hope that you’ll be happy this Christmas this December. Thank you and God bless! Advance Merry Christmas. Respectfully Yours, Benia (mother of Albia)”
It means so much to me as a sponsor to receive a letter like this. Add the Philippines to the list of countries I have to visit, because I need to give this little girl and her mom hugs in person! Someday…
