I was extra excited when I saw that I had a new letter in translation from Albia and her mom, because even after just two letters received, I feel very close to the family. I know they feel the same way, and this latest letter is just as special!
Albia is 5 and lives in the Philippines.
The letter uses the My Hopes for the Future template. In the future, Albia hopes to learn about cooking and wants to go on a field trip. She hopes to visit America and would like to meet her sponsor. When she grows up, she wants to be a teacher. Here is the picture she drew:
Next was the letter from Albia’s mom. It says “Dear Alisa, How is your 2018? On her third quarter, Albia got an award from her school. She was so happy from receiving your Christmas gift which we bought a dress and sandals. She was very glad wearing them, she said she’ll take good care of them. As a mother, I am so thankful for all your support. I hope you had a happy Christmas. I’m happy to read your letter once again. What season is it in your place now? I pray that God will guide and give you strength every day. God Bless, Respectfully Yours, Benia (Albia’s mom)”
Her mother, who is probably around the same age that I am, is doing a wonderful job raising her family in very difficult conditions. To get to form the connection with her, along with Albia, means so much to me.
