I could feel even extra love in both of these latest mailings from Cristian, both of which times he sent two letters! I love how at 12 years old, he still enjoys writing to me. Cristian is another child I’ll be meeting at the El Tablon church!
“Hello dear Sponsor! In this letter, I tell you that I am happy to have a sponsor from the US. I hope that you have a wonderful Christmas. Here in Honduras, I am well with all my family, safe and sound. From the first day that you sent me the photos, I felt happy to see all your family. I like the flowers you made. They make me happy. Also the trees. My siblings are Milton, Angie, and my mama is expecting a baby. I pray to God that it is well and living. My papa had a motorcycle accident, but thanks to God, he is okay. He didn’t get hit too hard. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!”
“Dear Alisa, I am happy to write to you. I hope that you are well and happy with your family. I am well here. i hope to learn more about you through your letters. I have two siblings. My parents are Ada Luz and Jose. I like to play soccer. I love to write. My favorite color is red. I wish I had a soccer ball. God will bless you for the things that you have done for me. With a lot of love, Cristian. Happy day to you and your family!”
This letter was written before he received his backpack, so it makes me so happy to think of him opening it to see the soccer ball he wanted! Also, isn’t this a great picture?
“I am very grateful for the help you give me and for the backpack and the supplies. I hope that you continue well with your family and children because God is the only God who protects us wherever we go. He protects my family and your family wherever we go because He is the only One who takes care of us. I love you very much, Alisa. Thanks for the gift you have given me. I am very grateful for all that you have done for me and my sister, Sofia. I love you very much, Alisa. May God bless you all the days of the year. TKM”
“May God bless you all the days. I always think about you. Thanks for the things you sent me. I am happy because you sent me a ball. May God bless you and your family. I love you very much!”
“Holy Week is important for me because we can enjoy it with our family. During my vacation, my families likes to go to the river and the church. I play soccer and swim with my friends. The typical Easter meal is tamalones (ticucos). Easter traditions in my country are dancing. My favorite part of Easter is to go to the river and be with my family. I dedicate this verse to you: Romans 3:23- I love you Alisa. Hello Alisa! I feel happy for the cross you sent me. I love it and I feel happy. I liked the photos that you sent me. They are very nice. In the United States the stickers are very nice. I like the drawing that you sent and I read the other things that you sent. All that you sent is very pretty. I would like to learn to make it. I love you Alisa. My mom was a girl called Lesli. The eyes are blue. With love, Cristian. This bird is a toucan.”
Isn’t he a great artist? Cristian’s so sweet and appreciative. I know he and his brother work hard at home, so I can’t wait to see him having fun with the other kids at the fun day!
