Dearest Sponsor, I hope that you are fine alongside your family. I want to send you lots of greetings through this letter. I thank God because all of my family is healthy. My father works as a day laborer and farmer. He also travels to the coast to cut sugar cane for five months. Meanwhile, my mother does the housework and raises some domestic animals. She also does some weaving. I have a sister who is two years old. I used to play tag and soccer with my friends during the recess at school. My favorite subject was Mathematics and art. After school, I usually help my mother to look for some herbs for the pigs and then do my homework. When I get older, I would like to work in a restaurant and help my family economically.
For my birthday, my parents bought me a cake and we spent good time together. In my free time, I like to rest and talk with my family. As a family, we do not attend any church and I do not the reason. Please pray for my family so that God can put the desire in the hearts of my parents to worship God. Thank you so much for the food and Christmas Gifts because they are a blessing to my family. I say goodbye with much love and affection. May our Lord Jesus take care of you wherever you are!
