Sweet Greetings

On Mondays, blogging Compassion sponsors often post the letters they may have received during the week. From now on, my posts will be entitled "Sweet Greetings", which is a signature Tasya often writes at the end of her letters! I am linking up with Blogging from the Boonies- please check out Michelle's lovely blog and the wonderful Compassion-related resources she posts there.



This week we received a letter from Said, our boy in Tanzania. Said's letters are always enthusiastic, and he usually sends a drawing or two with his letters. He is such a talented artist! Said wrote to us last fall and said his family travels to Kilosa to help his grandmother with crop planting, after they have finished their own planting. I found last year's letter and it said "we all just love crop planting!" Oh, that I could find such enthusiasm for my housework and responsibilities!




Jessi, 
May the name of the Lord be praised. Praise the Lord Jesus. My family and I are fine. How are you and your family? I hope you are doing well. The aim of this letter is to let you know that we are now on leave and the school will be open on 10/9/2012, it was a good thing! Class seven we didn't close, but we continued with studies as usual for class seven examination preparation to complete primary school on 19/9/2012. After completing school I will go to visit my grandmother at Kilosa in Morogoro region. I am praying for you and your family, and your work and your studies. I ask you to pray for me on the completing class seven day. Please go on praying for me always. 

May God protect you. 
Said

  1. What an impressive drawing!! I correspond with a teenager in Tanzania and he also includes good drawings with his letters. That's also so convicting to read that Said says that he loves crop planting....one of our little guys from Mexico said one of his favorite things to do is to watch his family's sheep....I wish I were so enthusiastic about chores!!
