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!
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.
