Sweet Greetings from Uganda

Mail Call Monday once again! I know I won't be getting any mail today (it's a holiday) so it's safe to do an early post!

Last week, shortly after my last Mail Call post, I got another letter from Caleb in Uganda! It made me happy because I got it after I finished up at the dentist. I came inside to take a nap, stayed awake long enough to read the letter, and promptly fell asleep. : )

Caleb's letter was an "about me" form letter, which is awesome! It's a rare treat for correspondents to get these intro letters. Caleb's was full of lots of helpful information. His mom is 44  (I had trouble reading her name) and his dad is 56- older than my dad! And his name is Edgar Johnson, which is not what I would expect in Uganda! He also has a 4 year old brother and a 17 year old sister. Their names were hard to read, too, but it's AWESOME to know the genders and names of Caleb's siblings. It can take sooooo long to find that out through exchange of letters with some kids! Caleb's best friend's name is John Mark, and his favorite subject is Social Studies. His favorite color is blue (I approve), he likes football, and his favorite Bible story is the creation story. The letter asked Caleb if he could visit anywhere in the world, where would he go and why. He said the airport, because he wants to see the people who work there! In the free writing section of the letter, Caleb shared that he really loves spending time with his friends John Mark, Emmanuel, and Joseph, and he likes going to Sunday School. He also said "I am so happy that you chose me to be part of your family," which just melted my heart. I love this kid! Two letters from him and I just think he's awesome. Caleb has a birthday coming up in August, so I am putting together an airport themed coloring book for him! : )


  1. Don't you just love the things the kids share in their letters! :)

  2. That is so fun that he wants to go to an airport!! And I also love when I learn about my kids' families. It's such a blessing!!
