Mail Call Monday!

Several Mondays each month, Compassion International sponsors link up to share the news from their sponsored children around the world.

It was a cold walk to the mailbox today as the snow fell down around me! I think that maybe I should have worn gloves. By the time I got back to my house, my fingers were stiff and sore!

But the walk was worth it! I found a cream colored envelope tucked amongst the junk mail and catalogs.

Today’s letter was from our Johan in East India!

Copy of Compassion 018

This most recent letter was special in that Johan made reference to many of the letters we’ve sent to him since Spring. It seems like he enjoys the letters we are able to send through Compassion online letter writing tool and the pictures that go along with them.

Johan tells us he liked the pictures of Kaya and Luna riding horses and he went on to tell us that he enjoys riding his bicycle and travel on other vehicles. (Johan was able to buy a bicycle with a birthday gift we sent, so I am happy to hear that he enjoys it!)

Johan then mentioned the picture we sent of the tiny turtle we found this summer. He tells us that they have similar looking turtles in his area.

Lastly he told us that he liked the pictures of Kaya and Luna holding baby animals at a petting zoo we went to in the spring. “As your children like the birds and baby goat, same that I also like them. I love them very much and they are found around our home here, too.”

Johan closes his letter in asking for prayer and assuring us that he prays for us always. He signs off with, “Your dear child, Johan”. He is very dear to us, indeed!
