I finally had a letter from Shallon, who hasn't written for a long time. I worried because of the droughts experienced in Uganda. Here is her letter:
Beloved Beverly Sykes,
With amazing happiness of writing this letter is to send my heartfelt greetings to you and beloved family members.
First and foremost I would like to thank God almighty for the gift of life to see that we are all still alive in his name. I am now in holidays and I have ended this term successfully.
But unfortunately I transferred from the school I was in and I am in the new school because I do not take the food they give us so I had to go in a school that was near to my home area.
I promoted to senior two with the position of 6th out of 38 students and I thank God for this position. I also promise you to do the best next term more than this.
My family members are okay and they all greet you.
We are now enjoying both sunshine and rain. Really condition is good here ihn Uganda as Christmas is soon coming but there is inflation of goods and works are going on slowly so pray for us.
I also request for prayers in my daily life because at times I feel headache and stomach pain but by God's mercy I will get well.
I appreciate your love, kindness and care you render to me. Sincerely may God reward you abundantly.
I have new friends who love you and also love to hear from you.
Let me wish you the best in whatever you do.
May good Lord bless you.
