I received this beautiful photo from Emmanuella today.
This is a thank you for the backpack she got for Christmas, I think, though the letter does not include a thank you. But my God is this a beautiful photo. With her head shaved and the hint of a smile, I think it brings out how beautiful her eyes are.
Here is the letter (dated 5/5/13) that accompanies this photo:
Thank you for the letters, pictures and words of encouragement you gave me. I am very glad to have you. I wish you happy birthday, Beverly! Yes, I can identify you in the picture. You are in the black t-shirt. My mother prepare sweet pastries, e.g., cake, meat pie and rough barns. (I'm not sure what "rough barns" are! I had asked how her family celebrates birthdays)
I was 6th in my class exams this term.
How old is your father now?
I pray that God will give you everlasting life.
Pray that God will give my parent wisdom to take care of me.
