Letter from Annie Rose

What a delightful first letter from Annie Rose, in the Philippines

May 18, 2014

Dear Beverly Sykes

Hello!  Have a nice day to you, Grandma.  How are you?  Me, I'm always playing with my friends after helping my mother in the house chorse.  It's already summer here in our place and it's too nice always swimming in the river.

The season here is very hot.  Do you have summer in your place?   We don't have spring season here in our country.

I love music, new songs now.  I don't have a good voice but I love to sing.  I took care pig and chicken.  I'm the one who feed of it.  I do my best to finish school to have a good job.

I'll pray to God that we are all safety and happy always.  I'm so happy in the book and letters you've sent.  Thank you very much.

Song of songs 2:32:  "And you, my love, are an apple of tree among trees of the forest."

Meet Brayan

After I finished reading "Enrique's Journey," about a boy from Honduras whose mother had left him when he was 5, who made a perilous journey to the U.S. to find her at age 15, I felt so discouraged by the way our country is treating children fleeing poverty and violence and trying to come as refugees to this country.

I knew that as one person there was nothing I substantial I could do, but I could add a child from Honduras to our family.

Brayan is 12 years old, the age Enrique was when he decided to try to earn enough money to make the dangerous trip to the U.S.  He lives with his grandmother, like Enrique's sister did (Enrique lived with his father) after the mother left.  And he has been waiting for a sponsor for nearly a year.

Compassion tells me that he had one sponsor for about five years, but they only wrote to him once a year.  He then had two more sponsors who were assigned to him, but didn't want him.

Both parents are alive, but the father has never been in the picture, and the mother does not live with Brayan and the grandmother.

I had to take on the sponsorship of this child.  I hope to get to know him and maybe make a teeny part of his life a bit better.

Letter from Henrique

In this form letter, I learn about Henrique's Christian learning

Dated May 8, 2014

At the project I have Bible class 1 time a week.  Because of Bible classes I've been able to learn that God is good. What I like most about Bible class is learning new Bible stories.  My favorite Bible story is David and Goliath.  What I like most about Jesus' life is the miracles of Jesus.  When I pray I ask god  for my family.

Bible verse:  "I can do all things through Christ, which strengtheneth me." --Philippians 4:13

Hello, how are you?  My name is Lucilia and I am writing on behalf of Luiz.  He isa very active boy and he likes to fly kites and play soccer.  Here at the project he participates in soccer, karate and recreation games.  A strong hug on behalf of Luiz.

Letter from Briana

Dated 6/10/14

Dear Beverly Sykes,

Hello!  I feel happy to write you this letter.  I hope that you and your family are fine, thanks to God.  How are you, your family and your activitiess?  As for me, I am not very well because I was sick.  I got a fever and rheumatism.  I saw a doctor and I am under treatment.  I feel good to write you this letter. 

In answer to your questions, yes, I sneeze, especially when I get flu and cough. My birthday has already ended; I had a nice party but it was not grandiose.  What about yours?  Have you ever sneezed?  How do you celebrate your birthday with your family?

Please pray for me so that I can have more patience just like Solomon and that I can be intelligent like the three men Shadrack, Meshach and Abednego.  Please pray for my schooling and temperance.  I will be praying so that God can bless you abundantly.
