Sylvia is only a year younger than me but already writes such nice letters and I feel closer to her by every letter we exchange. It is almost time to receive a new updated photo of her and I think we might get one of her with the gift we just sent to her family so I am so excited about this!!

I sent her a two page letter where I told her about Easter traditions and how I usually spend the holiday with my family. I told her about Jesus and how much he loves her. I told her about my volleyball team and my favorite animal and why it is my favorite animals. I also asked her a few questions about her. I shared some passages from the Bible that I like myself as well as I included some stickers, coloring pages and motives with Christian motives. I even manage to squeeze in some photos and a Easter card for every family member. After I went to the post office to drop it off, I felt so happy and good about it on my way home. And as much as it makes me feel great - I always need to remember that this is not only about me but about Sylvia. I am doing it for my sister in Africa because God has called me to do so. It is not a bidding that is hard to do at all. I love every second of it!
Do you have a sponsor child? What was the last things you shared with him/her when writing?
