final letter...

May the peace of the Lord lavish on you. How are you my beloved sponsor? Thank you for the photo of mine you sent me. I like reading the Bible. It has a main role in my life. I would like to work in Compassion because there are many kids who have social, spiritual and economical problems. I want to help them.  
God used you to set me free and broght me to light. God bless you. It's been two months since I began a job. I'm teaching from grade 5-8. I am really grateful to you for what you have done for me.  
I do pray for you to keep up your good deeds. My staying in the project is over. I hope we'll meet one day. God bless you richly. I love you. Bye.
