"I cannot hide my joy as I say thank you to have you as my sponsor and friend. I am so happy for what you write to me every time. "
"I thank you for the letters you have send to me. They are nice. I have learned the ten commandments and memorized them again and again to stick in my mind." 
"In our country it's too hot and dry. We thank God we had food from our farms sufficient for our family this time. The main crops that are grown are only drought resistant crops." 
"I always pray for you because of supporting me through the project. It provides us with so many things like shoes, school uniform, well balanced diet and paying for our fees." 
"How are you my dear? I cannot hide my joy to have you as my sponsor and my friend. I am so happy for what you write to me every time."
