It is interesting that 9 year old Daniel asks if we have cotton in America. I didn't know they have cotton crops in Zambia! We are both learning from each other! What a beautiful world we live in!

Elie is a sweetheart. She didn't write much in this letter, but it is always fun to hear about what she likes. With a superpower, she would like to make a garden because she loves vegetables =) Too cute!

Twelve year old Fanwell is a child that I share with Mack. He has been extremely ill but looks much better now that he has been sponsored for a few months. I am waiting for the results of his medical exam, but he will get treatment for anything that ails him. I am anxious to see how he improves after a year or so of sponsorship.

Of all 20+ letters we received this week from CHILDHOPE-ZAMBIA, this letter was Jaden and Morgan's favorite! Eight year old Tubi told them that she was praying for them and that she loves them. Jaden said, "Did she really say that?!" When I told her "yes, that is what her letter says, " Jaden had tears in her eyes.

Edward recently turned 11 years old on my birthday in January. Last year in the fall, I sent him information on fall festivals, pumpkins, etc. I, also, gave him a pumpkin to color and asked him if they had pumpkins in Zambia. This was his response to me. I am learning every day!!

I love his latest picture because he is wearing the soccer outfit that I bought him and holding the soccer ball that I purchased in Zambia (via the gift shop for only $6!) I hope my letters and presents plus sponsorship gifts show him that someone far away loves him and cares about him. I wish I could mail him a hug, and this has to be a rough time for him!
