It's my first letter from Patricia, the little girl I sponsor through Compassion International (I knew it would take a sweet forever; letters go to headquarters and must wait for translation before they are sent to a sponsored child. Then, children at the centers write letters and the process is reversed). From her letter,I learned that she loves to eat pupusas, so yes, I have already searched for a recipe and will be attempting to make them so I can experience a bit of her culture. She is also praying for me, for God's blessings and strength and wisdom. How sweet to know that a little soul and I are bringing each other's needs to God's attention. I am so appreciative to Compassion for that.
I love that she drew this picture on the back; shows that a child in El Salvador is really not so different from a child our country, doesn't it? Now...off to finish a letter to her! I think I'll include some photos (my drawing skills would horrify her!).
