The Most Beautiful Letter a Sponsor Could Receive!

I was just thinking the other day that I haven't heard from my girls in Colombia for a while. Well, guess what?  I heard from Sara today and her words made me cry with happiness! The words she spoke for me and about her faith in Jesus Christ are the best thing I could have ever asked to hear!

Dear Brandilyn Yoder,

I send you a big hug and wish you God's blessings.  Thank you for having you as my sponsor.  God is good because he brought a person like you to my life.  This month I learned that I'm God's unique and unrepeatable creation like my fingerprints.  The time I've been part of the project, I learned that Jesus is the son of God and He paid for my sins on the cross.  I accepted Him as my Lord and Savior.

To answer your question, we celebrate birthdays in my country with cake and a special meal.  Madrina, how are you?  I received your letter and I like it very much and also the pictures.  The place where you live is beautiful.  There is no snow in Colombia.  Brandilyn, I send you Psalm 40:5 [Oh Lord my God, you have performed many wonders for us.  Your plans for us are too numerous to list.  You have no equal.  If I tried to recite all your wonderful deeds, I would never come to the end of them.]  Thank you for your present.  I bought shoe with it.  I love you very much.

-Sara Agudelo Restrepo

PS: I ask you to pray for me and my family.  I will do the same for you.
