Attitudes of Gratitude

The approach of Thanksgiving makes us consider all that we are grateful for -- so it may be worth hearing why our sponsored children are thankful:

I thank God for your life and for picking me to sponsor me and letting me come to the center. I feel happy to know that someone is worried for my own good. Without knowing you, I feel that I know you, but I know you love me too…” – Helen, age 12, Honduras

“I am very fine here by the grace of God and by the blessing of yours. I am still trying to do much better and work hard from before days. Thanks for making me confident to do my work well. I also want to see your picture. I am very prosperous and happy to receive your letter. Myself also feels very lucky that you are my sponsor. I love you all.” – Shirpa, age 13, India

“My family and I thank you for all the love you have toward me. I ask God to take care of you and of all your family. I thank God every day for giving me the opportunity to be in this project and because he made us to be together. I love you a lot and I carry you inside my heart and mind. I thank you for helping me to reach my dream …I don’t find a way to thank your kindness. I say bye with lots of love and appreciation and wishing that God bless you.” – Maycol, age 9, Honduras

“Hello, how are you? I am good and happy because you love me and want me and I love you a lot, too. And I pray for you so God will care for you and give you peace.” – Darwin, age 12, Dominican Republic

“Thank you very much for your support for my education. May the Lord Father bless your profession. I have secured good grades in the final exam. Your support is the main cause for my success. May the Lord bless all your activities enabling to help poor children like me. I will never forget you.” – Anushan, age 12, Sri Lanka

“I am very happy when I accept your letter. I thought as if we met face to face your word of love and advice forces me to read your letter again and again. Thank you very much! I am very lucky of getting your love. I love you and also pray for you.” – Wasyihun, age 6, Ethiopia

Your sponsored child is so grateful for you. We hope you know how thankful we are for you, too!

I have been to the Dominican Republic on 5 different trips. My heart and soul are changed after each one. The people of Villa Tapia are the sweetest people. They give me more love than I feel I give them. My sponsor child Yanilda is a beautiful sweet young lady now. I've watched you grow over the years and I see God in you eyes. You are such a blessing to me and I thank God for bringing you into my life. I pray for you and your family daily. I pray that you continue to learn all you can in school and in the program. God has a special place for you in this world and in my heart. I miss not seeing you this year but I know that we're still connect even though miles apart thru our mighty God. Tell you family I love them. You are the light of my world thru Christ. HUGS and KISSES to you....
