I live in a town called Debre Zeit which is 47km from Addis Ababa. There are around 7 lakes and mountains. The weather is nice. When I grow up I'd like to be an accountant.
I am so thankful for your willingness to be my sponsor. Where do you live? I would like to have your picture. How many children do you have? I live with my family. I am 2nd year accounting college student.
How about your weather? Are your children students or workers?
Pray for me to be successful in my education and __?__ to have driving license. Pray that God may help me.
** There are a couple parts I'm confused about. The translator wrote 3 of the same sentences twice. I hope that she didn't miss anything by doing that. His letter seemed longer than that unless he did in fact rewrite things. Regardless I received a beautiful letter from him. I just love him to pieces!
