Letter Day! From Vestine

Dated 10/23/2010 (recieved November 27th)

Dear Dan & Julie,

My beloved parents, how are you doing? I am also doing well and my family also is fine. I am now studying in primary six (6) class and I am 17 years old. When I am at home I like cleaning, cooking, and fetching water, then after I play with other children.

I also attend sunday school always and I sing in the children's church choir.

My studies are going on well. My best subjects are mathematics and English. I thank you for being my parents. i will be your good child. My family members send you greetings in Jesus name. May God bless you.

Dedication: Read Isiah 40: 29-31

and along No. 60 from my hymn book. (I'd love to know what this is!)

M. Vestine

Isaiah 40: 29-31 reads
He gives strength to the weary
and increases the power of the weak.
30 Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
31 but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.

She also drew me a picture. The first picture I've recieved from any of the kids! :)
She drew a flower (Says Ururabo)
Another flowers (Says Akarabo)
A bible with a flower (?) (Says Bibilia)
and a bird (says inyoni)

  1. Our Kazihizina Vestine lives in Rwanda, too. So do they all go by the second name?
    Lovely letter. We haven't heard from Kazahizina yet, but look forward to that first letter!
