Check out this great blog (and a give-away!)

Letter Day (Tadele)

(Recieved yesterday 4/11/11)

Dear Dan & Julie,

Hare are you doing? He and his family are fine.

He celebrated Christmas well with his family and friends having with bread, pop-corn, bread at home. He enjoyed it.
He is so thankful for your letter and picture. He is so happy. He is 4 years old. (Today is actually his birthday! He's 5! Happy birthday buddy!)

Hi is so thankful for your Christmas gift of $239.15 birr. He bought sports wear with 130.00, shoes with 100, and coffee with 9.15 for his mom.  Awwww!! He thanks you for your provision of food supplies.

Do you have a cow, dog, or cat?

Pray for him to be a smart student. (Last I knew he wasn't in school because his parents couldn't afford to send him. I wonder if he's going now?)

His fingerprint is on the signature line.

By the way, I recieved a letter recently that his name was incorrectly spelled on his Compassion paperwork. It's Tadele, not Tadesse.
