You won't believe it!

So....... Yesterday when I went to the mail box ( Can you guess ;) a letter was waiting for me! I was so excited. I had no clue who it was from because I just recieved letters from both my girls last week. Well.... It was from Sweet Jazzy Rain! :)

I usually recieve letters from Mrs. Priscila, Jazzy's mom..... but this was written by sweet Jazzy. It was her first time writing me. :). It was precious...... as all my letters are. :) 

She drew me a picture.......

So talented.

Jazzy told me a lot about her project, Kings kids Student center in the Philippines. There are 276 attending her project. Jazzy gets to her project riding her tricycle. When she is at her project she usually eats rice meal with viand. I have to google that. :) Her favorite things to do at the project is to Memorize verses, Sing, and play. Her is what she wrote me......

Dear Alyssa Price, Hello have a pleasant good day, to you and your family. Thank you you very much for sending a beautiful messege to me and supporting me in compassion and also your prayers to me. Merry Christmas.

Jazzy wrote her letter in english. I am so proud of her. I love her so much. She is a little princess.

All for him,

Another Letter!!!!!!

Yeah I know it has been a long time since I have blogged.  I have been very busy with school and other stuff. :(

Well....... Thursday on the way home from seeing the childrens choir ( with Claire and a few other bffs) my mom got a call from my little brother. When she got off the phone she said Wes told her that a letter for me came in the mail!!! Claire can tell you I went crazy excited cause I did. ;)

When we got home a letter from sweet Jazzy Rain was sitting on my bed!

So cool!!!
 Mrs. Priscila, Jazzy mom, writes me because Jazzy is too young and Mrs. Priscila can speak and write english so there is no translation is needed.

Dear Alyssa Price, Hello have a nice day ( that is how she starts all her letters:). Thank you very much for the reply letter to Jazzy Rain. You know she is very happy to read it and looking at your picture. She already finished her first the first period in test in school and every Saturday she attends the K.K.S.C. our compassion student center class and enjoying listening to the teacher about the memory verse and story telling about Jesus.( I am so proud of her) Happy birthday to you this coming Aug, 27, 2011. This coming Oct, 1, 2011 Jazzy Rain celebrates her 8th birthday. Thank you for praying for Jazzy every night and as treated as one of your younger sister. ( That made me tear up) Please pray for Jazzy Rain for given a bright mental ability as well as her brother and sister  so that they can gain more high grades in school. How about you miss Alyssa? How many are you in the family? What is the work of your parents? Jesus will abide you on your daily routine work. More power and Jesus loves you

I love this girl and this lady so much. They are amazing and I tell them in every letter. Have you recieved a letter from you child lately. I would love to hear about it.

Please pray for Aljane!

Aljane is one of the filipinos from the Children of the World choir. We got news last night that Aljane's house burnt down.

Isn't she beautiful.

Right now Aljane is living in a gym. Her family can not afford to build another house. She lives with her parents, grandparents, and little brother.

Aljane lost all her pictures in the fire.... Ones of her friend, chaperones, and all the families that she met and stayed with when she was on the tour. Some of the chaperones from the Philippines are going to try and get some pictures together for her for Christmas.

Please pray for Aljane and her family! Pray she will continue to be the happy girl we met two years ago and that through this she will come to love God all the more.

Save a Child fom Malaria!

Today in the mail we recieved a Malaria net from Compassion for my mom to do a presentation on Bite Back

Yep. That is me being protected from mosquitos...... I really don't think I need it :)

But really there are mothers in Africa worried for there children's lifes..... At any moment a child can contract Malaria from a mosquito bite. This is so real to me. Maureen our dear friend from Kenya lost her precious sister from Malaria just two weeks after her nephew past away from T.B...... And Malaria and T.B are both preventable in America.

It is so simple. You can save a life from Malaria just by buying a net for Ten dollars. I am going to. Will you help end Malaria and change a life forever?

All for Him,

We are still praying though! It is still very bad ...a lot of flooding. So many people are not safe. So many have lost loved ones. Please pray.

Sorry so short. Just another plea for prayer for the Philippines

Please pray!

You might have already heard.... A big typhoon has hit the north part of the Philippines and part of China!

I heard yesterday and have not had time to blog til now. I was so worried about sweet Jazzy and her family. We prayed and prayed for them... And are still now.

Today I called Compassion and asked if they knew if Jazzy was ok. The ladie said the typhoon did not hit in the area that Jazzy is in. Praise God! I am soooooo relieved. Jazzy and her family is ok! I am so thankful.

 I am still worried though. We have not heard anything from my friends from ''Children of the World'' choir :(

Please pray with me... for the Philippines.Please pray for the kids and leaders from the choir.

 If you sponsor a child from the Philippines please let me know if they are ok. Or let me pray for them.

All for Jesus,

My princesses Birthday!

Today is My sweet Jazzy Rain's Birthday. She turns 8 today ( Or for her in the Philippines yesterday).

Such a big girl!

It is the weirdest and greatest thing to love someone so much and you haven't even met them.
I want to tell you a little more about this precious little girl.  Jazzy lives with her mother Mrs Priscilla her older brother Texus Kin and her older sister Zaira Claire ( Claire.... just like my friend over at All for Jesus). Jazzy is the baby of her family and the baby of my compassion family too. :)

Jazzy's father passed away in 2005. :(  She is a partial orphan. It makes me heart broken to think of that baby without a father to keep her safe. I love her so much.

Jazzy's favorite food is fried chicken. Her favorite song is Twinkle little star (that is what she called it :). Her favorite color is pink and yellow. She wants to be a teacher. And her favorite verse is Is. 6:36.
Holy Holy Holy is the Lord God almighty. The earth is filled with His glory.

I love her so much and really really hope to meet her. I want to make my senior trip to the Philippines when I am 18. I pray God would make a way for me to do that.

Happy Birthday, sweet Jazzy Rain.
   I love you. <3
