The letter I have been longing for!

We went to Florida last weekend! We were able to see Mike, his wife Amber, my Auntie Sharon and some cool friends that we haven't seen in a while! It was great! We were able to go to Grace Conway, the church my brother helped plant and leads worship at. That was one of the highlights. It was awesome!

Well, when we got home we had mail. .  and not just any mail... Compassion mail!! I got a letter!! I was crazy excited ( as I always am when I get letters). I opened it and IT WAS FROM REGITA!

If you have been reading my blog a while you know I have been waiting to receive a letter from my sweet Regita from Indonesia. I haven't received a letter from her in over six months! That is a long time for letters with Compassion! I was worried. I was so relieved to hear from her!

The letter is awesome! Here are a few of my personal favorite parts. . .

Hi, Sister Alyssa, 
            . . .  I really enjoy the gift that you sent me especially your beautiful photos. . . I am happy and wonder to hear that you can eat fried rice like me. I heard that only a few of American people like to eat my country dishes. . . I like the song titled " Little Samuel" and often sing it. ( So cute!) My family and I are doing well. . . I like playing jump robe together with my friends. I have no pets because there is no ( not) enough space in my house for having any pets but, I like butterflies. . . I hope my letter finds you in good condition. Love regards in Christ. 

Isn't that awesome?!? I am so thankful for this letter and for this precious girl God has placed in my life! I am so blessed with my three girls. 

I pray I can bless them as much as they bless me! 

All for Him,

It's hard when you don't hear from them very often. I'm so glad you finally got a letter from her. Hopefully the next one isn't too far behind this one!
