Mail Call, from Tanzania

The mailbox has been empty for a couple of weeks, but the other day we found one of those off white envelopes.  I love the stationary that is used by the student centers in Tanzania.  Cheerful Greetings indeed.
 
With this letter there was a drawing, and what appears to be a report card!
 

 
This part of child sponsorship is continuing to produce benefits in our home.  While we write letters of encouragement, it's the letters we receive that seem to work a change in us.  The opportunity to "know" these kids, to see that while they live in a very different set of circumstances, they are JUST LIKE US."  A kinsmen ship has developed.  An ownership of this family ministry is blossoming in each member.  With each letter that goes back and forth, we are the ones blessed to be in these relationships!
