May God bless you and your family every day! My family and I are very well, and I hope that you are doing well too. I will tell you about Woman's Day. In my country it was celebrated on March 8th, and many women marched wearing black clothes in order to represent every woman who has been mistreated or abused so that the violence against the women stops and they are respected and loved because they are a special living being. About your question: yes, I like to read. The only true God is the one who created the heavens and the earth. Yes, I know that Baal didn't answer the prayers from the people and that the humid wood doesn't burn. That was why Elijah threw water on the wood because he knew that God would burn it with His poiwer. God responds to the people's requests when they have faith and worship Him.

Did they celebrate Woman's Day in your country? I ask you to pray for all the women around the world.

Beloved friend Krueger, how are you doing? We wish you happy new year 2011 and to experience God's peace in it.

With your daughter, we are doing well at home and we were very happy to hear that you take the initiative to visit and preach the good news about Jesus.

Your daughter likes to pray and she normally goes with her mom and brother to pray every Friday. She needs much of your prayers for her to excell in class and to grow up with a desire to serve God.

Finally we leave you with God's blessings. Dedication to you in Isaiah 50:7-10

It has been your child who always thinks about you.

I send you Easter greetings in the Mighty name of Jesus Christ hoping this letter will find you well. I am also fine. I love you so much and always pray that God blesses you. How did you celebrate Easter? As for me, I went to church, sang songs of praise to GOd for having sacrificed his only son Jesus. Many scriptures were read including Luke 20 which is about Jesus being raised. This is very encouraging for Christians to keep on pressing toward the goal. I am in grade 6 now. I am doing my best that I may achieve my ambition of becoming a doctor. Pray for me to succeed academically. My best suject is English. I love is because this is the only language I can use while communicating to you. Every Saturday I do enjoy being at my Compassion project because we are involved in so many activities such as spiritual health and skilled lessons. In spiritual we learn the word of God and to be obedient to our parents. In my pottery skill I am able to mold a small pot with less supervision. This happens through your regular monthly support. As I am writing this lettter, I can received school shoes, uniform, and bathing and washing soaps. May God add you more as it is written in Proverbs 11:24-25. Read it and you will be blessed.

Kenya is looking forward to a new Constitution. Citizens aged 18 and who have registered as voters will go for the referendum in August 4th. Please pray for us to get new laws. We have been having the old constitution since independence when our constitution was writtten. When was yours written?

Greetings in Jesus name. I want to thank you for the letter and for the greeting that you sent me. Abraham's history is really beautiful. It's wonderful to learn about God's word.
