Finally!! A Letter from Jack!

I was so happy to open my mailbox today and find a Compassion envelope with the wonderful words, “A letter from your sponsored child” on the outside.  I ripped open the envelope and immediately looked at the bottom for the country code——-PE!  Yes!  Peru.
That means I finally got another letter from Jack.  The last one I received was written in October.  I know that they do not have school in Peru during our winter months, so I’m sure that’s why it took so long for me to hear from him again.
Jack says that he is studying “logic math” and is doing very well.
In his previous letters, he has asked me to write him often because he is lonely, and he has talked about not having a home.  This time, he thanked me for my letters and said that they are beautiful.  :)  He did not mention not having a home, so perhaps that is not a problem now.  I did call Compassion about that after I received his last letter.
I’m so happy to hear from him.  His letters are always so sweet.
And the cool thing is, I can read most of it in Spanish, except that his handwriting is a bit sloppy in places, so I can’t get every word exactly, even after I look at the English translation.
Happy, happy, joy, joy!
