Have you ever wondered about the real impact of your sponsorship? Below is the final letter written by a formerly sponsored child from Thailand to her sponsor. Her words speak of a young woman with the world at her feet. Be encouraged!
Dear Sponsor (name withheld for sponsor’s privacy),
First of all, may the grace and peace of God be with you and your family for always. Every time I write a letter to you, I am very happy and excited to talk to you again. This time, it is breathtaking and I don’t want to write because it is the last letter I will be able to write to you as I have reached the maximum age for the project.
It has passed by very quickly. I have been given the opportunity to study since I was young. I could study many lessons such as the Thai tutoring when I started primary school, or I could study computers, the guitar and English lessons on Saturdays. I got to join in the summer camp held at the beach, the retreat camp, the youth camp and the evangelism team with my friends each year. Morever, I got to learn about dental care, teenage life and against using drugs. I got to attend the activities with my friends whether on Father’s Day, Mother’s Day, Teacher’s Day, Children’s Day and Thanksgiving. I have improved and changed in every way. From a stubborn girl who couldn’t read and never learned about God, I can now read, write and speak, and most of all I have come to know God and I have Jesus in my life.
The important thing is that I could learn about you and your family. Even though we have never met each other, I can feel the love from you and your family towards me. The love from you and your family is always in my heart and it is unforgettable. I love you and your family so much. I would like to thank you very much for sponsorsing me so that I could study. I can have this day because of you and your family who are among the most important things in my life.
Because of the mercy of God towards me, I am provided with the best in my life. Even though I will not stay with the project any more, I will never forget about it and I will never forget about God’s blessing. You and your family will always be in my prayer. From now on, I will go out to the world I have never been and I will follow my dream and make my dreams come true.
Thank you very much for your love and the gifts, whether it was at Christmas or for my birthday. Thank you for the letters and photos from you. I dont know what I will have to face in the future so please pray for me about my studying in the university too. For the tuition fees and the other expenses, God has provided for me already. Even though you are not my sponsors any more, there are still many children who are looking for your help and sponsorship that they will have a chance to study like me.
Finally, I hope you and your family take good care of your health. May God protect you and your family in your life and in every work for always.
From Daughter Jantakarn.
