She sent me one of my favourite verses!

I am fortunate to be correspondent to a lovely LDP student, Geraldine from Peru.  She is studying to be a teacher. I love to receive her letters are they are full of enthusiasm and affection.

I always love to send my kids verses, but I was so happy when Geraldine sent me this verse in her latest letter yesterday, as it is one of my favourites.

Psalm 37:31
The law of his God is in his heart;
his steps do not slip.

In fact, we had it made into a shirt for our quizzers.  I am going to send her these pictures.

Wise Solomon is in Engineering!

I just received a fantastic letter from my 20 year old student, Solomon from Ethiopia.  Solomon has been a correspondent for just over a year, and this is only my 3rd letter from him, but I feel like it is a 'breakthrough' letter.  Sometimes it takes a few and sometimes it takes several letters before you feel like you are making a connection.  This letter just contained so much excitement!

He says

"I have joined university this year... I am 1st year engineering student. Thanks be to God. You must be happy for making someone to be an engineer. You supported me a lot with God in order to be an important person.  Please pray for me to be successfuly in my university class and to have a blessed mind."

It's so awesome!

I wrote back right away to let him know that I am so proud of him, that his parents named him well.  I also mentioned that my father is an engineer, and my son plans on being on engineer when he gets older.

Even though it had nothing to do with me, I am a proud sponsor mama today :)
