A mailbox surprise!

Over a year ago, I decided to sponsor a little girl through Compassion International. In March of 2012, I was able to meet Karen, and spend the day with her in Cochabamba, Bolivia. I randomly will receive letters from her. Yesterday's mail contained my favorite letter. I wanted to share it, because it brought so much joy to my heart. It has been translated, so the English is a little bit rough.

"Dear: Michelle
Hello Michelle, I greet you with our Lord's peace. Karen is taking care well of her Princesa and she gives it a bath and plays a lot. Karen's dog is well and Karen gives her dog a bath and takes care of it a lot. Karen remembers a lot of all the things that you and her had together and also Karen remembers well how you played in the park together and remembers that you swing together and how she slide with her princess. I dismiss with a strong hug of our Lord Jesus Christ and our Jesus takes care of you a lot wherever you go and find, with love.
Karen's sister"

A girl on a different continent remembers that I played on the slide and swing set with her one day almost a year ago? And she still has the doll I gave her? My heart is full. Is there anything better than investing in people?

I am so blessed. What a sweet surprise in my mailbox!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Love, M
