I hope that you are well. This time I have the opportunity to write to you and thank you once more for the great help that you are giving me. Thanks to you help, I will finish this school year with good grades because I have worked hard. I would also like to say thank you very much for the present (money) that you sent. My parents bought me a present with it which I really like, and they are very pleased that I will be moving up a grade next year.
How are you? How are Leo and your family? Here in my country we are celebrating lent and I imagine that you are too. It starts on Ash Wednesday when we go to mass. The priest marks a cross on our foreheads with ash and then the service continues with all our Lord had to suffer in order to protect us.
I must sign off now and thank God that I have such wonderful people like you who give me financial help so that I can improve myself and become an expert. May god bless you. I love you and carry you in my heart. Please say a special hello to Leo, even though he is far away I always think of him. May God bless him lots and lots and lots.
Letter to my sponsors
From Jonathan Alberto Ponguillo Rizzo
Hello dear Sponsors,
First of all I hope that you are well. I am a little sad because we have to say good bye to school and the teachers. But it is not for long and that makes me feel a little better. However, I am going to enjoy these school holidays as it is carnival time at the moment. I will go to the beach with my family and enjoy the holidays. Dear Sponsors, when will I get to meet you and find out more about you? Please write and send me photos so that I can get to know you. I am now in my 3rd year at school and have not heard anything from you since I started school. I would like to tell you that I am doing well at school and that I got excellent grades in my exams. Dear Sponsors, I would like to say good bye and thank you for your help. Thanks to you I will be able to become someone in life. I am sending you a big hug.

Greetings from your sponsored child, Juan. I wish you and your family a very happy 2014 with all my heart.
My Sponsor Ina, I hope that you and your family are well. I am very happy because thanks to your help, my brother and I now both sleep very well. My dream of having my own bed has come true.
I would like to tell you that I am well. On 14th February we had our own Olympic Games and I played ball with my friends.
There are only a few weeks left until I have completed the third year and God willing I will move up into the 4th year. My favourite subject is mathematics and I also like to paint. School is quite hard but with your help I will continue to make progress so that I can finish school, get a great job and have a better life together with my family.
Thank you dear Sponsor for the money you send. My mum has already written and told you that we will spend the money on trips in the holidays. We will buy ourselves something nice as a souvenir.
I say good bye to you in the hope that I will hear from you soon. Bye, lots of kisses and hugs, and may God protect you, and don´t forget that I love you. Until the next time.
