letters from Mugwaneza

Last week, we received a letter from our Mugwaneza in Rwanda!
She is still young, so her letters are written by a helper. It is always interesting to look at the letters, because they are written in an African language before they are translated. Here is what is written:
Dear Jessica,
Your daughter Mugwaneza Janviere is greeting you in the name of Jesus Christ. She is so happy to write and inform that they are all fine. It's dry season here. She helps parent at different household activities. She got 60% marks. She will move on to grade 4. Janviere has 2 brothers and 2 sisters. She goes to Sunday school and sings in the choir. She loves and always prays for you. Janviere wishes you merry x-mas and a happy new year. God bless you!
It is so sweet that it says 'your daughter'. We think of Dominic, Eyouel, and Mugwaneza as family, and I pray they know that we are an extended part of their family. We would gladly take any one of them into our home and love on them so hard! We do our best to love on them across the ocean, encourage them, make them smile, and share God's love with them.
