So, I am not at home right now. :) I am in the beautiful country on Bolivia. And I got the pleasure to see a really great friend of mine named Abraham. He had been busy caring for his siblings, but was able to stop and talk with us for a few minutes. He said that he greeted us with peace of the Lord Jesus Christ. And he was ecstatic for the photos and stickers and books that his sponsor had recently given him. He really enjoyed them and thought they were very nice. He was telling us that on Christmas he helped his mother cook dinner, and he was telling us about the struggles that his sponsor was having recently with being in the hospital and how she was having problems with her brain, and he said that he really hoped that her brain is well and that she didnt have any problems. :) I noticed that he was all bundled up in warm clothes and he said that it has been very cold lately. And he asked me how the weather is in Florida, and I explained that to him. He told me that his sponsor had also said that she had hurt her nose (I'm guessing his sponsor is a real klutz) and that he prays that she would get better and heal soon. Before we left, we had asked him if there was anything that we could pray about, and he said he really wanted us to pray for his previous sponsor. I didn't ask why he wanted us to pray for him, but he did say that he wanted his life to go well and that he wouldn't turn away from God. He told us that he really hoped that we had had a good Christmas with our families. He said that now Christmas and New years are over, he is back in school. He asked us when our birthdays are and that he wanted us to know that his birthday is May 11. He had told us in the past that his family might be having problems, and i was praying for that, and he said that now there are no problems in his family. and that thanks to God, there were no problems in his family. He said he was giving thanks to God to hear that his sponsor was doing better. He was really worried about her. He said that his brother, Alfredo, went into military training, and that is makes him sad because he misses him allot. He said that his birthday was May 6 and he turned 20. He told us that his brother, Kevin, has a birthday in April 26th. And he said that his little sister's birthday is June 22nd, and his younger brother's birthday is April 20th. And he said that he heard that his sponsor and her sister fight allot. :) and he said that he is praying that that situation improves. We conveyed out goodbyes and he said that he loved his sponsor and that he said he always signs each letter with "with love, Abraham"

I hope to get to talk to him some more soon. This is the longest ive had to wait to hear from him. So I am hoping it wont be another 3 months before i get to see him again. :)
 
 
This is the second travel log for our trip. We were in Bolivia recently, and we had met up with one of our Bolivian spotlighted kids named Brayan. Well, we were going to have a conversation with him but there was no translator, and the transcript of the conversation wasnt completed. So, I had to send the transcription of the conversation back to headquarters to have it finished. And they said that they were sorry that they didnt have a translator available, but that they invited us back to Bolivia in 10 weeks when there would be a translator and the transcription of the conversation would be available for me to pick up. Its a bummer to have to do all that, but, I am excited for it to be returned to me.

 
 
Hello fellow passengers! This is the first travel log of our trip. Most recently, we went to the country of Bolivia. The country of Bolivia is breath taking. With its lush and vibrant culture, its definitely a sight to see!

We spoke to one of our featured kids named Brayan. He is 6 years old, and he lives with his mother and father. We asked him a few questions, and through the help of his sister, Sandra, this is what he had to say:

Hello dear sponsor Kimberly Warren,
We greet you with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
I'm his sister, Sandra, and I help Brayan write his letter
Brayan is happy and grateful for the sponsorship that you give him
Brayan is doing well at school and he has many friends called: Luis, Jose, Cristian, and Melani.
Brayan likes playing soccer and tag, his favorite food is baked chicken. 
He wanted to ask you questions. What food do you like eating
best?
We'll say goodbye with much affection, may God bless you.
Sandra (sister)

It was very interesting hearing of the experiences of a 6 year old in a country that just begs for help from a loving sponsor. I was able to talk to him and explain to him my favorite food is sushi. And it was nice to explain to him what it was.

If you feel compelled to sponsor a lovely boy like Brayan feel free to use a free laptop, as provided by this airline, to go to www.compassion.com to help a needy child just like Brayan.
