One day at the post office last week Elliana was wishing she would’ve gotten mail. I think she actually gets more mail than a lot of four year olds, but who doesn’t want to get something exciting in the mail everyday? The lady at the post office told her she should write someone a letter if she wants to get one. I wonder if that lady is just trying to save her job, but it was still a great idea.
We’ve spent the last couple of days talking about who we should write. Then this idea that I think is inspired (not something I could come up with on my own) hit me.
We should find a little missionary girl to write.
My world view is pathetic. Now I live where we help to feed the world, but we see very little of it. If I don’t figure something out my world view will get even more pathetic. I worry about this for my children and have often wondered about what I could do to help them have a better world view than myself, especially living where we see so little of the world.
That’s why this idea is so exciting to me. Don’t you think it would be a win-win situation if we found a preschooler living in another country that would be interested in being Elliana’s “pen pal”?
Anyone have any ideas of who that could be? Comment or email me if you do!
