Well done, Ostine!
Below are some of the letters sent to Ostine
from the children of St Chad's School in Pattingham.
This is the reply we received from Ostine at
the end of February 2007...
in the middle of 2006, a card was sent to Ostine with a gift
of a new T-shirt and shorts. It seems that these got delayed
by it being returned to the Field Office, even though the address
was correct. This delayed news of Ostine. Sue Bellingham received
a letter explaining all of this with a letter and photograph
from Ostine showing him wearing his new clothes.
Here is what the letter said...
Much and very warm greetings are coming to you from your sponsored
child, Ostine Odhiambo. He is feeling super fine and healthy
and hope that you are also well with your family. The weather
around this place is not hot and not cold but moderate as the
climate has changed.
He really wish to thank you so much in the name of our Lord for
the special gift of card, short and T-shirt that you sent to
me. He was very impressed as they were actually a nice garments
for him. He also want to thank God who is always with you and
your family and hope that he will continue to bless and support
you most for your good work.
His birthday was successful as there was only peace and happiness
throughout the occasion. He is wishing you and your family a
nice time over there.
