I usually get pretty good letters from Leonia. Short frequently, but she's young. However her most recent letter ends with no closing at all. Also she usually includes a Bible verse back for me. It really just seems like the letter stops half way through. I know most kids write their letters in a practice book and then copy them onto the form. Could the rest of my letter be missing?



Thanks,

Andrea

Andrea, I agree that it looks like a "half" letter. I think Susan and Emily will look into this for you tomorrow.

I love that your letter has pictures of your child on it! (or maybe they're just pictures of random adorable children...?)

Ah shoot! I got excited for a minute thinking that maybe some of the centers were able to upload pics like we are. Still, cool letterhead :-)

Yeah I think they are still old school for pictures at this center. When I get them it's in an envelope stapled to the letter that has the photo inside. :)

Hmmmm...Andrea, that is really strange. To be honest, I have never seen a letter that ends this abruptly before. There is no back-side to this letter? If not, I will send an inquiry to check on the rest of this letter. Thanks so much for letting us know about this!

Nope no back and usually Leonia writes both sides of her letter; the back might not be fully filled out but this is half the length of any other letter from her. She has always had a valediction and for the past year or two has been sending me Bible verses at the end of her letters (like I do in mine to her). This is just very odd.

Thank you for confirming this, Andrea! I just sent an inquiry to check on the other half of this letter. We will let you know as soon as we hear back from Tanzania. :)

Andrea, our field staff in Tanzania just got back to me this morning. Leonia accidentally forgot to finish her letter before turning it in. She has written another letter to you that was just sent to you in the mail from our USA office. I trust that you will receive this full letter very soon. Thank you for your patience.

Thanks Susan. That was what I thought might have happened and I'm glad I'll get to see the rest of her letter :)
