I requested an inquiry for a family gift I have sent to Raymond after 6 months. It took 8 months for me to receive a thank you letter from Raymond. However, the letter was written by his teacher. Raymond is turning 15 years old in a week. I expected him to write his own thank you letter. This is also 6th month since he last wrote to me. I write to him every month. I am surpised that I got a thank you letter in 8 months and it was written by his teacher. I am not sure why he cannot write his own letter. He is my correspondent child and I expected this to be a letter writing relationship.
And its really hard to have a relationship when all letters have same contents saying I am very happy to write you this letter. And then talking about his school started, he passed an exam, going to be in grade 10. And then the letter ends. Same prayer request about him doing well in school. This is all the information I am getting from a letter from him every time. My questions are also never answered.
I remember when I first started with Raymond, he hasnt written to his paying sponsor for 8 months and someone from this forum had to request an inquiry for him to write and that letter to be sent quickly to me. And it was the first letter I got from him last year.
And this time, it is very frustrating especially the fact that someone else wrote for him in 8 months (and 6 months since he last wrote to me) after I requested an inquiry for a family gift.
