Love in Letters: Big Hugs and Lots of Love

I’ve fallen into the habit, when writing to my sponsored children, of using the same closing to my letter every time. I always write, “I send you big hugs and lots of love.”

So when I received this letter from 18-year-old Edwin in Uganda today, I was touched to see my own familiar closing. 

Edwin ended his letter: 

“God bless you and your family. I send you big hugs and lots of love.”


Edwin, 18, Uganda

Edwin writes in English, and often shares many interesting details of his life. In this letter, I learned that Edwin’s grandparents celebrated “Golden Jubilee” in August, which was their 50th wedding anniversary. A church service including all the grandchildren was part of the celebration, and Edwin composed a song on a keyboard and sang it at his grandparents’ party.

Edwin also let me know that Manchester United is his favorite soccer team, and he listed some of his favorite players.

This young man is serious about his studies, and always asks for prayers that he do well in school. I look forward to seeing where God leads him in the future and am thankful to know him.
