Eternally grateful

Here is a touching letter from a godchild to his godparents.

Hello John and Rosemary,

It gives me great pleasure that you, my favorite Godparents, are always caring for me and my sisters. It has been eight long years since we arrived at NPH and without you, I don’t believe that I would be the person I am today.

I am currently finishing my second year of service. During my first year, I worked in the kitchen and this year, I am responsible for the swimming pool. In July, I will actually move to the NPH house in Monterrey, Mexico and begin studying law at the university. I will be 21 years old on May 2nd and am not quite sure what I want to do. I wanted to study Foreign Languages but none of the universities I can attend offer that major other than English. I am not sure if you are aware but I love music and have dreamed about becoming a musical artist.

I am proud to have you as my Godparents and consider you to be my family, my favorite grandparents, and for that, I’ll be eternally grateful. Although I do not know you personally, I thank God for placing you in my life.

Thanks to God, my sisters who are now 19 are doing well and are in their first years of service. Two of them take care of the smaller children and one of them washes the dishes after the meals.

I leave you knowing, that I remember you in my prayers and hope that you had an excellent Holy Week.

With much love, 

your Godson,
