Letter writing tips:

  • Write about yourself – family, pets, friends, etc.
  • Share your hobbies, sports, job, school, church
  • Share your favorite season, holiday, food, sport, Bible verse
  • Write about your relationship with Jesus and about his love
  • Encourage the children to work hard in school and remind them how special they are
  • Share encouraging Bible verses
  • Ask questions about school, favorite games or activities, what life is like in their community

Topics to avoid:

  • Emphasizing gifts you received, material possessions or size of your home or car
  • Suggesting the children visit you in the US or that you will be visiting in Ethiopia
  • Giving your personal phone number, email or mailing address and asking for their information
  • Asking about their past experiences, such as details about their family and what life was like before
