Larry and Ephrahim
Meet Larry and Ephrahim. These two school boys are in third grade at Iruri Primary School in Kenya and are pen pals with my nephew, Jayden and his neighbor, Michael, here in California. Last May I met Larry and Ephrahim and set the wheels in motion for communication between the four boys. Jayden and Michael sent letters initiallly and these two boys wrote back. Jayden was so excited that he wanted to send another letter through the mail, along with Michael and the letters were delivered to the boys by Geoffrey, the Headteacher. My friend Karin, who just visited, was able to bring letters back and sent them from Germany where she lives. Jayden and Michael were thrilled this week to receive these new letters! Someday I hope these four boy will be able to meet. In the meantime they are learning a lot about one another far across the ocean.
