Hello Lt. George Sanders.
My name is Aaryn Samuels I’m 8 years old and attend Carson Elementry in Puallup Washington. We are doing a class project where we are given an American soldier to right and pray for. Some of the studants don’t like that they are asked to pray, but I know its sumthin the Lord’s asked of us, and its an importint thing to do. To be honest I’m nervos writing you this letter, not because I don’t know you, but becus I don’t know what to write. I know it must be nothin like fighting in a big war. Where theirs bad guys with guns. That’s why I pray for you everyday Lt. George. My teacher, Ms. Ackerman was talking bout sending gifts for the soilders. She said we cant send electroniks, only things like toothpast and little debbys and cards she said we are going to send them out next month, that if we want we could ask are solider what he wants most. So Lt. George what do you want? When I was praying and reading the bible the other night the lord gave me an idea, and I axed my mom, and she said yes! So we are gonna send you a bible! I really hope you read it, I know alot of people don’t believe or even like reading but Jesus will be there for you, cus he loves you I know it. And I’m praying for you, and God answers prayers. Well I better go Lt. George, my mom is calling me for dinner, oh before I go I just wanna say thanks for keeping me and my family safe and for being a soldier.
Your friend Aaryn.
I grow up as a young boy with god very much at the heart of my life, but when I was a teenager my life changed. My parents divorced and my mother passed away from cancer all in the same year, I lost touch with my dad, because all we shared was a house and the same hate that fueled us. I had not prayed or read a bible in years, but when that bible come in, I read it cover to cover. I started praying everyday for me, my platoon and my family. I and most of my platoon was making it home to our families and friends. Aaryn and I had also kept a steady flow of letter in the last few months, he was a sweet kid he always addressed me as Lt. George. Now that I am home I only have one prayer that I would get to meet my pen pal Aaryn and thank him.
Aaryn was right, God does answer prayers, because when I got off the plane, not only was Elaine and our daughter Riley there, but there also stood Ms. Samuels and Aaryn…My wife had planed it all without my knowledge and it was one of the greatest surprise of my life.
Authors note all errors in the letter are on purpose because the kid is only eight and is still learning spelling and grammar. Anything else is of my error.
