Dear Sponsor,

My name is Illia and I am eight years old. I live in Rivne. My father is a construction worker, and my mother is on maternity leave. I have a sister, who goes to school and loves dancing, drawing, and singing. My best friend is Roman because he always shares things and plays with me. I am in the second grade, and I like Math. On Christmas, our family gathers to celebrate together. During summer break I play with my friends. I also like apples, and I usually eat some sort of soup or porridge and pastry made by my mother at home. On holidays, my mother bakes cakes and buns. I like drawing and coloring pictures in a coloring book. I dream of becoming a policeman. Dear Sponsor, I am thankful that you decided to help me and my family. I would be very happy to get to know you better, so I look forward to your letter.

Illia is very sociable, open-minded, inquisitive, and vivacious. There are five people in this family: parents and three children. Mykola, Illia`s father, grew up in a disadvantaged family. He used to attend Christian center for young adults in the town of Zdolbuniv, Rivne Oblast. He was going to become a member of the church but then he changed his mind. At the time, he met Viktoriia, Illia`s mother. They currently have three children. They have also started to attend services at Skelia (Eng. Rock) Church. Relationships in the family are sincere and open. Viktoriia is getting more interested in Christianity and becoming more open-minded. Illia`s young parents live separately from their parents, which is good because they try to find ways out of difficult situations together. The family`s financial situation is difficult. Father Mykola is the only one in the family who has a job: he is a construction worker. However, his income is not stable because his work depends on the weather conditions. Besides that, the family rents a one-room apartment, which also puts pressure on their already tight budget. They live modestly and frugally. As has been mentioned, the family rents a small one-room apartment. Their living conditions are safe. Illia and his family really need your support which will show them how much God loves and takes care of them. It will also open their hearts to the Word of God. How great it will be when Illia knows that you are his sponsor.
