"Dear my mom and dad, Kyler, Savannah and Ethan (the Goins family),
How are you all? I hope you are all doing well. Thank you all for the letters you wrote to me and the book you guys sent for me. One of my favorites was the album. It was such a lovely designed album. And I also love all the pictures in it.
I am praying for you all always for God to guide and protect you all.
Savannah, Kyler and Ethan, how is school going on for you all over there? I hope you are doing well in your work.
How is Gracie? I missed her so much and can't wait until the time I will see her again and I really love her.
Aunty Cathy, Mama Josephine and Aunty Margaret say hello to you. They cannot wait to see you and your family here in Sierra Leone Banta Mokelleh and they are praying for all of you.
I am doing well in school. On the 5th to the 14th of July I am going to take my Basic Education Certificate Examination (BECE). That is the examination that will allow me to go to the tenth grade. It is a national examination and I am really studying very hard for it. So please, Aunty Cathy, Uncle Asia, Kyler, Savannah and Ethan, I really need a prayer from all of you so that I can pass this exam.
Please greet for me all my friends and their families. I really loved them all. Please also say a sweet hello to the Swobodas, the Arguinchonas, the Tesariks and all of my friends at Jefferson Elementary School.
My brothers in my home all say hello to all of you. They too are praying for you always. They can't wait to see you all here in Banta Mokelleh.
Please greet for me all my friends at church (Kids Community) and also my friend Noah. I really do hope that he is coming to visit me. And not only him but everybody else.
I really love you all once more.
Your son and brother,
Tejan Joshua Margay"
