Letters to Venezuela

Ben —  July 12, 2011 — 11 Comments

On the 3rd day of our trip, I was inspired to get some of the readers here to write a letter or 2 to these boys, to give them some encouragement as they go through the program over at Project Jonas. You can read about it a little more here, and here.

To say you met our expectations with your response, would be a complete and utter lie. Although this project may have seemed a bit ambitious at first, that should not have given me the excuse to think that 1, not 40 people would write letters. You see I was once told to never underestimate your audience no matter the medium

This was definitely an example of that.

After much work from our friends Desiree, Italo, and probably a few more people that I didn’t know about, the letters finally arrived, and they captured it all for us and posted these shots on facebook:

Although sending us these pictures was not necessary, we are and will be eternally grateful to have played a small part in each of these boys lives.

To all the people who wrote, thank you so very much.

  1. Enjoyed browsing through these pics. Thanks for sharing, Ben (and for the opportunity). Their faces are priceless!

  2. Au contraire… Thank you Ben. You took a nudge and made it personal and even invited us to be part of it. That’s great.

    Thanks!

  3. Amen! Thanks again for letting me be a part of this, Ben. It was one of the best things I’ve been able to do this summer 🙂

  4. The kid with the “shh” t-shirt is totally cracking me up! Looks like it was a great experience for them.

    • I didn’t even think twice until you pointed it out, LOL freakin hilarious, especially even more so that I actually know him (Aaron).

  5. What a great experience – thank you for bringing us through the door of your journey.
