June 2, 2012

Hi, my name is Jane Doe, and I have known the Jones family since before Christy was born. So I’ve been able to enjoy Christy as a baby until the present and hopefully for many more years. She and my daughter, Susan, have been good friends, and I had the privilege of helping to teach Christy some of her school subjects for a couple of years. I know her as a dear friend and as a pupil.

I believe that Christy would benefit greatly from being at the Christian school I’ve heard so much about. She is very bright, talented, and tender-hearted, and would also be an asset to the other young people in her classes. I think the structure of a godly classroom setting would help her grow in her ability to focus on her studies and her relationship with God. She is a “people person” who would respond positively to the opportunity of learning and maturing with others near her age. The chance to study in a different cultural setting than her own could also be a very broadening experience for her.

I think this would be a tremendous blessing for Christy and for those who would be touched by her life as well.
