I wish everyone knew that I am okay. Mama misses me, and she just wants me to forgive her. She didn't do anything wrong, though. Jesus and I both still love her.
Father doesn't think that I'm here. But Jesus knew that I love him and took me. If Father understood that, then maybe he'd stop running around in the rain trying to baptize the village children. They're already good. They don't need him. Jesus loves them all.
Mama and my sisters are leaving Father and the village now. It's okay that they're leaving me. I know that they didn't like it here. Before they left, they made a huge show over me. I watched everything! I wanted to tell them that I could hear them- especially when my sisters kept offering up prayer after prayer desperately.
Everything is fine though. I know my family loves me, and they will all be with me together soon.
