My World 🌎🐓🐔🐤




Jambo! Baraka! My name is namenamenamename and I am a Christian first and a mother second. I love Robin Williams and Dudley Moore. I live on 6.5 acres of country land and keep pet ornamental bantams.

My flock can be viewed here. Yes, those are my chickens!

JanBrettMe Me and one of my Silkies. Daughter My daughter and her Easter Egger.

Although I have a several VIP penpal memberships, I am not here to chat. I am here to exchange handwritten paper barua with friends through the postal system. If you want to exchange handwritten paper barua please message me your postal mailing address and in return I will give your mine.📬︎

I do not do use email or social media such as Google+, Google Hangouts, Facebook, WhatsApp, Snapchat, Tumblr, Instagram, twitter, pinterest, LinkedIn, pixiv, deviantart, Flickr, Vine, or myspace.

I do not collect penpals. I am not on swap-bot to see how many "hearts" "5s," or "comments" my profile achieves. I am on swap-bot to do the opposite. To unplug. To find meaningful and genuine friendships that will last a lifetime. I do not participate in "small talk" or chitchat. I do not ask "How are you doing" just out of politeness. I honestly want to know. I am not a flaky penal who writes one barua and then disappears. I always reply to each and every barua. I always answer all of your questions.


I love letter writing. Snail mail means "polepole barua" or mail ya posta. I am looking for snail mail pen pal friendships. barua writing with pen✎, paper, envelop ✉, and stamp 📬, is one of my favorite hobbies. I am old school where a handwritten barua is friendship written in words.✐✉ I am an honest mungu fearing woman who is praying for new friendships.CompassionOneCompassionTwo WorldVisionOneWorldVisionTwoshirokumasfriendreal penguintonkatsu

I love child sponsorship, packing operation Christmas child shoe boxes, antiques, puzzles, photography, elliptical trainers, horseback riding, hiking, scuba diving, hot air balloons, roller coasters, Christian music, Chinese food, white chocolate and black licorice candy.


I am a proud sponsor mother to 13 kids, in 7 countries, on two different continents, through three separate organizations (7 World Vision, 5 Compassion International, and 1 Unbound). I absolutely adore letter writing, but unfortunately not all of my kids share my enthusiasm for the craft. I snail mail hundred of letters only to receive a small amount at irregular intervals. I am seeking pen pals in the following countries: Burkina Faso, Congo - Democratic Republic of, Ghana, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, and Philippines as I am genuinely interested in these countries and in the people who live there.

Comment: Thank you for the lovely card with a nice long message! Loved the walrus sticker too :D
Response: ஜ۩۞۩ஜ WELCOME EMMA ஜ۩۞۩ஜ I am so glad you liked the postcard. It was so much fun to decorate. My little turquoise walrus and seaweed doodle looked more like a seal. I had to fix that. HAHA. Me and my daughter were in the store shopping for light bulbs when we passed the greeting card sections. We both noticed the blue walrus sticker that said "I'm over it" and together we said, Emma! It was perfect! Hugs, Lora

aimeedillon rated for OMG THAT WAS A LONG SURVEY #2 on Aug 30, 2019
Comment: Thanks for your letter I’m sorry about your car and your birthday gift to yourself :( that’s the worst. I want to visit Africa, too, I want to see all the animals. Also, who wants to go in a rocket ship! No thanks! Haha
Response: ஜ۩۞۩ஜ WELCOME AIMEE ஜ۩۞۩ஜ Thanks about the car on my birthday, but it will be fine. Parts arrived, car is in the shop today. It could be a whole lot worse...like no car! Thanks sweetie, I am so glad you like your letter.
Comment: Your letter was the prettiest and most fun that I've read in a long time. I didn't realize treadle sewing machines were that hard to come by, so glad you found one that you love. I learned to sew at age 7 on momma's old Singer treadle machine. They'er tough machines and they love making dolls.
Response: ஜ۩۞۩ஜ WELCOME DOSKIE ஜ۩۞۩ஜ I am so glad that you enjoyed your letter. It was so much fun to make. Giving and receiving pretty letters makes me happy. Treadle sewing machines are not necessarily hard to come by, I am just picky about investing that kind of money. If I am going to purchase an antique I expect it to function properly, otherwise why buy it? You have experience operating one? Fantastic! How do I keep my leather belt from rubbing the inside of the metal belt guides that it is fed through?
Comment: Thanks you for the beautiful images!! So cute!!🙏

I love my handwriting, it is pretty, loopy, and "flowery". I only create pretty handwritten paper letters. Period. None of my letters are ever typed. My letters are written on pastel ruled paper that is 8.5" x 11.75" big. I always write on both front AND back of each page. The average length of my letters are five pages long. Each letter is written in special colored ink. Each and every page is highly decorated with drawings and stickers of images on the subject I am currently writing about. To complete the letter, I personally decorate the front AND back of the envelope. All of my letters are mailed in 6" x 9" manila clasp #55 envelopes. I love writing letters and if my words matter then I want them to be positive, edifying, joyful, and inspiring.

Thank you for mentioning the organization Unbound on your profile Lora. I did not know it existed and I have just emailed them to ask if sponsors can also be from outside the US (I am based in Europe). I look forward to helping as much as I can one of these children to complete their education.
