a letter to god summary

Lencho was a farmer who lived in an isolated house on the top of a low hill in a valley. The river and the field of ripe corn scattered over the area with flowers were clearly seen from his house. Lencho looked at the sky towards the north-east as the earth needed a downpour. Soon he discovered huge mountains of clouds approaching in the sky. Lencho predicted that there would be a downpouring shower. It happened so. It started raining. Lencho came out to feel the rain on his body. He was overwhelmed and thought of raindrops as new coins. 

           Lencho's happiness didn't last long as a strong wind began to blow with heavy rain. Large hailstones began to fall along with showers of rain. The boys enjoyed themselves by collecting the frozen pearls. It continued to fall for an hour and covered the whole valley. 

              The effect of the hailstorm was disastrous. The corn was totally destroyed. Len was extremely depressed to see the destroyed corn field and told his sons that they would go hungry throughout that year. Still everybody in that family had a single hope, help from God. All through the night, Lencho only thought about the help from God because He is omniscient. Lencho was a farmer, still he knew how to write. He decided to beg God for some help. The following Sunday he wrote a letter to God, He asked God for a hundred pesos so that he would sow his field again and live until the harvest of the next crop. He wrote the letter and dropped it into the mailbox. 

             The postman of the post office was astonished to see that curious letter which was addressed to God. He showed it to the postmaster. Both broke out laughing. The postmaster was wonderstruck to know the deep faith of the man in God, His curiosity to know the contents made him open the letter because he had resolved to answer it in order not to shake the writer's faith in God. He found that the writer had asked for some financial help. So he cơllected some money from his employees and he himself also contributed a part of his salary. 

            Of course he couldn't collect the required amount of hundred pesos, but he was able to send the farmer a little more than half. He put the money and a letter containing only a signature : God in an envelope addressed to Lencho. 

               Lencho came to that post office the following Sunday to ask if there was a letter for him. The postmaster himself handed over the letter to Lencho. He opened it confidently. He was not all surprised on seeing the money. He counted the money and got angry because there was not the full amount that he asked for. He knew that God couldn't have made a mistake. He was so innocent that he considered it a fact. He wrote another letter to God confessing that he had received only seventy pesos out of 100 pesos. He also requested to send the rest amount to him directly instead of sending it through mail because he didn't have faith in the dishonest postal employees.
