Celebrate the Fall Season With Your Sponsored Child

the fall season We are enjoying the last bits of summer here in central California, where I live with my family. But we are quickly moving into the fall season as kids head back to school, thoughts of homemade soups and bread fill my head, and I start thinking about pulling out the warmer clothes as we head into cooler weather.

But I have to wonder what the weather is like for my Compassion kids this time of year. Do they experience a change of seasons as we do?

And do they start back to school in September as they do here in the United States, or does their school year start during a different month?

This month in our Second Friday Letter Writing Club [3], we are going to focus on two themes: “Back to School” and “Fall”!

In your letter to your sponsored child this month, you could ask some of the questions above. Or how about a couple of these:

Do you need some ideas on how to pray for your sponsored child as he or she attends school? How about this pin that uses different colors as prayer prompts:

Do your kids like to doodle? Take them for a walk to collect some small fall leaves, then use the pins below as inspiration for making their own leaf doodles to mail to your sponsored child:
