What Your Sponsored Child Wants to Hear From You

letter writing ideas Sponsored children are very grateful and consider themselves blessed to have sponsors who love them and write to them. The children are touched by the affection you express to them in your letters and the prayers you share with them.

They like when you pray for them and ask them to pray for you in return.

They love when you express your love for them and declare a blessing on their lives. And when you encourage them to study hard.

Most of the children are curious to know more about your lives, families and studies, if you are pursuing any, and also hope to one day meet you face to face. General topics the children like to know about also include religion and the general lifestyle of the western world.

The children of Rwanda are filled with glee when they share about the letters they receive from you.
