Ever since I knew about Compassion International and their child sponsorship work helping children in impoverished areas of the world, I knew I wanted a child of our own to sponsor. My idea was to find a boy that my son could correspond with, a boy that had something in common with my son.
At first glance, words on pages could seem as though they were merely words, but an 11 year old boy named Sam from Ghana provided a powerful reminder that words prayed over and led by the Spirit have a power and a purpose all their own.
Out of 3,500 letters from our Project Facilitators, we compiled a list of 10 of the most motivating reasons to write your child.
My sponsored child asks me to pray for his studies and please pray for rain for the crops. I toss the letter on the couch and move on with my day. I’ve read it all before and as a city girl the request for rain means little to me.
To help you feel more closely connected with your child, we’re implementing four changes to our correspondence process in the next year.
One sentence from a little girl an ocean away immediately and forever changed my perspective.
The Honduras Compassion office receives an average of 15,000 to 18,000 letters per month. The handling of so many letters and packages requires a well-trained correspondence team. This group of people takes their job seriously and knows well how to manage the pressure of receiving so many letters. Every one of them is an expert in every process and committed to keeping up the good work.
The first letters are a cornerstone to building the new relationship between sponsor and sponsored child. These letters make the sponsorship commitment more personal, and now Vanesa and Alexandra will be waiting to hear back from their sponsors.
