When we first became sponsors five years ago, we headed to the library to check out a book about Colombia. We didn’t know a lot about the country, and since my children were 15 and 10 at the time, it was the perfect time for all of us to learn more about our sponsored child’s country.
The Compassion “Where We Work” webpage is also a good source for learning more about your sponsored child’s country.
You can learn about how long we’ve been working in that country, how many child development centers there are, and how many children are being served there. And you can also read about the country’s history, find out what the typical foods are, and learn some typical greetings in your child’s language.
As curious as we are about the countries where we sponsor children, I know the children in the child development program around the world are curious about our country too.
And this makes a great letter-writing topic to share this month for our Second Friday Letter Writing Club…the United States of America!
Share your world with these fun U.S.A coloring ideas:
Send your sponsored child a map of the United States and color in the state where you live.
And you can send them one of these coloring pages that focuses on the state where you live.
Have you visited any monuments or famous places? Send your sponsored child one of these coloring pages of historical places as well as photos from your visit.
Are you a member of our Second Friday Letter Writing Club Board on Pinterest? This month you can help us find some great printables and paper ideas about our country to share with our sponsored children.

This is a fun idea Yvonne! I was just thinking this morning about what I want to write about in the next few months. Since my hubby works in a different state from where we live, I think I’ll stretch this idea out over a couple of months and cover both areas!
Thank you Michelle! Those will make some interesting letters for your sponsored children to read 🙂
