In an effort to promote the letter-writing aspect of sponsoring through Compassion International, the second Friday of every month has been named a Virtual Letter Writing Party. If you click that link in red, you’ll go to a post on Compassion’s blog with the details.
As I have mentioned so many times before, your letters to your sponsored children are SO important. Poverty is not just a lack of money, but is a lack of hope and opportunity. A lack of worth. Your letters go a long way to let your child know that they ARE important and worthy. I would love to urge you to write to your children at least once a month. If you don’t know what to write about, check out the links in my right hand sidebar. If you don’t have any goodies or extras to send, don’t let that stop you from at least sending out a letter. When Mail Day comes and your child’s name is called, there will be joy in their hearts.
I plan to have letters for all 8 of our children ready to send on Friday. I have written about the recent snowfall and the newest addition to our family ~ Scruffy the pup! I am also personalizing the little boxes that I found on Oriental Trading a couple of weeks ago. I think that the children will like them!
