More “Precious Connection” Girls

A couple of months ago, I happened to notice that the Compassion International website had a lot of children available from the same project that our Precious in Ghana attends.  I have a real heart for Precious, as our first Compassion child, and for the project, which puts a LOT of effort into establishing a connection through letter writing.  They tend to be reciprocal with their letters, meaning that they will send one for every one they receive.  With English as the official language, there is no wait time for translation and letters seem to get from point A to point B in 3 to 4 weeks. 

When I posted info and links to the children a few months ago, I was blown away at how God worked to get all of the children sponsored in just a couple of days.  In fact, I had some people contact me afterwards, hoping that there were more children waiting from the project. At that time, there weren’t.

Well, today, I happened to look and found two more sweet girls from Precious’ project who are looking for sponsors.  Both girls have been waiting over six months.

Agartha will be turning six next week and I know it would be such a blessing for her to be sponsored for her birthday!

Agartha lives with her father and grandmother and she enjoys playing house, jumping rope and playing group games.

Evelyn is 7 and she is just as cute as can be.  She is the same age as our Precious, so I wonder if they play together at the project.

Evelyn is listed as living with both parents and she likes reading, so you could send her some books to encourage her love of learning!

I would be so happy if any of you would be interested in sharing this “Precious Connection” with our family, and sponsor children in the same project.  If you do decide to sponsor one of these girls, please let me know and I would love  to send you a Family Sponsorship Kit which has a lot of ideas to help you and your family make the most of your sponsorship!

(If you do sponsor one of these girls could you do me a favor and type “source code: 110182” into the Special Instructions box when you finalize it one the Compassion page? It helps the Compassion headquarters keep track of how/where sponsorships are generated. Thank you!)

You are so lucky. I have friends that want to sponsor from the same project as our oldest child. Although the pastor from that project wrote and said that there were 11 unsponsored children, I have never found any of them available on the website!

Good luck with your Precious Connection! If there is anyone who can get them sponsored, it's you!

I am going to pray about Agartha. Right now, today, I cannot but if I am supposed to sponsor her - she will still be there on Friday when I will be able.

See the power of positive thinking within you. God bless you.

I do not have any credit cards, only debit cards. I am living debt free. If Evelyn is still there on Friday, I will sponsor her.

I am excited to hear about the potential sponsorships tomorrow! Please let me know! :D

Stacey said...

I am now the proud sponsor of two girls from Ghana, Evelyn and Angela. I look forward to building relationships with these two children.

Oh, that has made my day! I have been looking through the children from Ghana recently. How old is Angela?

If you would like me to send you a Family Sponsorship Kit, please email me with your address. 3girlsmama at gmail dot com

Hi Michelle--It's Saturday, and Agartha was still available, so my daughter and I thought about it for, umm, about 0.2 second, and she is now ours!

Praise the Lord!!! :D Happy dance!!

Now, I can't remember if I have already sent you a Family Sponsorship Kit. If I haven't, please email me your address and I will get one out this coming week!

hi michelle,

i'm still awaiting my sponsor packet from comapssion for our first child in uganda. how do i find out if my child's letters will be reciprocal? i know that english is the official language there so it gives me hope that turn time on letters will be faster than if translation were needed but i'd be very curious to know what to expect when it comes to how many letters we will receive. i see that you have a child in uganda as well so hopefully you can give me an idea how often you hear back from them. thanks!

Melissa, I don't believe that Uganda is reciprocal. Madina has only been in our family for just a couple of months. I would ask on OurCompassion. (http://www.ourcompassion.com) I know they have recently discussed which countries are reciprocal.
