Mail Call Monday!

Several Mondays each month, Compassion International sponsors link up to share the news from their sponsored children around the world.

Today we were blessed with TWO cream colored envelopes in our stack of mail! Very exciting!

The first letter was from our Bertille in Burkina Faso.

The letter was very short, but Bertille did share that she was able to buy some beautiful clothes with some gift money. I am not sure if she is referring to birthday or Christmas money, but I am happy that she was able to have some new clothes!

The second letter was from our beloved daughter, Kwagala.

KD sent thanks to several of her co-sponsors who sent along cards a few months ago. she also shared that, with a gift, she was able to buy a handbag, bed sheets, open shoes and some sweets.

Like our Magid did last week, Kwagala also mentioned the picture we sent of Kaya and her birthday cake from church last November. 

“It was wonderful to see her in the photo carrying a little baby with a beautiful cake in front. Kaya, I think you are a good girl because you had many friends on your birthday.”

While this letter was shorter than her others had been, I am always very thrilled to hear from our very special daughter in Uganda. I am praying that the Lord will make a way for me to be able to visit her before she graduates from the Compassion program!

What about you? Did you get any letters from your Compassion children this past week? If so, please share in the comments section below!
