Correspondence Connection Update

Those who visit my blog know that one of my passions is inspiring sponsors in their letter writing ministries to their Compassion children. Our words of love and encouragement are such an important aspect of sponsorship. The connections and relationships are so very valuable.

Last year I shared a Correspondence Connections post where I featured a letter I had written about my daughters and their friends.

Today we received a letter from our little Madina in Uganda.

Greetings from Uganda, hope you are fine. My mother and father greet you. How are Kaya and Luna? I thank you for the letters and pictures which you send me….

Greet Owen and Olivia and also Nancy and Hannah. Thank you for their pictures, they look nice. My friend is called Sharon and we like to play netball. Thank you for the books that you have sent me and the sticker book and the cards.”

I love that, as I had hoped, the letter about Kaya and Luna’s closest friends inspired a connection and response from little Madina. My girls were so excited to read this reply and I was sure to reach out and greet their friends on Madina’s behalf.

Now, not all of our Compassion children reply specifically to our letters and I understand that there are a lot of variables that factor in to why this is. However, we are always excited to get a response like this!

Have you gotten any interesting reply letters from your sponsored children lately? I would love to read about them!
