Our family received a letter from our Compassion daughter, Millicent, this past week. How excited we were to receive it! We were getting a little bit discouraged because we hadn't received one in a while but it is all good now.
Here is her letter to us verbatim:
I greet you in the name of the LORD. I am doing well in my studies but hope to do better. I had a very enjoyable Easter with my family. I am growing spiritually and physically well. I wish you all the best.
In Gods Love,
Short, sweet, to the point.
She is only 10 so we don't expect a long winded letter. We are just happy to have her as part of our family and that she is doing well in mind, body and spirit. She also did a few drawings for us of her animals.
We have a Compassion International letter writing event at our church this Friday evening. It is something we do each month to help everyone who sponsors a child be accountable to writing their child (ren) regularly. We try to write our child at least 1-2x a month so she is consistently receiving something in the mail from her family in the US.
Do you sponsor a child? Would you like to learn more about Compassion International? Check out their website or Facebook page. You can download a Facebook profile cover from there, too. And guess who helped in that Facebook cover campaign? Why Shaun Groves, of course.
