Have you gotten caught up in World Cup fever? We usually don't spend a lot of time watching professional sports, but with six of Compassion's countries having teams competing in this year's World Cup, we are just a bit interested in following along. And we have children in three of those countries!
My mailing to my kids this month includes quite a bit about the World Cup. Let me share with you what I am mailing:
- World Cup trading cards we found at Target
- World Cup stickers we found at Walgreens
- World Cup word search I found on Compassion Canada's World Cup Pinterest board
- World Cup coloring page, also from Compassion Canada's Pinterest board
- World Cup world map, with a listing of the countries competing this year
- And for the girls, I found some fun stickers in the Dollar Spot at Target
This month, I decided to keep the content of each letter the same. I typed up the letter on my computer, and as I was printing out the letter, I made sure I changed out the child's name and number on each letter.
Here is what I wrote:
"For the Lord is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations." - Psalm 100:5
How are you and your family? Are you enjoying a break from school yet?
One thing we have been doing recently is watching some of the World Cup soccer games. Are you familiar with the World Cup soccer games? There are teams from 32 countries around the world competing in Brazil for the world championship of soccer teams. We have enjoyed watching the team from your country play.
With this letter, I have included some activity pages about the World Cup that I thought you would enjoy. On the map, I have colored in the country where I live and the country where you live.
Do you like to play soccer? I used to like to play soccer when I was in school.
Is there a sport you enjoy playing?
I love you and pray for you and your family often. I pray you always know that God loves you very much and He has a plan for you and your live ahead.
Sending my love and hugs to you today!
