Letters from 2 of ‘my boys’!

All of us Compassion sponsors will agree that we find a lot of joy in going to our mailbox and finding that familiar cream colored envelope that says ‘Message From Your Sponsored Child’! Over the course of a couple of days, I received letters from Abner in Colombia and Eduardo in Mexico.

957b154e999a11e2a91a22000a9e089b_7[1] Abner is quite the artist! He is one of my correspondent kids and he just turned 10 in December. Here is what his letter says:

Sponsor Yvonne,

I’m very happy to write again to you and to greet you. May the Lord Jesus bless you greatly. I want to thank you for the letter that you sent me and the lovely photos. I’m pleased to hear that you’re well and I hope you’ve had a lovely Christmas.

I tell you that everyday I get up at 7:00am, I help with the household and I get ready to go to school from 12m to 6:00pm.

In the evening I do my homework, have dinner and I go to bed at 9:30pm. What do you do in a type day? Please pray for my family that the Lord will bless us each day more. I’ll be praying for you and your family too.

I want to send you this bible verse from Lam. 3:25 “the Lord id good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him.”

I say bye with a big hung a God bless you,


Then a couple of days later, I received a letter from Eduardo and I was so excited about this letter!


We have been sponsoring Eduardo for almost a year and a half now. At the beginning, someone from the center or his dad would write his letters. Now he is writing his own letters! Here is what his letter has to say:

My best friends at the project are Brayan, Aldo, Candido and Emi.

I go to my project one day a week.

I get to my project by bus.

My favorite activity to do at my project is physics and baseball.

Please pray for my parents.

I would like to ask you if it is cold.

I want to thank you for the gifts.

I want to tell you that in the Compassion program there will be a festival and they are going to give gifts. I started elementary school.

I just love these boys and their sweet hearts!

Have you heard from your Compassion kids lately?
