Compassion Letter Writing #1: The True Impact of Letters

I have come to the understanding that the letters we write to our sponsored kids are more important, treasured, cherished and valued than we will ever understand. Compassion sponsorship is about relationship, and the letters are the way that we get to know each other. It's not meant to be a chore. We are able to speak words of Life, Hope, Encouragement and Love into these little souls who desperately need to hear that someone loves and believes in them.

Bottom line: If sponsorship is more than a "good deed"; if you want to develop your connection and relationship with your sponsored child, you need to write regularly. Write about your family, job, hopes and dreams, send Bible verses, send pictures and photos. They love it all!

Our letters bring them joy for the present, hope for the future and make them feel loved. Here's proof:

All of us especially my parents are very happy about your letters. I am very glad that you always remember us.

I am so grateful for your letters. They have been a great blessing to my life.

I always wait for your letters anxiously and I thank God in my prayers for sending me someone like you.

  1. I love the quotes!! Letters are such a tangible way for us to show our love in a long distance relationship. One of our kids recently sent a letter saying he thought we'd forgotten him because he hadn't heard from us, but then he received a pile of letters and knew we still loved him. Poor guy! I think with all the changes in the system the letters got backed up. But that note really struck a chord with me on the significance of our letters to our kids. Thanks for sharing what your kids have said.
