Freily Update

Today I called Compassion about why Freily had disappeared from my account last week. As much as I was hoping that it was just a computer glitch, I knew in my heart that wasn't the case.

As I was on hold waiting to talk to a Compassion representitive, I was praying for two things. I was praying that Freily had not left the program completely. I also prayed that his financial sponsor hadn't dropped him, because if they asked me to pick up the financial sponsorship for him, I would have to say no, and he would be left sponsorless again.

After praying for these two things, I was overjoyed to find out that Freily was still in the program and he still had the same financial sponsor. His current sponsor called Compassion and asked for Freily's correspondent relationship be transferred to one of the members of her family.

As happy as I am though, there is still a hint of sadness. Even though I never received any letters from him, I'm sad when I think of Freily. He probably received a letter or two from me in these last two months. All of a sudden, he is going to be getting letters from somebody else. I don't want him to think that I don't like him and left him. I wish there was a way that I could write him one last letter to tell him what happened and how much I enjoyed writing to him.

Goodbye, dear Freily. I hope life treats you wonderfully and God blesses every area of your life. You are so loved.


  1. You probably could write a final letter to him, but it would have to be a paper letter you mailed in, since he is obviously no longer on your account. You could probably send a quick email to Compassion to make sure, but if you write final letter on the top, they would probably send it through :) And as sad as it is to see a kid go, at least this is a some what happy reason

  2. I was just about to say you could probably still send a letter in, but Hez beat me to it :)

    Like she said, if you have his child number, you should be able to hand-write a letter and mail it on to him..especially if you write "Final Letter" at the top.

    I am glad to learn that he has not dropped out of the program, and that the financial sponsor's family wants to take an active role - but I know this is a sad part of corresponding.
