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.
