New Ugandan Friends!

Today, I logged onto my account and saw two new faces! A couple of weeks ago, I lost a correspondent child and asked for a child from Uganda to be added to my account. Well, today I got two of them. Surprise!

Meet Brenda. Isn't she lovely?

She is 14 years old. She lives with her grandparents, who both work as farmers. She is in 7th grade. She has a very long list of chores and an equal sized list of hobbies and interests. She seems to be a very busy young lady. 

And now, onto the newest boy of my family. This is Derrick: 

He will turn 11 years old next month. He lives with his father, who works as a driver, and his mother, who works as a farmer. Derrick is in 4th grade. Like Brenda, he seems to like everything and does everything at home. Busy kids in Uganda. 

I am so excited to welcome these two to my family! Now, time to go write some letters!

    1. Beatriz from Brazil lost her sponsor. I had only been assigned to her for a month and had never heard from her. I didn't post it on my blog when I lost her.

    Compassion always give you correspondents two at a time! lol Congrats!

    1. I know! At some point, I'll have to stop asking, haha. If I keep getting two new kiddos every time I ask for one, I'm going to end up with 100 kids!

  3. That's so fun!!! I love how Compassion gives you kids in twos. Have fun writing to Brenda and Derrick!

    1. Oh, so you've noticed that too, huh? Haha. I don't know what it is. Maybe my emails duplicate themselves or something.
