New Boys of the Family!

Last month, I added two new correspondents to my family! I've been putting off writing this post because both of the boys are from CO-384 and they were both due for a photo update. I have received a photo update of one of the boys, but not the other. I know for a fact that he looks nothing like the photo I have of him, but I can't keep putting off this post. Without further ado, here are my new boys (per usual, I get assigned my correspondent children 2 at a time)

Name: Jonatan
Age: 6
Birthday: October 13th 
Grade in School: 1st
School Performance: Below Average 
Chores: Running Errands & Carrying Water
Interests: Soccer, Group Games, and Hide-and-Seek
Guardians: Father and Mother
Siblings: 2 Siblings

(Keep in mind, most of this info is out of date, nearly 2 years old)

Name: Juan
Age: 9
Birthday: June 7th
Grade in School: 1st

Chores: Running Errands & Cleaning
Interests: Group Games, Hide-and-Seek, Storytelling 
Guardians: Father & Mother

Then, in a surprise twist, I've also financially sponsored a new child! Surprise! Haha. A group of friends just returned from Honduras, where they went on a mission trip. They visited Compassion project HO-133 to help them build a new roof, do a VBS, and just love on some kids. The group returned with a whole stack of packets of newly registered kids. As it always goes with me, I never really have the intention or desire to sponsor a new child. I look at the kids on Compassion and World Vision websites every single day. I pray over them, fawn over them, and share kids that reach out to me with others, in the hopes of finding them a sponsor. Though, I hardly ever get that feeling to sponsor. But, man, when I do get that feeling, I've learned over time not to doubt it. My friend Kim posted like little boy named Enoc on her page, and I just knew that he was mine. 

How precious is he? I don't know too much about him yet, but he is 3 years old, his mother works as a tutor at the project, and he is all boy. In this picture he was rolling around in the grass and dirt, haha. I love that! 

Here are a few more pictures that I have of him:

Figuring out how to take a selfie with someone's camera. 

Such a sweetie!



  1. I hope you're not trying to even out your number of boys and girls ;)

    1. Haha. No. I don't think that will ever happen.

  2. How fun!! Your boys are all so handsome. What a neat opportunity to sponsor a little guy from the project that Kim visits!!

  3. All three of your new boys are ADORABLE ,IRRESISTIBLE, CUTENESS.
