Nice Letter and Beautiful Artwork from Nandini

It's always a treat to get a letter from Nandini. She always draws some beautiful pictures for me.

Nandini is 9 years old and lives in East India. She wrote this letter on July 28th, 2015.


Dear Kayla, 

Greetings to you in the sweet name of our Lord Jesus. I am fine with my family. Thank you very much for your love, prayers, and support. 

I am regularly going to school and to the child development center. I learn about school subjects and Jesus. I am studying in 5th grade. 

We had an awareness program about child marriage. So many village people were joined over there. We had a VBS program in our project. We learned about Jesus, songs, and dance. We had an awareness program on malaria disease. 

Please pray for my studies. I am also praying for you. 

Your Loving Child, 

I love the detailed house and the water pump to the side. It really gives me a glimpse into what her community must look like.

Three More Letters to Round Out the Week

September, so far, as been a pretty great month for letters. I have another three letters to share with you today, all from teenagers.

First, I'll share the letter I received from Xhuliano. Both of my Albanian boys are huge fans of soccer, so I wrote them a letter about the World Cup. It's fun to hold a dialogue with Xhuliano about soccer, even though I don't know too much about it.

Xhuliano is 14 years old and lives in Albania. He never dates his letters (no matter how many times I ask him to. :) )


Dear My Friend Kayla, 

Hi, my friend! I am very well. I felt happy when I got your letter and I enjoyed reading it. I don't worry about the time I spend writing to you because I like writing to you. 

My friend, I have never seen a match of World Cup, but I have a desire to see a match. Here, it is about to start colder weather. And there? Is there colder weather? 

My family is very well and they enjoyed very much when they read your letter. Marsela and Stelina are very well. Marsela fills 5 years on April 5th, while Stelina is 13 years old on January 4th. 

Thank you for the stickers that you sent me and my sisters. They enjoyed it a lot when they saw them. I close the letter, my friend, but I will write you soon. 

With Love,


Onto a letter from Lina. Lina is one of my Colombian kids and letters from there are so fantastic. Country wide, they choose a letter topic and all children, regardless of age, writes on that topic or answers those questions. I got this information from my boys last month and now it's Lina's turn. 

Lina is 16 years old. She wrote this letter on July 24th, 2015. 


Dear Kayla, 

Hello sponsor. I greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. I hope you are very blessed. I thank you for all that you do for me and for the letters that you sent me. I'm fine and I celebrated Easter Sunday with my family. My favorite bible story is about Jesus because I love the end of the story. What I like doing the best is cooking because food is delicious for me. My favorite sport is basketball. My favorite TV show is Sam and Cat. My favorite month is December because we celebrate Christmas and I receive gifts and I share with my family. I tell you that we're good. I ask you to pray that God will continue to bless us. I give you Bible verse: Isaiah 44. I say goodbye with a hug. 



To end, I share a letter from Chintada. He always has some great things to say. 

Chintada is 19 years old and lives in East India. His letter is dated June 18th, 2015. 


Dear Kayla, 

At first, loving greetings to you in the name of Jesus Christ. I am doing well with my family. I hope and pray that you are also the same. 

I am very happy to receive your letters. I came to know about you in these letters. I saw your picture and it was a very nice one. Yes, I accepted Jesus as our savior. I am learning a lot of things at the project center. I had a health check-up at the project. We have a VBS program and I will learn new action songs and bible stories in the project center. We are making a new concrete house so please pray for that to be completed. 

Now, the rainy season has started here. Is it raining in your area? Please pray for my future and my family. I also pray for you and your family everyday.

Love from Ethiopia

Included in the big group of letters that I received, two of those letters were from Ethiopia, one of which came with a picture. Always exciting!

I'll share my letter from Taye first. He's a man of few words, but the few words are usually pretty lovely.

Taye is 18 years old. His picture is way overdue (I actually have an inquiry out for it) so he looks so young in his picture. He wrote his letter on August 8th, 2015.


Dear Kayla, 

My dear sponsor, peace and grace be with you. How are you doing? I and my family are in peace. Thank you for your helpful. I came to realize from your letter that you are praying for diligently. I am so glad for the picture with your letter. Thank you for all your support, enabling me to attend my education. Stay blessed. See you next time. Stay in peace. 



Now, the letter from Elias. Elias has a wonderful financial sponsor who frequently sends him family gifts. Then, I always get some great pictures! I am so happy to hear about what Elias's father was able to purchase with this gift!

Elias is 16 years old. This letter is dated August 4th, 2015. 


Dear Kayla,

How are you doing? How is your family? How is work? Praise God, my family and I are fine. I am learning my education properly. Your support is helping my family too. I am getting exercise books, pens, shoes, clothes, flour, teff, and cooking oil. Thank you and may God bless you and your family. I passed to 5th grade in school, with good results. I am very happy. I hope you will be too. Currently, it is the rainy season and school break, so I help my family and home and attend tutoring class. I also attend Sunday school properly, which is helping me in my life. I have got your gift money for my family and my birthday gift. I am very happy. Thank you so much. I bought clothes, shoes, and mobile machine with it. My father began a small business by repairing mobile phones. Thank you for your support. What is the weather life? What is the season? Pray for me and my family. Bye.

A Honduran Trifecta!

I had a full mailbox today! I received 6 letters! How awesome is that?!

I want to share three of them with you today. All three from kids in Honduras. My kids from Honduras are all wonderful writers!

First up, a letter from Nahomy. She has beautiful handwriting for somebody so young. As somebody who didn't even have legible handwriting until I got to college, I'm a little bit jealous. :)

Nahomy is 9 years old. This letter is dated June 6th, 2015.


Hello Dear Sponsor Kayla, 

I want to tell you that I'm really happy for receiving your letter. I'm doing well. Thanks to God, I've been having a good day. Let me tell you I did celebrate Easter and I had a nice time with my family. We went to church and when we got out of church we had a family dinner and then my friends and I played with firecrackers. I had lots of fun. Thank you very much for the photos you sent me. Thanks to God, I'm healthy. I've seen God in nature whenever I see the trees moving. I also see him in my teachers because they always talk to me about Him. God bless you. I love you and I appreciate you very much. 



Next up, a letter from Celeste. She always write so well, with many details. She really paints a mental picture, I think. 

Celeste is 13 years old. She wrote this letter on August 20th, 2015. 


Esteemed Kayla, 

My friend, today is a very special day because I received your letters and I am answering your questions. My grandmother is doing very well and healthy and so am I. This is a good day because I am writing a letter to you. The photographs that you sent me during Christmas are very beautiful. The Easter pictures and the pictures of the children are very beautiful too. I can imagine they have so much fun and they're learning so fast together. Thank you for your prayers for my family and my life. I can see God in all the good things that happen to me and the rest of the people in my village, when there are jobs for people, and when my friends heal when they are sick. Also when the teacher is showing us how to do things and in nature. I can see Him in the lagoons and in the workers and farmers that feed us. I want to tell you that in the month of August we will be having a three day camp at the project about values. We have to do peace, honesty, and dignity. That is all for now. I say goodbye to you with greetings and friendship. I love you very much. God bless you. 



Last up, the letter from Alexander. He answered a lot of my questions from several letters. 

Alexander is 14 years old. His letter is dated August 20th, 2015. 


Dear Sponsor Kayla, 

How are you? I am doing well. Let me tell you my favorite food is shrimp soup. My favorite cartoon is Tom and Jerry. My favorite activity is reading and my favorite color is red. The name of my best friend is Jesus. My favorite animal is the cat. My favorite hero is Escribi. My favorite sport is basketball. How are you today? Today is a very beautiful day because God is in my community. My friends and teachers are nice. Nature is beautiful. I am doing well and I have been having a nice day. Do you celebrate Easter? Do you have fever sickness? I am doing well. Is your sister well? My brother is big and healthy. What is your favorite food? Thank you for the letter and the picture you sent me and for the questions. I ask you to pray for me and my family. I send you a kiss and hug.

Three Weekend Letters

Yesterday, I received three letters from three of my lovely Compassion kids.

First, I will share the letter from the littlest member of my sponsorship family, Carolin. This is her very first letter to me. The letter is written by her mother, which I love. It'll be so great to get to know her mother until Carolin gets old enough to write by herself.

Carolin is 3 years old and lives in the Dominican Republic. This letter is not dated, as it appears to have been written when Carolin was originally enrolled in the project.


Dear Sponsor, 

May God bless you a lot! I thank you for being my sponsor. My favorite color is pink. I like to eat cookies. Do you have any children? Do you go to church? What do you work in? What is your favorite color? I live with my mother, my father, and my sister. I ask for your prayers for me. 


Written by: Carol (Carolin's Mother)


Next, a letter from Allison. I am so happy to hear from her. Things were slow-going for awhile there, as we seemed to be building our relationship, but I think we really seem to be connecting now. She's answering my questions and sharing about her life. It's great! 

Allison is 11 years old and lives in Ecuador. Her letter is dated May 16th, 2015.


Dear Kayla,

Hello, my precious sponsor! I greet you in Jesus's name. Many things have changed at the project and everybody likes that. As for your questions, I am fine. My favorite fruits are apples, strawberries, and grapes. My favorite TV shows are Alvin and the Chipmunks and Barbie. What TV shows do you like? I'd give Jesus my Bible as a gift because it is a very precious thing. I think the crown is beautiful and the little girl has a cute smile. (I shared a picture of the little girl I nanny for wearing a princess tiara). I do learn many things here. Thanks for the letter. Well, that's all for now. I say goodbye to you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. 



Lastly, a letter from Nikko. I am so happy to read this letter! Nikko has been out of school since I started to write to him two years ago. Nikko was living with his uncle and school was difficult for him, so he dropped out and went to work in his uncle's shop. It seems he wants to give school another go. Hallelujah! 

Nikko is 16 years old and lives in the Philippines. He wrote this letter on June 13th, 2015. 


Dear Ms. Kayla, 

Hi, my beautiful friend! How are you? I hope you are in good health. Me and my family here are fine. Thank you for your latest letter. 

I would like to thank you because I got my school subsidy. I bought notebooks, school shoes, uniform, and more. I decided that I will go back to school again and finish my high school level. I pray that I can make it this time. Please pray the same for me. 

On May 29th-30th, we had our sports camp at the center. We also had our teen camp. We enjoyed every game we played. 

How about you there? What were you doing this summer? How's your season there? Lastly, please continue praying for my family that God will give us blessings, protection, and daily needs. I will pray  for you that God will guide you in your work. Thank you and God bless. 


Jeremiah 29:12-13 "Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart."

Step Into My World: Rural India

Hello again, my faithful blog readers! It's Saturday, so let's take another journey to a region where some of my sponsored children live.

Today, we are visiting rural India. I have three children that live in rural settings in India:

Kalpesh, Khushi, & Sagar

Kalpesh and Sagar both live in villages outside the big city of Mumbai, which is located in Central India. Khushi lives in Northern India, outside of New Delhi, in a village that is situated in the Himalayan Mountains. Even though my kids live thousands of miles away from each other, their lives are fairly similar, in terms of living situation. 

Villages in rural India are pretty primitive, compared to the modern world. While the big cities in India are bustling with people and have most of today's modern conveniences, villages in rural settings almost seem like something out 1800's, to us living in in first world countries. These villages are made up of homes that are constructed with mud, clay, grass, reeds, and other materials found in nature. These homes do not have indoor plumbing and very rarely have electricity. 

Families in these areas typically work as farmers: planting/harvesting crops or caring for herds of animals. However, these families cannot afford to have their owns farms and often work on plantations that are owned by rich landowners. People that are hired to work on these farms make very low wages that just aren't sufficient enough to provide for the needs of their children. 

In the recent past, it was impossible for children living in rural areas to attend school. Schools, both public and private, were only located in the big cities and it wasn't possible for children to get to the cities. However, a recent government ruling has started the ball rolling on schools being built in these rural villages. Now, children living in these areas have the opportunity to attend school, something that their parents did not have the chance to do. Since parents are often uneducated, themselves, it is hard for children to get homework help at home. Thankfully, Compassion has wonderful tutors at each project to guide their enrolled children to a positive future in education. 

Another major issue in rural India is malnourishment and lack of nutrition. Due to their low wages, parents are often unable to provide their children with an adequate amount of meat, fruits, and vegetables to get their bodies growing at a healthy rate. Every time that Compassion's assisted-children attend their project, they are given a healthy meal with all of the calories and nutrition that they need to grow healthy and strong. 

Of course, like any Compassion project, the children are taught about Jesus and how important it is to have a relationship with him. The children are taught how to pray for themselves, their families, their communities, and their country. The Compassion staff in rural India have the following prayer requests for their children: 

- Pray for children that have been deserted by their fathers.

- Pray that parents will support and encourage their children to pursue an education. 

- Pray for reduced cases of infant mortality and malnourishment among children in India. 

I want to share two teenage boys with you today. They both live in rural villages in India and are waiting for a loving sponsor to provide for their needs, write to them, and encourage them as they grow into adulthood. 

Meet Sabin. He is 16 years old. His birthday is September 3rd, 1999. He lives with his father, mother, and 1 sibling. His father works as a laborer, when he can find work. His mother takes care of the home. At home, Sabin is responsible for gardening, caring for animals, and washing clothes. For fun, he enjoys soccer, art, and listening to music. Sabin has average performance in high school and he also enjoys attending church activities. 

This handsome guy is Issac. He is 16 years old and his birthday is July 10th, 1999. He makes his home with his parents and 3 siblings. His father works as a farmer and his mother cares for the home. Issac helps his family by buying/selling in the marketplace, caring for animals, and cleaning. Swimming, art, and playing ball games are his favorite activities. He also attends church activities, vacation bible school, and camp. He has average performance in high school.

Florenc's Updated Photo: 2015

I got this year's updated photo from my Albanian teen, Florenc. Isn't it so great to see them grow like this?

He's truly grown into a wonderful, young man. Our first couple of years together, he seemed so low, unhappy, and lacking in self-esteem. Now, his letters are hopeful about the future and he seems confident in himself. I'm so blessed to be able to know Florenc. I will treasure our last couple of years together, before he graduates at age 18. 

A New Peanut Joins the Family

I received a new correspondent child this week and I just have to share this cutie with you.

Meet Rodrigo. He's 5 years old and lives in Bolivia. I just love his smile and his thumbs up! 

I'm so excited to get to know him!

Summer Fun with Jhonrex

On Saturday, I received a lovely letter from Jhonrex. If you haven't read the post about how I got connected with Jhonrex as a correspondent sponsor, it's a pretty amazing story. You can read the post I wrote about it here:

A Miraculous First Letter 

In this letter, it's fun to hear about some of the summer activities that Jhonrex enjoys doing. I'm also super happy to hear that he's in school now. He dropped out for a couple of years because of "peer pressure." He's now back in school. Granted, he's a little behind other kids his age, but I'm so glad that he's back to getting his education. I'm proud of him.

Jhonrex is 14 years old and lives in the Philippines. This letter is dated April 11th, 2015.


Dear Kayla, 

Hello, how are you? I am okay and I'll be in grade 6 this school year, 2015. My family is okay, as well. My center summer classes will start on May 13th. What are some fun activities you have there during the summer. I enjoy my roller blades and I also play basketball. Please pray for my family to be good in good health and for me to be able to continue school. Please extend my regards to Ate Ali.

Step Into My World: Colombia Andean Region

Vamos a visitar Colombia!

Compassion works in two distinct regions in Colombia, the Andean region and the coastal region. The Andes Mountains take up so much space in Colombia, so many, many families live in this area. I have three Compassion kids in Colombia and they all live in cities near the Andes.

Caleb, Lina, & Daniel

Lina lives in the city of Cali and Caleb and Daniel both attend the same project, which is located in the city of Villavicencio. I couldn't find a good map that showed both the mountains and the cities that my kids live in, so I decided to stick with the map that you can clearly see the Andes Mountains in. 

Families that live the mountainous region are desperately poor. In the past, many men were supporting their families by working for the Colombian drug cartels. While this was, obviously, not a great job, it did provide for families. Colombia made huge strides and was able to completely break down the drug cartels. While this is wonderful for the country, overall, it left many men unemployed, unable to support their families. Most of these families migrated to the big cities in search of jobs, but have been unable to find work. This caused many city slums to sprout up, where conditions are crowded, dirty, and homes are made of scrap wood and other materials found in the city dumps. 

Homes in the slums are often prone to flooding, as water comes from the sewers in the big cities and ends up in the slums surrounding the city. Many homes are built on stilts to accommodate this flooding. Planks are set up to serve as "streets" between the homes, to allow people to travel from place to place. Sadly, despite all of the water around, none of it is safe to drink. The task of collecting clean water often falls to the children in the family. 

With a lack of clean water and the presence of stagnant water surrounding their homes, children are often at risk of catching diseases caused by waterborne parasites or disease caused by mosquitoes, such as malaria and dengue fever, as mosquitoes are drawn to stagnant water. Compassion is helping their assisted children avoid these diseases by teaching them about basic hygiene, such as handwashing and sleeping under a bed net at night. 

Education in Colombia can really be hit-or-miss. The best education, that prepares children for the future, can be received in private schools. However, these schools are too expensive for poor families to afford. Instead, these families have to settle for a public school education that they know is not really helping their children learn. It's not secret that the public schools are overcrowded, underfunded, and offer very few learning materials to their children. Compassion is helping these children to fill in the gaps in their education. The tutors at the Compassion projects teach children a variety of important lessons that will help them in the future. 

The neighborhoods that the children, in this region, live in are often dangerous to play in. Children playing on the streets can often be lured into gangs and illegal activities. Thankfully, Compassion provides the children with a safe place to play, without the fear of gangs. It's a place for the kids to just be kids and get to know each other, socially and emotionally. 

The Compassion projects in the Andean region have the following prayer requests for their sponsors: 

- Pray that God will provide and care for children who have been abandoned by their fathers. 

- Pray that God will provide jobs for the many parents who are unemployed. 

- Pray that God will provide a way for children and caregivers who are sick to be treated for their medical needs, in spite of lack of health facilities. 

I want to share these two children with you. They are both from the Andean region in Colombia and they are both waiting for a loving sponsor. 

This sweet girl is Yoasy. She is 5 years old, but will be turning 6 on September 19th. Yoasy lives with her father, mother, and 5 siblings. Her father is only sometimes employed and her mother is unemployed. Yoasy's chores include running errands and cleaning. For fun, she enjoys playing with dolls, running, and playing group games. She is not yet in school, but will start soon. 

She has been waiting 254 days for a sponsor!

This handsome, young man is Deyber. He is 12 years old and his birthday is November 1st. He lives with his father and 3 siblings. He has no mother-figure in his life. Deyber helps at home by making beds, running errands, and cleaning. For fun, he likes playing soccer, art, and riding a bike. He attends middle school and has average performance.

Unexpected Photo Update!

Today, when I logged onto my Compassion account, I saw that Nikko's photo had updated. I was completely shocked, because his photo updated less than a year ago, right before he turned 16. He will be turning 17 in just a couple of weeks. I have to say, I'm extremely happy about this new photo. Look at that smile! Nikko has such a wonderful personality, that really shines through in his letters. It's great to get a picture of him that shows that personality. What a handsome, young man he is!

Letters with Pictures!

Aren't those the best?!

I am so thankful for the financial sponsors of my correspondent kids. I constantly think about them and pray for them and thank them for paying the sponsorship fees for these children and agreeing to let me write to them. It is such a blessing to get to know these kids. It's like the ultimate teamwork, in my mind.

It is even more wonderful when these financial sponsors give extra financial gifts to their sponsored children. I thank them so much for that because I get some great photos!

First up, I'll share the letter from Enatenesh. I have received a few photos of her and her family in the past and they always make me laugh a little bit. Her brothers always pose like magazine models and I love it. Serious young men.

Enatenesh is 18 years old and lives in Ethiopia. Her letter is dated July 9th, 2015.


Dear Kayla, 

How are you doing, my beloved and respected supporter? I am doing fine. My family would like to forward their greetings to you. Thank you so much for the your support through the church and for your gift. We fixed our house with some of the money and deposited the rest in the bank. May God bless you. I passed to Grade 8 this year. I attend Sunday school class. Thank you for your letter. There are many singers in our church. These singers celebrate Christmas nicely. I have two brothers: Wasihun and Tekalign. I love them so much. The older one is 24 years old and the middle one is 19 years old. Please pray for my brothers and for my family. I will pray for you. Until next time, bye! 



Now, a letter from Jose. This is only the 2nd letter I've gotten from him and it's so long and detailed. It's so great when kids jump into great conversations from the start. 

Jose is 17 years old and lives in Peru. This letter is dated July 15th, 2015. 


Dear Sponsor Kayla, 

I greet you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, hoping that you are in good health. I want to thank you for the the gift money. I bought a pair of blue jeans and a t-shirt. They are beautiful. Thank you for the letters that you sent. My favorite color is green. My favorite meals are "cuy chactado" (guinea pig!) and potato pastry. In order to have fun I go out to play soccer with my friends and I listen to music. I have a younger brother who is 15 and an older sister who is 18. At home, we live with my parents. It is a small family but we love each other very much. I want to tell you that my family and I are fine with God's help. God helps us to achieve our goals. I can see that God helps us with our family at home. Our teachings share their teachings with us pupils. In nature, I see all the creation that God has made; plants, animals, and I see him through the people that love me very much. God is everywhere because he is the creator of the universe. I thank you for the pictures that you sent. They are beautiful. What are the parents' names of the children that you look after? Please pray for my family. I close with a big hug and kiss.

We're only on week into the month and I've already received 4 letters. Whoo hoo! I will share two of the letters today and another two tomorrow. The two I will share tomorrow have pictures with them! Get excited!

First, a letter from my little Ernest. He doesn't yet write on his own, but his tutor is great at sharing information with me.

Ernest is 9 years old and lives in Ghana. This letter is dated June 13th, 2015.


Thank You Message for Sponsor: He says, thanks so much for your story you shared. You've expressed new information about your country and your sponsorship for him throughout his stay at the project. May God richly bless you. 

Child's Response to Sponsor's Questions: He says the following are a few facts about his country. Independence Day is March 6th, 1957. The flag colors are red, gold, and green. The capital city is Accra. The national anthem is God Bless Your Homeland Ghana. He says that he cleans his teeth everyday in the morning and he has lost some of his baby teeth.

Now, my letter from Abbas. He writes wonderful, long letters with great information. I love the relationship I have with my kids. We really seem to connect and have great conversations. I'm hoping to be able to stay connected with him until he graduates from the program. 

Abbas is 18 years old and lives in Uganda. He wrote this letter on July 18th, 2015. 


Dear Kayla, 

I humbly greet you in the name of the almighty God. I hope everything is okay on your side. How is your country? How are your family members? Back to my side, I am okay and my family members are well, except for my father who is sick, but he is on treatment and due to God's grace he will be fine. So pray for him as I also pray for him, so that he can be healed. 

I love writing this letter to thank you for the support you always give me, including school fees, gifts, and letters, especially the last letters. I received them all and went through them. I am good, as you hoped. Thank you for sharing your church information about the celebrations on Good Friday and Easter. God will reward you for spending your time recognizing those days. I also thank you for your care for children, which is good and keep it up. I am very glad to hear that you teach children at your church, which is so good. Even me, I love children below my age and also always like to share with them about God's love. 

The school is going well and we are in preparations for our end of term examinations, but we are always disturbed by sports every year in second term. (I am no idea what that means). So, I request you to pray for me as I always pray for myself to achieve my goals at school and at our project. 

I also thank God for doing a great job at our project. Praise be to Him because we are what we are because of Compassion. It has made us spiritually respectable people and good, God-fearing children. I also thank him for our project teachers for loving us and our project. This is due to the great job they have done to repair our project building. We are soon going to get new uniforms and we also go to conferences, not for tourism, but to learn more about God. We are also having an inter-house talent show in August during school holidays. We have three houses and they are Daniel (blue), Jeremiah (orange), and Isaiah (red). I am very sure that my house will win those competitions because I have ability and I have many talents (competitive guy!) . Let God be with us. 

You are always in my prayers . May God bless you and your family.
