I had read about it....
Others had talked about it on their blog...
however I wouldn't have been able to explain it until I actually experienced it myself.
The day before Easter break, I came home to a cream colored envelope in my mailbox. I knew exactly what it was. I flipped it over to see "MESSAGE FROM YOUR SPONSORED CHILD" written in bold blue on the front.
It was so amazing to get a letter from Vanesa. I have been writing a handwritten letter once a month and sometimes sending emails between those. I hope she has been getting my letters now too (I know travel time can be super long to Uganda).
I had Alan snap a quick photo of me with the letter to send to her :)
If you are interested in receiving your very own cream colored envelope, please hop on over to sponsor a child!
A group of bloggers recently came back from visiting Compassion children in the Philippines. If you are interested in what they saw there, please click here. Their stories are... well, I really cannot explain. They are real.
