Hi everyone! Sorry I haven't posted much for awhile. It partially isn't my fault...the mail around here has been slow lately. REALLY slow. So slow, in fact, that after a month of waiting for two letters that should have arrived within a week, I emailed Compassion and got scanned versions of the letters so I could finally reply to my kids! Here's what I've learned about my Compassion Family this month:
José has turned 13, and has an updated picture! He now participates in both church and youth group, and he is in grade 6. His best subject is art and he enjoys reading and swimming.
Emanuel is learning about prayer and "The Word of the Lord" at his Compassion project. His favourite Bible story is the one about David and Goliath. He prays that God will protect his family from evil and that they will always be together. His favourite verse is Jeremiah 18:6, which talks about Israel being like clay in God, the potter's, hands (I wonder if they did a lesson on that at the project).
I also got another short but sweet letter from Rosalie's mom. She says "Rosalie said thank you for giving her your pictures, and and also for greeting her. She's also hoping that you will not get tired of writing to her and praying that she would understand her lesson" (never gonna happen, kid!). She also said that Rosalie is now "diligently attending activities in CDC" and is interested in her lessons because of her new teacher (cue an emphatic "YES!" complete with fist-pump!). Thank you, Lord!
Have you received any exciting updates from your Compassion kids lately?
