Longest Waiting: 3 at 383

Hi everyone. I apologize for the lack of blog posts so far in the new year. I've been working more often (praise the Lord!) and haven't heard from any of my Compassion kids, so there hasn't been a lot to share. Today I would like to highlight three children who have been waiting a long time for sponsors through Compassion Canada.



This is Chelanda. She is 11 years old and lives in Haiti with her mom and dad. Her father works as a laborer and her mom maintains the home. Chelanda's chores at home include washing clothes and cleaning. In primary school her performance is average. For fun, she likes to sing, listen to music and play group games. Chelanda has been waiting 383 days for a sponsor.






Tumukunde Andrew lives in Uganda with his mom, dad and 4 siblings. He is 10 years old. His father and mother both work as teachers. At home he tends the garden, carries water and cares for animals. In school his performance is average. For fun he likes to run, play group games and ride a bike. Tumukunde has also been waiting 383 days for a sponsor.






This is Lisbeth. She is 6 years old and lives in Ecuador with her mother, father and one sibling. Sometimes her father works as a laborer and her mother works as a farmer. Her chores at home include washing clothes, running errands and cleaning (that's more than I did when I was 6 years old). She is in pre-school where her performance is above average. For fun, Lisbeth likes to sing, play with dolls and play hide-and seek. She has also been waiting 383 days for a sponsor.




These three children have their pictures and information listed at www.compassion.ca. You can search for them by selecting their country and gender. There are many more children like Chelanda, Tumukunde and Lisbeth who have been waiting 383 days for a loving sponsor (that's over a year)! Please consider adding one of these children to your Compassion family, or maybe even as your first Compassion child. If that isn't possible, please remember to keep these children in your prayers.
