I am passionate about Compassion.
Compassion International main website
We began sponsoring in November 2012 as a Christmas gift for my daughter Kaitlin. We sponsor an almost 15 year old girl, Adriana in Ecuador.
As I learned more about Compassion, and joined the community of Compassion sponsors at Our Compassion
I quickly grew to respect and appreciate the organization. When I found out about the Correspondence Program, I contacted Compassion Canada and requested to be a correspondent sponsor. Right away, Terri assigned Dayana and Edwin in Haiti to me. This was a terrific fit for our family of 2 girls and one boy. Our children pray for Adriana, Dayana and Edwin daily.
Because Kaitlin was assigned to correspond with Adriana, I wanted to have a teen that I could write to and Terri assigned Mathaline to me. Mathaline likes art and I am looking forward to seeing her work and receiving her letters.
My heart is really drawn to the teens within the Compassion program. Knowing that they only have a few years left with the support of the Compassion program, I really want to encourage them in their lives, as they make decisions about their education and their careers and hopefully get them into the Word of God. I requested to be part of the Correspondence program out of the Compassion International office. I now have 6 more teens to write to! They are in Ethiopia, India, the Dominican Republic and Bolivia. 3 of them will graduate out of the program in 2014 so I have little time to send them lots of words of encouragement and to be praying for them daily.
