Today is a very special day. It’s Jennylyn’s birthday! Jennylyn is my first Compassion-child, and I started sponsoring her when she was almost 6 years old. I think sponsoring through Compassion’s one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. I love that I can tell someone on the other side of the world she’s loved and cared-for, talk about our families and friends, and share Bible-verses I hope might help her in the tough times, but the letters I receive from Jennylyn mean far more to me than the ones I write. (I’ll never forget when she said at my age, my skin was smooth like a fresh fruit!) I’m not sure when a new photo will arrive, but I always keep her latest on display so my family and friends can see what she looks like. Sponsorship makes a big difference in the life of a child – a Bible, education, school supplies, medical care … but the sponsor benefits too.
I wonder if you’d like to do the same: Start sponsoring a child who’s almost 6 years old. If you would, I’ve found a little girl on Compassion UK’s website. Her name’s Kristina Cassandra (what a mouthful!) and she’ll be 6 tomorrow. Why not click on her name, read all about her and see whether you’d like to become her sponsor?
