Hi. I just signed up as a sponsor to a child in Mexico. I  know I'll be receiving an information packet of some sort in the near future. I was wondering if in that packet I would be getting to know more about her family, and sponsorship history...etc.??? I am sorry to be pushing for more information when I'm only 3 days into the program :) I just really want to get as much information as possible, and look forward to being a positive role model in her life. 

Do we get updates if there are events going on in our children's area? I'd really love to learn as much as possible about her area of the country. I've been researching myself this weekend as much as I can find, and could use any help or suggestions to further my knowledge of Renata's environment. 

One final question....then I promise to stop :)  Would I be able to get some sort of .pdf or .jpeg of her photo(s)? I would love to be able to have them so I can print one for my parents and one for my office, as well as one to have at home as well. 

Thank you for all that  you do, and your help and consideration to my long winded requests. :)

Hi Andrew! Welcome to the Compassion family :). I love your enthusiasm and am so excited for you to get connected with your child and build a relationship with her! I looked at your account and see you began sponsoring sweet little Renata on October 9. I have exciting news for you; sponsors receive additional information on their child and a fun welcome booklet within 15 days of beginning their sponsorship! You should be receiving this information in the mail very soon and it will have facts about her country, her community, the center she attends, as well as details about letter writing and more about your personal account and opportunities to dive deeper into your partnership in ministry with us!

As a sponsor, you will receive a letter from the pastor of the church partner your child attends, once a year. You will also receive birthday and Christmas reminders. Compassion receives formal updates on children from our country offices once every two years.  In the meantime, children keep sponsors current on life events through letter writing.  You are also welcome to ask Renata any additional questions you may have
in your letters to her!

As requested, I have emailed you a jpeg photo of Renata. We receive new photos of your child every 2 years thus, we only have one photo on file for your girl so far since she began our program just last month. Feel free to print this off and hang it on your fridge, frame it for your office, etc. :). Because she was just recently registered in our program, I didn't have any sponsorship history to send you but I did include in the email, the information we have about her family.

We are so excited that you have decided to change the story for this precious child! Thank you for investing into her life and I pray that you would enjoy this journey with her and understand the impact your making in her life as well as her families. I know she will be so excited to receive your first letter and get to know you more! Please don't hesitate to let us know if you have any further questions because we are here to help you!
