Hello,
Jeremy and I recently started corresponding with Niyomugaba and just received our first letter from him.
We were excited and delighted to receive a picture too but he thanked us for the money his financial sponsor sent and told us he bought a cow.
1. I love the picture but thought maybe it's really supposed to go to his financial sponsor since they obviously sent him the gift for his cow.Do we need to send it back to compassion so it can be sent to his financial sponsor s?
2.I read that sometimes sponsor children have a hard time understanding the difference between their financial and correspondence sponsor s, so I understand he may think we are his financial ones. Should I try to explain this or leave it alone?
Thank you for all. You do:)
Jacqueline

After researching compassion s site I can answer my 2nd question.
I should not try to explain it to him. Since the field workers will.
I took some advice from one of the other ladies posting and merely stated in my reply to him that it is wonderful God provided a cow for him. I hope that encourages him to believe God for every need he has in life.
As for the picture, I'm still not sure if that should be returned to compassion so his financial sponsor can see it. All the other posts didn't mention what to do with picture.
I am greatful for this wonderful experience.Tnx compassion:)

You do not need to return the photo :)
You could scan it and ask if Compassion would email a copy to his financial sponsor as well...I have no idea if they will do that or not, but may be a nice gesture if then can?  Not sure.... but I am sure that you get to keep the photograph :)
