I was wondering if someone could check and see if I have any letters that might have been logged in before the new letter writing system rolled out from either Lalhlimpuii in East India or Chubong in Bangladesh.
I'm really anxious to hear from Chubong, and I'm also a little worried about Lahlimpuii, since I haven't heard from her yet this year.

And as a note, I really like the new letter writing system.  Besides the new options I have for writing my kids, I can now see that I have a letter on the way from Wilaiporn.  I really like being able to see that, it makes the waiting a little easier for me.

Hi Jamie! Wow, it looks like Chubong has not written to you since February of last year! I know there were issues in Bangladesh but that is not normal. I just sent an inquiry to check on her. It looks like Lalhlimpuii last wrote to you in December 2015 which means that we are not quite at six months for her. I sincerely hope both of these girls write to you real soon!

Thank you for your kind words and feedback about our new system. I am so glad that you are finding it easier and more user friendly.

Thanks for checking Susan!  I wasn't sure how long I should wait on Chubong, given the recent situation in her country.  But it's been getting difficult.  I knew it was too early to inquire about Lalhlimpuii, but I was hoping you might be able to see something coming in that I cannot.  I'll just keep my fingers crossed I'll see something from her soon.

I was wondering if there has been any word from Chubong yet?  And according to my records, we've past the 6 month mark for Lalhlimpuii.  Since she is in India, should I just wait until the situation there resolves?

Eleanor, are there a few specific kids you are wondering if you have letters from? It's a very manual process for me to look up every child's letters coming to you right now, and with 77 kids that will take a very long time to look up. Would you be willing to give me a few that you haven't heard from in a while and are curious about instead?

Eleanor, I am sending inquiries for the gifts that you sent to Mohanathas. It looks like you sent the gift to Senita in March so we are not quite at the six month mark. Also, it does look like there is a thank you letter and photo on its way from her. I did not see any gifts having been sent recently to Jennifer in Ecuador, Novita in Indonesia, or Pavan in India. Were you maybe thinking of different children?

Eleanor, I apologize as I think I misunderstood your original post. It does look like there is a letter at the country office in Ecuador from Jennifer to you. I trust that you will receive it real soon. Was the last letter you received from her in March? It is tough to tell in my system but it looks like that was the last one. If so, six months would be September 1 later this week. Let us know if you do not receive anything by then and we will send the inquiry then. There is also a letter at the country office in Indonesia from Novita. That said, it looks like her last letter was sent in December of last year. I am sending an inquiry to check on her. Pavan also has a letter at the country office (Did I mention we are having issues at our country offices with the new letter processing system? You can really see it in your case and I am so sorry these letters are taking so long). You started sponsoring him March 2016 though so I am sending an inquiry for him too.

Hi Jesus Freak! I know it can be tough to wait for letters from your child, but I promise they will come! Eugene actually did send you an introductory letter already, which you should receive in the mail soon if you haven't already. I'd actually encourage you to log into your online account so you can read it there! Once you are logged in, you can click on "Write My Child", which will take you to a new page. Click on "My Letters" on the left side of the page, and you should be able to read his letter under the communications tab under his name and photo. I can send you an email copy if you have trouble reading it online. Also, Eugene is probably just receiving your letter(s) this month. Once he receives them, he does have sixty days to respond, so it might be a few more months before you hear from him again. Don't let that discourage you though! Every letter is a gift, and I know Eugene will be overwhelmed with encouragement and joy to receive your letters too. Keep up your amazing correspondence to him :).

Hello,

I hate to ask, but according to my records I haven't received a letter from Lovely in the Philippines since late January.  Could someone check and see if there is maybe one logged from her somewhere in the system?

Hi Jamie! I'm so sorry it's been over six months since you heard from Lovely :(. I did check in the system and found that we are currently processing two letters from her as we speak! You should see them on your account soon.
