Hi! I haven't received a letter from my sponsored child David in about 5 months. I know that he may only send up to two letters a year, so I haven't worried too much. I'm just hoping everything is alright and that my letters are getting to him as well. My sponsor number is 3600448 and his child ID is BF3110278.

Thank you for any help!!

Hi! I'm having the same problem. I was wondering if someone at Compassion could tell me the last time I received a letter from Heidy? I can't remember (November maybe?). I wrote to her on New Years and haven't received a reply yet.

Good morning Mallory! Our records indicate that David wrote a letter to you in January :). I hope you received this! I see that you sent a letter to him at the end of January and a letter to him again in the middle of February. Thank you so much! Because it takes 2-3 months for letters to be delivered both ways, he likely just received your letter in April sometime. I hope you receive a letter very soon from him! If you don't receive a letter by the end of July, please let us know and we will send an inquiry to our office in Burkina Faso to ensure he's doing alright.

Please be encouraged that you can write as often as you'd like :). The more often you write, the more you can expect to hear from your boy.


Hi Greg! I see that the last letter you received from Heidy was in November, however I have good news for you! We just received word in our office today from Colombia that a letter is in processing and on its way to us. Once we receive it in Colorado, we'll process it here and get it off in the mail to your home :). Thanks for your patience and for writing to your child!

Hi, thank you for replying! I received an introduction letter. May have been December or January, I can't remember. Is this what you are referring to?

Hi Mallory! :) Yes, the introduction letter is the one that I'm referring to. I also see that you just sent another letter to him on May 2nd that we just logged in our system. Thank you so much! He will enjoy receiving these and I pray you get a letter here in the next couple of months!
