Hi Mariana! I want to encourage you that your child will receive each and every letter that you send to him! I see that you just began supporting him in April and have already written him a letter. Thank you as your words mean so much! Because Messias is only five years old, he will likely not read your letter on his own. One of the staff members at his project (likely his tutor) will read your letter to him and help him respond. If he cannot yet write, the tutor will respond to you on his behalf but he will be present to answer questions you ask while the letter is written. Many of our children take their sponsor's letter home and show it to their family and put it in a special place so that they're able to read it again. Because it takes two to three months for letters to be delivered both ways, you will receive his introduction letter to you around the same time frame that he receives your first letter. This means that the first letter you receive, will not be in response to the letter you sent to him, that will be the second letter you receive from him. You should watch our video blog that shows the process that has to happen before your child receives their letter :-)

Hi Emily. Can you check on any letters coming to me? I received most of the letters except the one from Jazeel in Ecuador.

Hi William! Since April 17 when I last spoke with you about letters in processing for you, our records indicate that you can expect to receive letters soon from Yeimy, Anthony, Erika, Daysi, Laura, Maricela, Maria, and Marjorie.

Thanky very much. They are going to keep me busy writing letters for sure. Daysi sure likes writing letters. I just counted how many I've received from my sponsor kids. That will be the 27th one from Her in 4 years. Watch out for that one. From the first photos of her looking like a child who's not sure who she is to I KNOW who I am in Christ.
