Hey! I lost Francisca (GH024100024) and Azizatou (BF06300165). Could you provide any information on their status?

Hi Rachel! Regrettably, the financial sponsor of both Francisca and Azazatou cancelled their sponsorship today. This means that you are welcome to take over the financial sponsorship if you would like, and if not, you are welcome to write both of them a final letter. I'm so sorry you lost two kiddos in one day! :(

Hi Rachel, 

Thank you so very much for choosing to financially sponsor these two sweet kiddos! What an absolute blessing! :) Would you like us to set them up to pull automatically on the 25th of each month with your other kiddos? If so, I can set this up to pull from your credit card on file. Otherwise, I can add these two children to your account and you can go online to set them up to pull from your check account like you have the others. Just let us know what is best for you. Thank you again, Rachel!

Hello! I believe I’m on the list for two more correspondents, girls or boys ages 10 and under, from any countries other than Kenya and El Salvador. Can I please add 3 additional specific requests for a boy 10 or under from Haiti, a boy 10 or under from Nicaragua, and a boy or girl 10 or under from Honduras? Thank you!

Hi once again, I have noticed I'm down one child. I believe it's Florence? Either way, Florence is not in the list and I don't think I have a request out for a girl in Ghana (4-17). I know I still have the Guatemala request. If I'm missing any countries, add them on, too, with the same preferences. :) Thanks!

Hi Kristin! There are 115 general requests waiting to be filled before you. I also see that one of your requests is for a child in Asia; did you want to change that to a general request? I apologize if we put that in incorrectly!

Hi Sierra! One should be listed from Asia if you have it, but that you shouldn’t need to wait for a child from Asia if there is someone else more in need. Go ahead and change it to a general request or keep it in Asia or wherever most needed. I have strong cultural and linguistic ties to Asia and Latin America, but I do sponsor children from there already and my ultimate desire is just to be a “word sponsor” for any kid that needs it the most. I love letter writing and sponsor a girl in nicaragua through world vision, and recently started sponsoring girl in Thailand through compassion, and recently became a correspondent to a boy in Burkina Faso. It absolutely breaks my heart to think of so many sponsored children not receiving letters! Thus I have spread the word to many and am surprised at how many people are surprised and excited to find a way to engage in child sponsorship ministry who have wanted to for a long time but can’t afford it. I guess I’m just saying do what you want with how to list my request! If there’s a group that’s hard to find sponsors for, or if general requests are what’s most needed, put me wherever I can be of good use :)

Kristin, I love your heart! I will make note of that on your request for a child from Asia - that you would prefer a child from there, but if there's someone with a greater need, you will take that child. Thank you so much for being willing to correspond with children who are in the most need. :)

Thanks! Are those two requests on the same spot on the list or different? I’m trying to think of if I’m likely to be assigned them before I start a heavy two month work schedule from June-August in which case I may make myself a template to prewrite a letter to send if they’re not assigned until July for example. That way I can still zip off an introductory letter or a card or something during that especially busy season.

They're both near each other on the list, since they were added within a couple days of each other. Unfortunately, I can't give you an exact time when they will be fulfilled, but as of right now, we've been filling requests in about a month to a month and a half, so I could estimate that your requests would (hopefully!) be filled by the end of June.

Is there anyway I could get an update on where I am on the list? Sorry, don’t want to bug anyone! But I’m super excited about this ministry and love praying for and writing to the kids I already sponsor/correspond with! I have a whole binder for their information and their letters and the letters I send, and a letter writing box! I hope there’s not more kids on the list then there are correspondents, and I wish I could correspond with 30 or 40 but there’s no way I can do that haha. My little sister would also like to know where she is.

My number is 08800701 and my sister’s is 08801040. Between us we have been able to also get more people to sign up as correspondents! We’ve found many people who have longed to sponsor for even several years but haven’t been able to swing the financial commitment, but who are delighted to be able to be an encouragement in a child’s life.

Hi Kristin! You are 116 on the list of general requests, not all requests. Ofall the requests we have, you are 307 and 326, but if we categorize them just bygeneral requests, you are at 116.

Hi! I just got my second correspondence child, a seven year old boy named Rahul in East Indonesia. This is especially special to me as my mother grew up in Indonesia! I cannot wait to write him his first letter this evening and send him some stickers. He’s precious!
1) can someone please send me his sponsorship history and all available photos! Thanks!
2) and can someone edit my last general request on the correspondence list to a girl from any country any age? I love already have two boys and would love to have a mix to correspond with! Then with my compassion sponsor girl I could have two boys and two girls! However, if there is a greater or more urgent need for a third boy, feel free to give him to me anyway!

Hi Kristin! Thank you for taking such an interest in Rahul's life.

We so appreciate your desire to be such a voice of encouragement in all of these kiddos lives.

Thank you for editing my request! I’d still be overjoyed to get a third little boy if that’s the need although I would really love to have a second little girl so I can have two of each!

Can I ask how I got Rahul so fast? I thought I was 300-something on the list though. Thank you so much! He’s so precious and the perfect little boy for me to encourage, thank you for all you do!

On that 300 some odd list is requests of people who are requesting for a specific center. Or only for girls. Or only for specific ages in a specific country.  They get skipped if the child doesn't fit their specifications.  I find i generally get new correspondents fairly quickly when I request any child any where.  And it takes longer when I start specifying.

Hello Kristin! When we assigned you Rahul, though you around 300 on the list of general requests, you were actually around third on the list for a child from Asia. This is why you were able to be assigned as Rahul's correspondent so quickly. :)

Oh, is it a lot harder to find correspondents for boys? If so go ahead and put me on for either a boy to a girl again! If it’s about the same, go ahead and put me on a list for a girl. :)

Oh, if i was third on the list for Asia, is it harder to find correspondents for Asia or something? Go ahead and make my specifications for the last child whatever is hardest to find correspondents for, or if you think i should stay general i can do that. Give me your toughest kid to find a correspondent for and I would be overjoyed to get to encourage him or her through letters and small paper gifts!

Kristin: When I say any child any where, I figure I am leaving it up to God for who most needs me to write to them.   Currently I feel rather full with the number of correspondents I have and am planning to visit a couple of countries and thus looking specifically for correspondents who I could visit in those countries so I don't mind having requests on the list that take longer to find the right child.

Oh wow Sarah, thanks for sharing! I think that’s a beautiful way to put it, and I hadn’t thought of it quite like that. I guess I’ve been thinking of it more as a fear that there are more children waiting on the list then there are correspondents. The time to wait doesn’t bother me so much as the fear that there will be some children who don’t get any correspondents. But when you put it that way, trusting God to match the right child to the right correspondent makes so much sense. Thank you so much for sharing, thinking about it that way gives me so much peace!

So sorry to be a bother, but if someone could edit my request a final time back to any child anywhere, that would be fantastic. :)

Kristin, what Sarah said is right. It is also usually much harder to find a correspondent for boys, which means that when we do receive a request to correspond with a boy, it is usually filled much quicker. Would you like for me to update your request to any gender? This would allow for any child who needs a correspondent to be assigned to you.

Hi! I just got assigned a precious little girl in Tanzania to correspond with. Her name is Mather and her ID is TZ026500106. Could someone please send me her sponsorship history as well as any other photos of her on file? And also could I found out if she has parents or not and what their occupations are? And if she has any siblings? I’ve usually been able to see those things but for her I can’t. Also, is her correspondence language Swahili? Thank you!

Oh also! I was just notified of a name change to one of my sponsor kids, but not what the name change was. His name as I know it is David Silva and his number is BR057700220. I am able to read Portuguese quite well so I read the original letters and the volunteer writing on his behalf seemed to spell it Devid. If someone could contact me with an update on his name that’d be great! I’m hoping I’m just spelling his name wrong and not writing in the wrong name! But having lived in Latin America myself I know how these mix-ups can happen fairly easily. Thank you!

Hey Kristin, 

So, it looks like the "name change" was just his family name. I do see that he does prefer to go by "David" though. So no change really on your part! So sorry for the confusion!

Hi ladies! I just recently lost my Word Vision girl in Nicaragua because she moved away from the community, and so in her honour I would love to correspond with a girl there, around the ages of 9-15. I know it’s a rather specific request, but I’m willing to wait because I’ve worked with a lot of trafficking/abuse victims/orphans in a girls’ home there and I have a huge heart for the girls of Nicaragua. Thank you so much!

Hi Rachel! We are so thankful for the years you spent investing in Esther's life as her faithful correspondent. Thank you so much. Sadly, we have learned that the supporter of Esther has ended the sponsorship. Sadly, this means that you will no longer be able to continue writing to her as a correspondent. Because you have made an investment in Esther's life by writing letters, you are welcome to pick up the financial sponsorship, if you would like. If that's something you'd like to do, would you please let us know by this Thursday? Either way, whatever you decide, please know that we are so thankful for your dedication to writing to her all these years!
