I need to cancel our sponsorship of Maribel Ajno. My budget has been decreased by 60% for 2018, and I cannot afford to continue this relationship, unfortunately.

Hello Erika. I am sorry to hear that your youth ministries budget has been cut. I will pray that God will provide the knowledge and persuasion needed to lead our teens back in to the church and away from the world. I also work with youth here in Colorado Springs and completely understand the challenge of keeping our kids active in Christ and away from the influence of the evil one. There are just so many distractions in this world. I really appreciate that your church has partnered with Compassion and ministered to Maribel for so long. I show that you have been sponsoring her for almost 10 years now and that she is now a youth herself. How amazing that the youth of your church are reaching out to help children in need around the world. Is there anything that we can do to keep you connected to Maribel? I am able to provide some temporary financial relief if this would help. I can pause your contribution on the account for three months. This would take care of January, February and March. The contributions would resume in April, but if things are still not looking good, we can see what more we can do to help at that time. Maybe one of the families at the church or one of the staff would be willing to take over the sponsorship. Let me know if this would be a good solution for you or not. Thank you. God bless!

Hi Leah.  I truly appreciate your trying to help, but I do not see any changes happening with my budget within the year.  I hate to do this, but it's a step I need to take.  Please let me know what else needs to be done.  Thank you.

Erika, I am sad that you have to cancel the sponsorship of Maribel, but I do understand. I will continue to pray for the church and the youth. If you would like to write a good-bye letter for Maribel, you are welcome to. We ask that you write, "Final Letter," at the top of the letter along with your sponsor number and her number. Please mail your letter to Compassion. I would also encourage you all to keep her in prayer. God bless!
