Picture this... You get an e-mail one day from your sponsored child's student center with a video of the entire class saying hello ! I'm sure everyone would agree that the time it takes letters to move back and forth make any kind of active dialog virtually impossible and needlessly frustrating. All we want as sponsors is information. What's the class looks like, the kids in the class, our child in class, what kind of things are hanging on the walls, what does it look like outside, you know... pictures are worth a 1000 words... and videos would be superior. After all, it's not 1940 anymore, and I'm willing to bet ever pastor has a smartphone. Of course sending a copy to all the sponsors would be additional work, but posting the video to a specific url on the web would not.
