Are the process and timeline for exchanging letters with LDP students like the process and timeline with sponsored children? For example, do they receive mail in a monthly group setting, or is it simply screened and delivered individually? Is the estimate of 2-3 months for sending a letter accurate also in corresponding with an LDP student? (We sponsor a university student in Kenya, age 21, fluent in English.)

Hi Debi! I am confirming some things in regards to the letter timeline and processing for Leadership Development Students. I will let you know just as soon as I have an answer for you.

Debi, yes, the timeline for exchanging letters to an from LDP students is the same as sponsored children. It takes about 2-3 months and they will receive these letters on a monthly basis. Since your LDP student writes in English, it is possible that the letters will go a little faster but the timeline is still 2-3 months.

One thing I have noticed with my girl is that she writes back every 6 months rather than 2 like my other kids, so not sure if LDP is on the new letter writing system.  I also get the letters from her via email (Maybe that's a Canadian Compassion thing?)
I don't mind the every six months though, she sends really really long letters with loads of details and attaches 8 or so photos per letter.  She's likely too busy to write more often, seeing as she's in her 3rd year of university, owns her own farm, has her own radio show, and tours Compassion child projects to do missions work (She helps run VBS, and takes photos of the projects special activities for newsletters) (And she still has time to play soccer...  )
