I received my first letter from Zion Benya in East India recently. I've been writing to him since April. Unfortunately, although the letter seems to have been written very recently, it is addressed to someone else. (Perhaps the financial sponsor?) Has he not received my letters? Does he not know he has a new person to write to? I'm not sure what to make of this.

Hi Rachel! I'm really sorry about the confusion with your letter from Zion. I took a look and the stationery for that letter was printed on April 6. Because this was a few weeks before you become his correspondent, he was still writing to his financial sponsor. This should not happen again. Your letters do indeed go to him and he knows now that he is writing to you.

Hi ladies, I seemed to have this just happen as well, Kevin's (UG053600182) letter just came through to me this evening which looks to be addressed to her financial sponsor rather than to me... is this because she was recently placed with me as a correspondent?

Thanks for all your help

April, this letter was written by Kevin before he knew that you were his correspondent. Since you just became his correspondent at the end of December, he was still writing to his financial sponsor at the time. Letters written moving forward should be written to you :).

That's so understandable, thank you much for checking and I look forward to hearing from her again!
