Hi Eleanor! I do see that you have letters coming from Rifaldo, Abner and Lagum :). I'm sorry you received a letter from the wrong child :(. When we get this letter back in our office, we can send an inquiry to Ghana and ask that a new letter from Bless be written to you.

Hi Susan. I just received 4 letters this week.I'm still waiting for a final letter from a former sponsor child who graduated in September. My sponsor number is 2802001. Can you check on this for me? Thanks.

Wow, it sounds like it was a great week for you, William! According to our records, Marling did not write a final letter before she left the program.  If Marling is unavailable a final letter has to be written and sent by a center worker within forty-five days of the date she left the program. It looks like it has been over forty-five days at this point. I am sending an inquiry to our field office today to check on this last letter.

hi so I am looking at this and I was wondering about it because my family lost three children in two weeks and we never got final letters from any of them. one we just sponsored and the other we never got a letter from. we lost them in october so I guess that 45 days is up. should we be expecting a letter?

Hi Addyson! After reviewing the accounts for each of your family members, I am only finding one child that left the program close to October. Are you inquiring about Fiorelita? Our records indicate that we received a final letter from her on October 31st. It can take a few days to leave our office due to processing so I hope that you receive this letter soon if you have not already. We contacted you about her leaving our program in September however, and not October. If this is the wrong child, please post the children's ID numbers here and I can take a look for you to see if letters are on the way!

I am wondering if you have another account under a different name that the other two children were being sponsored from? If you post their child numbers here also, I can locate that account and research those letters further for you :). As far as your personal account, I am only seeing Erandy as your correspondent child and she is still currently in our program. I hope that you're enjoying writing to her!

Yes my family has six children one child left my fathers account another my sisters account which you talked about and one child left with in a month of sponsoring him from my mothers account. Yes only Erandy is my child and i love her soooo much. I should get a letter soon too. The only reason i am asking a bout my sister's child is because she does not have an account on this and she never got a letter from her child. We got an initial letter from her but that was all. We also got the letter from the director of the center and it did not seem very...well real you know. My dads child was older like sixteen but his name escapes me. Then i did compassion Sunday in my church and my mom fell in love with a child that i got from the packets. We sponsor him and then like a month latter we see that he has left the program. It was all confusing be cause we lost 2 children one week and 2 weeks later we lost another. So should we expect letters from them or not?
We do Not have the numbers for the children right now i am in Kansas and of corse i left all of that at home. If i give you the three names the accounts were on would that help?

Addyson, I am so sorry for any confusion this has caused your family :(. It certainly sounds like it has brought up some concerns with having three children leave the program in such a short time. There are many reasons a child might leave our program and although we do everything we can to assist them and help them in their situations, sometimes we cannot prevent them from needing to leave our program whether it be they move away for their parents to have better job opportunities, they are not interested in the program anymore, or other reasons.

In regards to your sister's child, I hope that you receive the final letter that was sent to you, very soon. Again, it was received in our office on October 31st. I would encourage you to check with your post office if you do not receive it in the next week or so to see if they might have held it for some reason. The letter will either be from Fiorelita or someone in her project. I apologize if there was anything in the letter from the director that did not seem real and makes you hesitant. I want to assure you that these letters come from the director in your child's country and we understand how important it is to receive updates about your child's country and the project. Because we value the difference you're making in your child's life, we ask the director's and pastor's to write these letters to our sponsor's. If you have any questions regarding the content of a letter you received, please let us know and we're happy to clear up any concerns there might be. 

I see that your dad's 16 year old boy, Alecxandro, left our program in July of this year because he moved away.  A final letter was received in our office on August 7th. Did your family receive this? We did not assign another child to your father because our records show that he requested to choose a child on our website himself when he was ready to do so. 

After reviewing your mother's account once more, I believe you might be inquiring about Nelson from Bolivia. Regrettably, I do see that he and his family moved away about a month after your sponsorship began. I am glad to see that an initial letter was sent to you but because he left so soon after your sponsorship began, there was not a final letter sent. I hope this helps clear up any concern there may have been regarding whether a final letter would be received for him or not.

I hope that when you take your mail off hold, you will receive it! Please let us know when you get back, if it was lost in the mail and I will send an inquiry to our country office to see if they have a copy available that they can send. Have a very safe trip and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

Hi JMcN76! I am so sorry that you have not received a letter in some time from Katherin. Our records indicate that you have written your sweet girl twice this year, one in June and also in October. Because it takes 2-3 months for letters to be delivered both ways, we ask that you wait 6 months to receive a response to a letter that you have written. In saying this, there may already be a letter in processing for you that we are just not yet seeing in our system. If you do not receive a letter from Katherin by December 27th, please let us know and we will contact our office in Ecuador to make sure she is doing alright and to request a letter for you. Thank you so much for sending her love and encouragement in your letters, I know they mean so much to her :). I pray that you receive a letter from her very soon!

JMcN76, I am so sorry that you have had to wait so long for a letter from Katherin. :( I appreciate your patience and that you have continued to send her loving letters in the mean time. We just sent a letter from her to you at the end of December and I trust that you will receive this letter very soon.

Hi Miriam! It looks like the last letter that was sent to you was from Rejena. I trust that you have received this one because it was sent in early February. There is another letter on its way from Togo from Ebenezer so you should be receiving this letter in the next month. I am so sorry you have not heard from Sini yet! I am sending an inquiry to check on Sini since you have not received any letters from her in four months.

Hi Miriam! Most responses reach our office from the field within 6-10 weeks. Your letter from Ebenezer that Susan mentioned, just reached our office in Colorado Springs on March 13th. From here, it can take 5 days (possibly 7 during holidays) to process through our office and get in the mail to you. I hope you receive your letter very soon! Currently, you do not have any other letters on the way that I can see but there might be some in processing that just haven't reached our office yet. :)

Miriam, I am so sorry that your girl left the program :(. I pray that God would comfort you as I know how much you love your children.

Erica did not write a final letter before she left but please know that you're welcome to send her a final letter if you wish. We just ask that you write the words 'Final Letter' at the top so that it's processed correctly.

Hi again, ladies. I have only received 1 of the two letters from Geoffrey, which I received a couple of weeks ago. Can you tell me when each was sent so I can try to figure out if one is lost somewhere. Also, do we have anymore letters on the way. I have a few correspondents that are approaching the 6th month mark that I have not heard from yet (they were assigned in September to the old account). Thanks and God bless!

Hi Heather! I see that you have two children named Geoffrey on your account. We received a letter from Geoffrey Imwana KE4560180 on January 5th, 2015 which I am assuming is the one you recently received. And then we received a letter from Geoffrey Muthenya KE7900016 on January 21, 2015 which you should be receiving very soon! :) So it looks like you're just waiting for Geoffrey Muthenya Kamwak's letters. 


Besides that letter you have one coming from several kiddos:

Yared Alexander
Emmanuel Juno Nelson
Bontu Abeca Miesa
Nyirahabimana Fautine
Isabel Mamani
Ronny Manuel Jaramillo Villafuerte

Thanks, Emily!  I thought it may be one from each of my Geoffrey's, but it is the one from Geoffrey Imwana that I am missing (I think, but I can't verify that right now).  Thanks for letting me know who to be looking for, Bontu was one that I was wondering about.  Have a blessed rest of the week and weekend!

It is the letter from Geoffrey Imwana that I am missing. Is there any way to see if the post office sent it back instead of forwarding it to my new address? I know that happened to at least one of my letters. Thanks and have a blessed week.

Heather, it looks like we updated your address on January 28. This means that the letters from Geoffrey and Isabel were sent in early January prior to the update. However, they may have been among the letters that we had filed for you when we contacted you in late January to verify or update your address. They would have been sent to the correct address when we spoke with you on the phone. I do not show that any have been sent back since then though.

Once we process it through our system in Colorado, we will put it in the mail for you! Thanks for your patience and I'm so encouraged to know your sweet boy is doing alright. 

We still contacted our office regarding Katherine and requested a letter be sent.

Hi Casey! In March, we have sent you letters from Clarens, Dinknesh, Lissenly, and Mary. Regrettably, I do not see any letters form Edwin on their way to you. I am so sorry you have had to wait so long! We do have to wait until the six month mark for new correspondent children which would be April 9. I have a note on my calendar to check and see if Edwin has written to you by then. If not, I will send an inquiry to check on him.

Hi Raechel! You have a few letters on their way to you that you can be looking forward to! :) Since the beginning of March, I'm seeing letters from Wilbert, Veronica, Kezia, Flavia, Daniel, Peter, Wilna, Sophia, Nyiramahirwe, and Yenni. It's possible that you've already received a few of them but you can expect the rest very soon!

Raechel, we have not yet received a letter to you from Lidia but there may be one in processing that I am just not yet seeing in our system. I hope you receive on from her very soon as I see you have already written to her a few times! :)

Hi Anna! We have received the following letters from your children in the month of March so far: Denise, Sabitha, Tumukunde, Akshitha, Misaye, Mutthusamy, and Isaac in Kenya (We just received this in our Colorado office, today). Some of these letters were sent earlier in the month so you may have already received them. There are also letters in processing from our country offices that have not yet reached our Colorado office yet from Stessie, Emerson, Jhonny, and Juma.

Hello, all! 
I started corresponding with Maveline in January, so it's been about three months... :) I've written her three times already, I think. I'm way excited to get a letter from her. Is there one on the way, maybe? My, but it's hard to be patient sometimes! 

Have a blessed day in Jesus. :)

I was wondering if I have any letters coming from Luzence Lakra EI1770041. I sent a family gift a little over six months ago and was wondering if he received it and if a letter is on the way by chance. I'm trying to be patient, but I'm really looking forward to receiving a letter in the mail from him.

Hi Katie! Great news for you :). You have a letter on the way from Luzence, Yahoo! We received it in our office on April 2nd and it can take 5-7 days to process through our office and be mailed to you. My guess is that this letter is a thank you letter for your generous family gift. I hope you receive this letter very soon as I know you have been eagerly awaiting to hear from him.

William, I just wanted to follow up with you in regards to Anthony Patricio Grefa Aguinda in Ecuador. We received a response from our country staff and I wanted to let you know that a letter is its way to you from him! I pray you receive this very soon and thank you so much for your patience as I know you were concerned because you had not heard from him in several months.

I hate to be a pest, but I was wondering if I had any letters on the way as well. I have a couple of kiddos that I have not heard from for a while (but not at the 6 month mark) that are regular writers. Thanks and have a blessed weekend!

Hi Heather! Since the 30th of March, we have sent you letters from Marianus, Michael, Abigail, Akas, Aracely, Pedro, Katherine, and Maina. Who were you waiting for letters from?

Thanks,Susan!  Abigail was one of them, she is quite reliable and I hadn't heard from her yet this year.  Aracely is right on time, the only one I haven't heard from since late 2014 is now Peter (who is usually pretty consistent too).  I received the letter from Marianus today and look forward to receiving the rest!  Thanks so much!

Heather! Great! Yes, the last letter from Peter was sent November 25, so May 25 would be the six month mark when we can send an inquiry. Also, it looks like there may be one or two letters from Peter on their way from Uganda. I hope you receive one soon. :)

Hello, ladies! 

My friend and fellow sponsor, Gwynn, has not received any letters yet from her two oldest girls, Sindhuja and Neha. Her account isn't working to sign in, so I told her I would ask for her. Hopefully this is allowed? 
Her sponsor # is 3600650. 

Thank you! :)

Haley, I looked at Sindhuja and Neha on Gwynn's account. It looks like she started with these sponsorships on December 16. Please let her know that because it can take two to three months for letters to be sent and up to a month for new sponsorships to be communicated, I have to wait until the four month mark to send an inquiry. However, I will check back on Thursday and will send an inquiry if no letters arrive by then.

Hi Anna! As of April 1, we have sent  you letters from Juma, Stessie, Liian, Brian Rukaka, and Uwantege. Regrettably, there have been no letters sent from India recently for you but most of them have written in the last six months. Varsha is getting close to what will be six months later this week. I will check back for letters from her.

Cheyanne, I'm so excited about your enthusiasm and passion for letter writing :). It's always so much fun getting letters in the mail from your kiddos! You can expect to receive a couple very soon! So far in April, we have received letters from Mukantwali Solange (which you might have already received), Luis in Peru, and Johann as well. 

Naomi, I'm so sorry that you haven't received a letter from Dip yet :(. I don't see a letter yet in our system and I see that you never received an introduction letter from him. I'm sending an inquiry to our country office and we will let you know when we receive a response. Thank you so much for your patience with us and for continuing to love and write to your boy!

Thanks so much Emily for following up with me when I asked a few weeks ago about a letter. I did receive a letter in the mail about a week ago: EI1770041. It was a rewritten letter though since the first time he was given a child gift (last August) they forgot to write what he got and include a picture. I sent a family gift the first part of October, but haven't received a letter yet. I was just wondering if they received the gift and if there was a letter on the way for that? Thanks so much for all you do!

Katie, I am so sorry that it seems to be taking so much time for Luzrence to get on the schedule of sending thank you letters for gifts. As you requested, I have sent an inquiry today to make sure that Luzrence received this very generous gift that you sent to him last October. We will notify you as soon as we hear back from East India.

Could I also check if I have any letters on the way to me? :) My sponsor # is 2787338. I'm still waiting on 2 of my kids whom have not written at all to me (not even a first letter) -- Marcos and Wasihun. Thanks very much!

Hi Rowena! Since the beginning of April, we have only sent you a letter from Peter. Regrettably, there were no letters from Marcos or Wasihun. For correspondent children, we have to wait until six months after they were assigned or wrote letters last. This means that for Marcos we would not be able to inquire. However, I have sent an inquiry for Wasihun. I sincerely hope that you hear from both of them very soon!

Hi Miriam! Since the letter from Waritsara, we sent you letters from Ebenezer, Nzuve, Tia, and two from Sini. 

We sent a letter from Creek to Kerry at the end of April. We also sent a letter form Elossy and Jamaica to Esther in late April and early May.

Hi Anna! I'm sorry that you haven't received a thank you letter in the mail yet regarding the generous gift that you sent to Sabitha. I want to encourage you that we received a letter in our office from her on May 1st and it should be in the mail on its way to you now! I hope you receive this very soon and that it's your thank you letter. If it doesn't mention your gift, let us know and we will send an inquiry to our office in India regarding this gift :). 

Eleanor, you can expect letters from Rifaldo in Indonesia, Clark and Princess in the Philippines, Elvis in El Salvador, Djemima in Haiti, Anderson, another from Osmar, and Daleska in Peru, and Bless in Ghana :).

Katie, thank you for being so patient even though you've been eagerly waiting for several months now! I have great news for you; a letter was received in our office for you on October 2nd! Once it processes through our system, we will have it in the mail to you! :) My prayer is that this letter also mentions your generous gift that you sent!
