HI Linda! Welcome to Compassion! As a new sponsor, you can expect to receive an introduction letter from your child within four months from the time that you began sponsoring him so I pray that you will receive that letter very soon. I'm sure that you are very eager to start getting to know more about your sponsored boy. Right now it takes about two to three months for letters to travel each way to and from your sponsored child as the letters have to be sorted, mailed, translated, and distributed to the local centers, but Compassion began implementing a new, digital system recently that is expected to reduce that timeframe to just a few weeks instead of months. Please rest assured that Compassion will make sure that your child receives every letter and photo that you send, and I know that he will be so excited to hear from you and get to know you as his sponsor. Thank you so much for choosing to bless a child through your sponsorship!

Linda, I do see that you've already written Emmanuel a letter! Thank you so much for your kindness and desire to invest in his life! It will make a beautiful difference and impact on him and I know he'll be thrilled to get your letter! The first letter you receive from him will be an introduction letter of him telling you about himself. Like Adam kindly explained, you'll receive this within the first four months. If you don't receive it by August 29th, let us know :). Welcome to the Compassion family and know that we (our staff as well as our wonderful sponsors on this page) are here to help you along this exciting new journey so if you have any other questions, don't hesitate to ask!
