I am excited to report that I received my sponsor packet today! There is a page titled "About Her Student Center" that has a picture of what appears to be a church. Is that Lea's actual student center?  I am very impressed with the booklet. Excellent, informative tool.

Hi, Sally! I don't work for Compassion but I'm very familiar with the booklets and program in general. Likely that is not the actual church your child attends, though it is one that is representative of the facilities in that geographical area.

Our church gave me the opportunity sponsor a child through Compassion. I had asked God to do the choosing.  I wanted a little girl around the age of my granddaughter who is nine years old.  After some searching through all the packets, the volunteer handed me my packet.  I almost cried when I saw the beautiful face of my new little friend in India.  I start my first letter to her today. I pray that I will be able to send my love and support through this note and those that follow.

Oh, Nancy, I am so excited for you! Thank you so much for loving and supporting this precious child! Let us know if we can help any any way! :)

Sally and Lindsay, I am told that the photo in the Welcome Booklet on the Student Center page is a generic photo. It is not region or center specific. I am sorry to get your hopes up about that!

Somewhere in the booklet or your online account it will tell you the name of the church.  I've been able to find websites for a couple of my kids churches and even find them on Google Streetview and take a "virtual walk" around the block where my kids' projects are.  I haven't found this with all my kids' churches, but it wouldn't hurt to try :)
