Hello. We had previously sponsored 2 children for a number of years, but had to cancel last year due to an ongoing financial hardship. We held out as long as we could, but the situation was not ending. It finally has this year. I looked for our previous children, but could not find them on the site. How can I confirm that they are now being sponsored by someone else, before I start looking into new sponsorships? Thanks for your help!

Hi Bill! I believe it was Acen Sharon in Uganda and Wilson Ochieng in Kenya who you sponsored? If so, I do see that both of them have been sponsored again since the time you had to end your sponsorships. They also both receive frequent letters from their sponsors. I think they are doing well :). We would LOVE the opportunity to partner with you again and we are overjoyed to know that your family is doing better financially now. I personally know how scary that can be to face, but we serve such a good God who still takes care of us!

Thank you Sarah! We are pleased they were able to be picked up again and are being taken care of. We still pray as a family regularly for them and for all the children needing help. We received a card in the mail about another child who lost his sponsor. My son has taken a great interest in getting involved (he is 13) and we want to encourage him to pray about it and have a developing interest in helping children and perhaps getting more directly involved when he is older. The child's name on the card is Hubert Kodzo (from Togo). I wanted to check and see if he was still without a sponsor or is he has been picked up already. Please let me know and then we can move forward from there.
Thanks! Bill Vest

Bill, regrettably, we have a couple of kiddos with that name from Togo. Do you happen to know his child number?

Bill, I just added him to your account. Please make the first donation to finalize the sponsorship. The source code is 555099. You will also receive the packet in the mail and can send a check after that or you can call 800-336-7676 if you would like.
