It usually takes 2-3 months. If you do not receive your first letter withing four months, call Compassion. You should be getting one soon, though :)

I sponsored a little girl in Kenya on January 31, 2012. I have written her two online letters and sent her two packets of approved items. In addition, a generous friend who traveled with Compassion to Kenya in April delivered a package for her to the main office. I have heard nothing from this child and when I called today to inquire I was told that I have to wait until it's been 6 months, which would be the end of July. The representative checked and said there was no letter in the system from her at this time. I went through this with my other child from Kenya also. What's up with Kenya? I have sponsored kids in other countries since January and received two letters from some of them already.

Leslie, it sounds like you were given mis-information. If you do not receive your first letter within 4 months of sponsorship, we will contact our field office. I have taken care of this for you. You should receive a letter from her soon.
