Hi Justin. I have worked at Compassion events before and I told people the best way to do it is call the office and give them the information in the packet and they will get you started.They are great at giving you all the information you need.

Most likely you will receive an introduction letter that was prewritten.All of these kids are praying and hoping for a sponsor.One of my sponsor kids tells me in one letter she wants all kids to have a sponsor.I've learned when a child prays God answers quickly.

Yes, it will take some administration time (my experience is one to two weeks) for the kid to be added to your account. I think it hinges on how fast your payment is processed, and sometimes they have lots of payment transactions. If it's your first kid, your sponsor account will also need to be created.

The introduction letter is also pre-written so that it can be sent out to the sponsor soonest. My two kids' (6 and 9 years old) intro letters have brief and general info and each has a drawing by them.
