I have been making payments for 3 months and haven't received anything except a payment bill. Why! I've sent letters and stuff and I haven't heard anything. No news letters or updates. If I don't soon I will end my sponsorship.

Hi Britnee! I’m another sponsor like you, but I just wanted to let you know that it can take up to four months after you begin your sponsorship to receive your first letter from your child. I’m sorry that you haven’t heard from them yet. You must be excited to get to know your sponsored child, and I know that waiting on letters from our kids is very hard. I’ve been sponsoring for almost two years now and my wife and I sponsor two kids. I just want to encourage you that sponsoring a child takes patience, but it has been such a blessing to get to know our kids and to get to be a part of their lives. The letters have been going a little slower than normal for the past few months because this spring Compassion began the process of switching over to a new letter system where letters are scanned instead of mailed to speed up the travel time on letters significantly. I just recently got a letter on August 18th that was written by one of our kids on July 25th, which I was super excited about! Anyway, welcome to Compassion and I hope that you will hang in there. I truly believe that you’ll be glad you did!
