I may or may not stalk the Compassion site a few times each day in hopes of having a letter come through translation or a new correspondent appear. Well, I was thrilled today to see a new face on my account! And he’s from Nicaragua, a new country for me!
Here’s Abnner’s current and previous photos:
He is 11, but will be 12 in just 6 days! I’m getting a letter to him right away, in hopes that he’ll get it some time soon. I don’t know how fast letters are going through in Nicaragua right now. At least his financial sponsor has been sending him annual birthday gifts, so he will have something special for his day. He hasn’t received a letter in 3 years. That breaks my heart, but it’s definitely about to change! I hope he likes letters, because he’ll get plenty from me 🙂 His parents are now married, and his father is a driver and his mother is a bioanalyst- impressive! He has a large list of interests, including: group games, soccer, bicycling, baseball, marbles, hide-and-seek, cars, running, singing, listening to music, and other ball games. He also plays an instrument- the drums! How I’d love to get to hear him play. I can’t wait to get to know this sweet boy with the kind smile, and I know God has plans in bringing Abnner and I together!
