First, the good news: I found little Kevin as my newest Compassion correspondent on Thursday evening! Kevin is 5 and from La Paz, Bolivia, the capital city and also where Elvis lives. He’s giving a signature Bolvian photo pose: the thumbs up!
In sad but also happy news, I lost my correspondent Beto from Ethiopia last week. While I never received any letters from him yet, as soon I receive any new child, I start loving them and praying for them immediately, so it still is sad and a loss. However, I’m glad that it happened for a good reason- his sponsor decided to write to him! I hope that they have a great relationship and that my letters had words that Beto needed to hear for the couple months that I was able to write to him.
I have been blessed greatly with 5 new correspondents within a week and a half! I’ve never gotten correspondents this close together, so my sponsor family has expanded quite a bit very quickly… and I am so excited to get to know each of these wonderful children! The first new correspondent I received is Beto.
Beto is 6 years old and from Ethiopia. He lives with his mother and his schooling is listed as “other” so it sounds like he may not be in school yet. His hobbies are group games, running, and soccer. He has had 2 sponsors and not received any letters or gifts since he was registered in 2016.
I just love his bright and colorful clothing, along with the purple and green wall in the background! He is a very handsome little guy, and there’s a lot of expressiveness behind those eyes that I’m eager to get to know.
