Saying Goodbye

I had 2 say goodbye to my 2 most recent Compassion children within a week, one a correspondent and one a sponsored child.

Abnner, from Nicaragua, was my correspondent who I had only gotten to write a few letters to, before I got a call from Compassion. His family situation changed for the better, so I’m very happy for them. I never heard from him yet, of course, but I was praying for him since he was added to my account. So I pray that he and his family will still always know God’s love for them.

Deysi, from Guatemala, was my newest sponsor child. I just started sponsoring her a little over a month ago, since I’m planning on going to Guatemala next summer. Her parents pulled her from the program, but there was no reason given. She’s so young, and I pray that some of my letters will be able to still reach her and that her parents are open to God as a part of Deysi’s life.

As sad as it is to say goodbye, it’s part of the life of being a sponsor. When we have to let go of our kids, we can only pray for them and send them some final encouragement in a last letter, and the rest is in God’s hands. It is a bit easier that they are recently added children, but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t love them. I hope that they always know that they can do great things with their lives.

Introducing Deysi

Long story short, I’m now the proud sponsor of this little flower, Deysi, age 7, from Guatemala. Since I’m pretty positive I’ll be visiting Guatemala in a year, my heart swells with joy to think about getting to visit Deysi and give her a huge hug in person!

She’s had one previous sponsor, gotten a few letters, and some gifts. Those dresses are just beautiful and adorable. I’m so blessed to get to welcome sweet Deysi into my family!
