I thought I'd share some photos of our picture drawing for the Compassion kids this week! Juanito created a cute card with stickers at the local library story time. I asked him if he'd like to give it to one of his Compassion siblings and here's how the conversation went (with translation):
Me: "¿Quieres dar tu carta a un de tus hermanos de Compassion?" (Do you want to give your letter to one of your Compassion siblings?)
Juanito: "¡Si! A la princesa." (Yes! To the princess.)
Me: "¿Quién es la princesa?" (Who is the princess?)
Juantio turned to his photo book and showed me all the older teen girls (Nancy, Maria, Magreth and Maria, who are all wearing skirts).
Juanito: "Aquí." (Here.)
Me: "Ok, ¿cuál princesa?" (Ok, which princess?)
Juanito: "La princesa azul." (The blue princess.)
He pointed to Maria from Bolivia who is wearing a blue shirt in her photo.
I can't wait to tell the older girls that Juanito thinks that they're princesses! He then "wrote" in her card with a pen and purple marker.
Then he looked through the book and chose to give his tiger coloring/sticker project (also from story time) to Tresor! He then had to "write" a note to Tresor with the favorite pen and purple marker.
I just love when Juanito wants to write to the Compassion kids! What are ways that you love seeing your kids be involved with your sponsorship? I’m always open for inspiration and ideas!
