October Compassion JOYS

It's that time of the month when we take a few moments to name all the gifts and blessings God has brought our way through the ministry of Compassion. Join us!

We received 17 letters this month! 

we received a final letter from Rubi - 
it was addressed to her financial sponsor and us, her correspondent sposnors. 
It wasn't actually from her, but from the project manager on her behalf.

Greetings to you in Jesus name. I am AKHOZO, Project Manager, writing to you on Rubi behalf. Rubi and her family are fine and doing well.

I am happy to inform you that by God's grace, Rubi has got teaching joy at her village. Since she has to give her full time in her job, she cannot attend project activity anymore. Therefore, she is departing from the project. The project will ever remain grateful to you for the love and support you showered upon her.

Before writing this letter, I talk to her and parents. They say they are so grateful to you for all the love and support given to them. They say if not your support she will not study up to this level. It will be just a mere dream to go to college. She say she will always remember you in her life. She say she will always remember you in her prayer and request you to pray for her future life.

Once again, thank you so much. May God bless you.


Joylyne in Kenya turned 9 on October 12
Joylyne is my daughter's birthday buddy...she received a letter from her on
October 11th making her birthday extra special!

Lian in Colombia turned 11 on October 10

We lost a correspondent child, but gained a new one.
This is Noel from Kenya.


We received a couple extra photos this month with our letters.

This is Preeti in India, posing with some items she bought with $ we sent.
Looks to me like she needs some shoes!

And this came from Kendry, our boy in Nicaragua. We sent a family gift earlier this year
to help buy materials for adding on to their house. This is his sister standing in the
doorway of the new portion of their house!

We also received an updated photo of Marlon in Nicaragua.

and last but not least, my daughter took the initiative to present Compassion 
to her homeschool "class" this month. She did an excellent job telling her 
friends about her birthday buddy. If you missed it, you can view that video HERE.
