August 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!

it was a good letter month! We received 20 letters total, and in one day alone we received 9!

Each of my daughter's corresponds with 3 kids - my youngest daughter received 3 letters in one day and was thrilled. She couldn't stop talking about it and read them all right away. She found a folder and created  a system for keeping them organized. 

a few letter highlights...

from Veronica "pray for my Grandma. She is sick."

from Winfrey - bought school uniform, cardigan and hen
"I now look smart at school and the hen will hatch many chicks."

from Mwanzia - grandma turned 68 and he is attending a computer class.

I was very excited to open a letter on my birthday from my birthday buddy, Portia, in Ghana.

Happy 4th Birthday to my birthday buddy -

Happy 16th Birthday to my birthday buddy -
