I was recently reading a journal about a bloggers trip to the Philippines, and they wrote a staggering statistic.
Out of 57,000 Compassion sponsored children in the Philippines alone, only 7,000 receive letters monthly.
I congratulate the 7,000 sponsors who write monthly. It's not a easy task, it takes time and effort out of our “busy” lives. I encourage you to keep writing regularly.
And I encourage other sponsors to at least write a few sentences to their sponsor child once a month. These words mean so much to our sponsor children – more than we could ever know.
Just think, if 50,000 children in the Philippines alone do not receive regular monthly letters, I cannot imagine how many hundreds of thousands of sponsor children worldwide are waiting patiently to receive a letter of love from their sponsor.
Is your sponsor child in the 50,000 or 7,000 statistic?
Will you commit to writing to your sponsor child monthly?
