How can a Compassion Child be a great Christmas gift?
Can it really be all of the things I said above?
I can be all of those things plus more!
It can be inexpensive:
Sponsoring a Compassion International child is just $33 a month. That's a lot less than on Starbuck's coffee a day.
You can pay for a full year of sponsorship at once, or you can pay monthly.
It can be educational:
Teach your child about the world. Remember, Compassion Children are from all over the world.
Teach your child letter writing skills. A big part of Compassion is writing letters to your Compassion child. It can be an assignment for homeschool. Just throw it in one of your children's workboxes (only a true homeschooler will know what that means ).
Teach your child about poverty.
Teach your child about helping others.
Teach your child to look for bargains as you shop for inexpensive, special things to send to your Compassion child.
Sponsoring a child is very special and rewarding:
Your life will never be the same and neither will the life of the special child that you sponsor.
You will soon love your new child as if he were part of your family, and you child will love you the same. Here is one of the letters that we recently received from our little Ismael - 7 years old from Nicaragua.
Esteemed sponsors, Tim and Sarah Tinkel. Ismael hopes that you're in good health next to your children and loved ones. He tells you that he has been in sick, but he already feels better. he's happy, because he started his elementary school this year and he really likes to attend to school. He learns many Bible stories at the project. He says that he has heard Moses' story and he was surprised to know how God led the people of Israel through the desert and what attract his attention is how God with his power did go past to all the people of Israel through the sea. He says that God is almighty and merciful with us. He says that he's praying a lot for you and he hopes that you pray for him, because he wants to become true his dream. He hopes to travel someday to know snow and he has to study a lot to do it and that's why he asks for you to pray for him. He hopes that your wife's mom is better. He continues praying for her. He thanks God for having you. he hopes that you're well. Is in good health your wife's mom? He hopes so.
With love, Ismael Jose Arias Narvaez
This letter was written with help of the teacher Juania Navarrete.
I didn't correct the language errors because I wanted you to know what a real letter was like from your sponsored child. I had asked him what his favorite Bible story was and we had been talking about snow. That's why he made references to those things. And, yes, Sarah's mom is doing fine. Could it be in part because of the sweet prayers of a little seven year old from Nicaragua?
