Today is a very special day for me. I received my packet today from Compassion International introducing me to the young man in Africa that I will be writing to and getting to know. He is 17 years old and lives in Tanzania.
With today's technology I can even correspond with him in Swahili by using the translation services on line. This should help the translators and speed up the process of getting my letter in his hand. He lives with his grandmother and enjoys soccer, volleyball and singing.
I never knew until one of my blog friends said that you could be a letter writer without being a financial sponser. Now that I am an active member of the Compassion team I realize that from time to time I can even help him and his family by including a monitary gift along with my letter.
If any of you feel led to get involved you can contact Compassion at
