Technology v Snail mail

Now I know modern technology is amazing.  And I agree that it is fantastic to be able to connect with family and friends in different parts of the country, or on the other side of the world in just a few seconds and have real time conversations via apps like Skype and FaceTime.    But sometimes it’s  just wonderful to receive an old fashioned, snail mail, hand written letter, because usually when we get a handwritten letter  it’s from one of our sponsored kids!

A few months back we were very blessed in receiving a financial gift so we decided that we wanted to pass on the blessing by sending a bit extra to our sponsored kids.    It takes a bit of time for mail to reach our sponsored kids and for the replies to come back with translation and transportation etc etc.   But I don’t mind that because this week we received a lovely letter from Bekelu in Ethiopia.

Bekelu is 18 years old and  she writes …… “Thank you so much.   I received your gift and bought clothes, shoes, school supplies and one calf with the money” I have to confess to being ridiculously excited that she was able to buy things that she needed not only for herself but a calf which will help support her family too.

What made this letter even better is that we also received this photograph of Bekelu,  all dressed up  in her new clothes. img079 What a beautiful young woman she is and I feel privileged to be able to be part of her life even in such a small way.    I know that our sponsored kids are blessed by our support, but I am also so very blessed by them. If you don’t sponsor a child please consider it.   It will change your life as well as theirs….. contact Compassion UK  for more information, or leave me a comment and I will try to answer any questions you have.
