Eight-year-old Abduraman Yasin in Ethiopia enrolled in school for the first time this year after becoming a World Vision sponsored child. Abduraman loves school—even the homework. What else might delight a sponsored child? Maybe a letter from you. The letters you send may be the only mail your sponsored child ever receives, and they’re often treasured for years. Some tips on writing grin-inducing letters:
Be sensitive: Don’t talk about your material possessions.
Be curious: Ask about your child’s country and customs.
Be supportive: Express delight in your child’s interests and achievements.
Be prayerful: If your child lives in a country where Christianity is welcomed, tell your child you are praying for him or her. Regardless, remember to pray for your child.
Be playful: Decorate your letters with colored pens and stickers.
