Your sponsored child might live in a culture that recognizes only two seasons — such as wet and dry or rainy and hot. There’s an easy way to find out more: Ask in your next letter!
- What time of year does spring come in your country?
- When is the planting season in your country?
- What colors of flowers grow near your home, school or church?
- Do you like to smell flowers? Which one smells the best?
- What is your favorite season? What do you like most about it?
Writing Letters at Mother’s Day
Many countries set aside a day to celebrate mothers — even if it’s not the second Sunday in May like in the U.S. Any time of year in any country is an excellent time to honor moms! If you know that your sponsored child doesn’t live with his or her mother, you could change these questions to make them about a grandmother, aunt or teacher.
- What is something you love about your mother or caregiver?
- Does your mother have a favorite Bible verse?
- What is your mother’s favorite thing to do?
- How do you and your mother spend time together?
- What makes you proud of your mother?
Writing Letters in the Summer
You and the child you sponsor might experience summer at different times of the year, depending on where he or she lives. Here are some questions you could ask to find out more!
- When does summer start and end in your country?
- What is your favorite thing to do in the summer?
- Do you go to school during the summer months?
- Is there a sport you like to play during the summer?
- What is your favorite thing to eat when it’s hot outside?
