The single most effective way to encourage your sponsored child is through letter writing.
Letter writing may seem like a novelty in today's world, something fun to do if you’re into that type of thing, but it's through letters, whether they be a quick note or a few pages long, handwritten or written online, with or without photos, that we send the consistent and deeply personal message, "You matter. I love you. I'm with you."
Letter writing is a labor of love, for when we write a letter to our sponsored child we help her emotional and spiritual growth by:
- building self-esteem
- encouraging learning
- nurturing dreams
- providing a tangible expression of love
- emphasizing a relationship of prayer with Jesus
We know the letter-writing part of your sponsorship commitment can feel intimidating. If it feels that way for you, you'll appreciate our letter-writing ideas, letter-writing prompts and suggestions on how to go about writing a letter to your sponsored child.
