Five ways to ‘visit’ your sponsored friend, part 4

We’re in the middle of a series, “Five ways to ‘visit’ your sponsored friend” that don’t involve an actual mission awareness trip!

  1. Thank you for all of the helpful advice. I feel like I can now sit down and write my first letter to my sponsored child. The ideas given on this website are fantastic. I have taken notes and will now be able to easily sit down and tell him about my family and my life. I love the idea of sending pictures from newspapers, of what our climate is like and of just simple things that we do every day. I’m looking forward to my future letters already. Blessings to all of you. Jan
