CFCA sponsored children from Colombia talk about letters and what they want to hear from sponsors.
“I would like it if they told me about their family, friends and their cat. Also I would like them to tell me about where they live, how the city and country are.
“I would like to personally know and thank them for all the things they have given me. I would also like them to send me lots of pictures.”
“I want to know what my sponsor eats, and if they eat what they like. I would also like him to tell me where he lives and to send a photo.”
“… if there are robbers where my sponsor lives and if his work is going well.”
“I would like to know how my sponsor’s family and children are doing and whether he has all he needs. I would like for my sponsor always to support me in everything I do, and am grateful that he gives me much love. I work very hard and send him lots of hugs and kisses.”
“I would like them to tell me how they are doing, if they live with the family and for them to send me a photo.”
“I would like to know how their whole family is doing, and how he is doing since I last heard from him, how it’s been going in the [U.S.] Air Force, what has happened in his life since he last wrote.
“Also, what food he likes, if he is sick or well, his birthday so I can send a card and a happy birthday greeting, how old he is, if he lives with his children, if his wife is still alive, if he is a grandfather, if he still has his dogs.
“I’d like to know if he has received the letters I sent with thanks for his support and help. But the most important for me is to know how he is.”
