1) St Henry II: Sponsoring
This wonderful, firsthand account of a blogger’s journey into sponsorship deeply moved us.
Reflecting on my CFCA experience, I knew that I would be a blessing to the people I sponsored, but I didnít think theyíd be such a blessing to me. Rajesh, Margaret, and Darweshi arenít just random people; they are a part of my family. Getting a letter from one of them is the highlight of my week. I pray for them and I know that they pray for me, and I hope that Indira is in heaven praying for all of us. Becoming a sponsor is one of the best decisions Iíve ever made; if you experience it yourself, youíll understand why.
2) In the Heart of my Home: Teaching charity, hope to your children through sponsorship
Our thanks to Elizabeth Foss for publishing this guest blog post from Shanxi Omoniyi, CFCA web editor and writer!
One of my sweetest childhood memories is writing letters to my family’s sponsored child. My parents have a long history of child sponsorship, and they encouraged us to write to their sponsored children. We were maybe 8 or 9 at the time.
I remember looking at the children’s pictures, reading their letters and wondering what their lives were like.
Today I work as web editor and writer for Christian Foundation for Children and Aging. CFCA is a lay Catholic sponsorship organization serving more than 300,000 children, youth and aging persons around the world.
