We have not done a good job of corresponding with our sponsored child but always enjoy the letters we get periodically. We are starting to write the CFCA E letter and intend to write personal letters from time to time. Your on line information is helpful and we appreciate the fine Work the CFCA organization does “in this world”! God bless you all!

The English translation is on the back. Hallmark carries them, Target stores, even grocery stores! My daughter lives in San Antonio and there are a lot of Spanish cards there, but even in Missouri where I live I can find them. I always go to gift shops at Catholic Churches when I travel, there I have found holy cards, and little booklets in Spanish. They mail easily.

Inside the box she had each letter and card that I had sent her. The amazing part was she had them in the exact order of the date she received them. She treated that box of letters like a box of gold. A great big smile on her face. For all the sponsors that never seem to find the time to write your sponsored child, maybe this will be an inspiration to write a few. God bless!

When I went on a CFCA mission awareness trip to Chile, I was amazed to see what pride both sponsored children and aging friends took in their letters, showing me the paper they were written on, the photos, etc.

Thanks for your support and for writing your friend – it makes such a difference!

I have heard many stories on how great of an impact our kind letters can be for these children, and I am sure the same can be said for the elderly. These kids really do cherish their letters and it is my hope that every sponsor will take the time to write, even if it is just a couple of times a year!
