I sent an email to Compassion not too long ago asking if I could get just one more correspondence kid. We had nine kids total at the time (seven correspondence, two financial sponsorships) and I know this is weird, but I kind of hate the number 9. It's just awkward. Always round up, I say. And I love welcoming new sponsor kids to our family! Anyway, I got a response saying they'd be happy to put me on the list, and today when I was checking our account to look for any photo updates, I noticed that our number of kids is up to a nice, even 10!
Our newest sponsor child is....Prayer!
First of all, I love his name. It's awesome. His middle name is Yonathan, too. Jonathan is my brother's name. He is 11 years old, one year younger than my Tasya. His birthday is October 22, which is a few days after my parents' birthdays. He lives in north Sulawesi, also like Tasya- though not quite as far north. She lives on a little island just past the northern tip of Sulawesi, and he lives in the northern part of the mainland. Still, that's pretty exciting!
Compassion says that Prayer's favorite activity is badminton, and that's the only thing listed. I'll have to ask him if he likes any other sports or activities- it will be kind of hard to find badminton-themed stuff to send him! I am so excited to get to know this precious boy!
