Compassion Joys: November

We're almost at the end of the year! Since November is just about behind us, it's time for another post recounting our Compassion Joys!

 Compassion Family


This month we received several letters! We received a first letter from Julian in Colombia, and we got letters from Barry, Bonifas, Brenda, Erick, Mary, Victor, Carlos, and Kevenel!

New Kids!

We were matched with a new correspondent this month! Juan is 11 years old and he lives in Bolivia. He is our first Bolivian child!

Photo Updates! 

Barry in Burkina Faso and Anahi in Honduras both got their photos updated this month! Anahi looks so much older in her new picture than the older one! 


We celebrated 3 birthdays this month! Carlos turned 18 on the 11th, Mary turned 19 on the 25th, and Said turns 16 tomorrow, on the 30th! I hope all my teenagers had wonderful birthdays!! We also found out at the beginning of the month that Jayid's birthday was incorrectly recorded in Compassion's records- his birthday is actually November 9, not March 20! Since we thought his birthday was in March, we already sent him a financial gift this year, but I put together a birthday folder for him, along with another card and some small presents, explaining that all this time, we thought his birthday was in March! :) 


  1. Wow! Lots of birthdays and letters! I love the photo updates... Both kids are so cute!! And I'm so excited that you have a Bolivian kid now... Plus, Juan is a great name ;)

    1. I'm excited about our little Bolivian, too! I hope I hear from him soon!

  2. Juan's life is about to get a whole lot more exciting with all those letters you'll write to him - he will be blessed!

  3. Wow, sounds like a lot happened this month! :)
