It's been a little while since I did a post featuring kids waiting for sponsors! These are always fun to put together, because I get to see kids who might hang out with my own children. : )
Prisca attends the same center as our little guy Bonifas! She lives in Tanzania. She is 18 years old, and her birthday is August 30. She likes singing and art, and she lives with her parents and two siblings. As an older teen, Prisca likely has less than 4 years left in Compassion's program, if she is able to stay until graduation. Sponsoring her would be a great encouragement, and a relatively short-term commitment!
Maria attends the same center as our Patricia! She lives in Brazil. Maria is 8 years old, and her birthday is August 2. At the center, she will have the opportunity to learn foreign languages and get lots of helpful tutoring! Maria likes playing house and art, and she lives with her parents and two siblings.
Samuel goes to the same center as our tiny Erick- our youngest kiddo! They live in Ecuador. Samuel is 19 years old, and his birthday is August 21. He has four siblings, and they live with their parents. Erick has lots of activities- youth group, Bible classes and camp, plus he likes singing, playing ball games and riding bikes! We hear from Erick regularly- his center is great about getting letters out!
Christian attends the same center as our ballerina Angelina! They live in Ghana. He's 7 years old and his birthday is February 19. His mom and dad are farmers, and he has two siblings. He likes soccer, running, and hide and seek! We just got Angelina in September, and we already received a letter from her!
Junior goes to the same center as our tender-hearted Eduardo! They live in Honduras. Junior is 6 years old, and his birthday is June 13. He lives with his mom and dad, and one sibling. He likes playing with cars and running! I believe that his center has access to a camera, as we received a gift photo from Eduardo for the minimal gift amount. This could mean extra photos throughout the year! Junior has also been waiting almost 11 MONTHS for a sponsor!!!
Luz attends the same center as our Anahi! They live in Honduras. Luz is 7 years old, and her birthday is November 26. She lives with her grandparents. Luz likes playing with dolls and jumping rope. We hear from Anahi rather frequently- after a little bit of a wait to get her first letter, we received several from her in a fairly short period of time!
Shyam goes to the same center as our gorgeous girl Amisha! They live in India. Shyam is 8 years old, and his birthday is March 18. He likes art and playing games. Shyam's community needs a lot of hope, based on the letter I've received from Amisha. We haven't had Amisha very long, but her first letter was written within days of sponsoring her, and we got it just over a month later. The kids there are also working on learning English. Shyam has been waiting for a sponsor for over 10 months.
Ian goes to the same center as our Merlyn! They live in the Philippines. Ian is 5 years old, and his birthday is March 29! He is doing well in preschool and he likes listening to music. Ian and his family live in an area that was hit hard by the recent typhoon. We are still waiting to hear if his center was damaged. It is possible that his family suffered material losses because of the storm as well. This would be the perfect time for Ian to get a sponsor- right at a stressful point in the life of his family.
Godfrey goes to the same center as our Said! They live in Tanzania. Godfrey is 18 years old, and his birthday is March 5. He lives with his grandma. I really like Godfrey. He looks to be about 8 feet tall, and his middle name is Valentine (and his last name is Said!) I love this center so much- Said writes faithfully and regularly, and we get several letters from him every year. The staff there adore the kids, and they take great care of them. I also got to meet one of the staff members from this center when he accompanied Said to our visit day- Brother Bonifas is so wonderful. They're doing great things. I would live there if I could. I want Godfrey to get a sponsor soon!
