Getting to Know You: Sandier

Name: Sandier
Age: 6
Birthday: December 28
Country: Honduras
Sponsored since: March 2014

How we got him: I got home from Tanzania around 2 in the morning, March 20. I slept for a few hours and then got up and went to my parents' house- they fixed me some of my favorite foods and I got to spend the day going through my pictures and watching TV! I sent an email off to Compassion that very day, asking for another correspondence child. I said that I knew the wait might be long, but I had just gotten back from Tanzania, and I felt an urgent need to make sure as many kids as possible were receiving letters from a sponsor, whether they were a financial sponsor or a correspondent. And I could write letters, and would write letters as long as Compassion would let me. And on Monday morning, Sandier showed up on my account. :) He was child #16, and our number hast tripled since then, but Sandier will always have a special place in my heart, and I will never forget the day that we got him as a correspondent!

About his family: I don't know a whole lot about Sandier's family, but he does have a 9 year old sister, and they like to play together! He lives with her, his mom, and his grandma.

Hobbies and interests: I can tell from his letters that Sandier has a lot of energy. He loves to play and he likes animals. He's also a really good artist! He always draws a little outdoorsy scene for me, usually featuring a cat or a dog.

Here are some excerpts from Sandier's letters!

"He is a restless boy but a good one at the same time."

Our first picture of Sandier

"He wants to tell you that he has a pet named Picho that is a pretty cute kitty and he also is doing well in kindergarten."

"He says bye sending all his love and blessings. "

"The boy says he is doing really good at the kindergarten and that he is happy that the storms are not where you live. "

"He says he is thankful to God for meeting you. He also says he know the ABC. He says thank you for writing to him and he says he hasn't been in a  library but that he would love to."

"Sandier wants to tell you that the beaches in Honduras are very beautiful and that most of the people are very kind and generous and what he likes the most are the swimming places."

"Sandier says that at kindergarten, he is doing very good and what he likes to do the most is to learn how to sum and what he wants to be when he grows up is a firefighter or a teacher. "

Sandier's photo got updated just a few months after we got him! 

"Sandier wants to tell you that he and his family are doing well and he says that mom and sister and him play by running and that they watch TV together and he also says he has heard about baseball. He says that it is a very fun game and he wants to tell you that he has never been to a zoo or a museum and that in his community there aren't any crocodiles."
