Correspondence Changes, and a Guest Post!

There are some exciting changes coming to the way that Compassion processes our letters. I heard a bit about them in 2014 when I visited Tanzania, but they will finally be implemented over the next few weeks! To state it very simply, most of our correspondence with our children will be transmitted digitally now- letters will be scanned and sent to the country offices, then printed (the prints are gorgeous) and distributed to the kids, and vice versa. Not only will this mean faster letters for us, but I imagine that eliminating most of their postage costs will save Compassion thousands and thousands of dollars, to distribute in other ways in the ministry!

My friend Hannah shared the text of some facebook posts talking about these new changes, as well as my thoughts on ministry in perspective. We have chatted several times recently about things that are happening in the sponsor community, and how they relate to us- but reminding each other that no matter how we feel about what happens, good or bad, the most important thing to remember is that God has called us to minister to these children, and that may not always follow the plans we have in place for ourselves! Hop on over to her blog to check out the full post. :)


  1. Thanks for sharing on my blog! And did you see that the changes could help save up to $2.2 million a year? That's worth the change for the sake of the kids!!!

  2. Thanks for sharing this Jessi, I hadn't heard about it yet. Sounds like a great way to process things faster and allow reallocation of money to other ministry purposes.
