I got an awesome surprise when I opened up Facebook after church last night - a wonderful photo of my 15 year old sponsored son Rony in Honduras! A dear friend of mine was visiting his Compassion project yesterday and was able to personally give him my gift and take a pic of him holding my photo and his soccer ball. What a handsome young man he is!! I am feeling like a very blessed sponsor momma! Now I'm praying for the opportunity to meet him myself in person one day soon! If only I had unlimited time and money!!

I received the most wonderful answer to prayer tonight! My very first Compassion sponsored child, my sweet daughter Yirlis from Colombia, just replied to my Facebook message confirming that she is indeed the same girl I talked about in my message. I had found her name on Facebook (but her profile had no photo). I had asked her if she was born in Aug 1991 and if she remembers having a Canadian sponsor named Judy, and she said "yes"!! I had sponsored her for almost 5 years, and she had to leave the Compassion program when she became a teenager as her family moved too far away from another Compassion project. So you can only imagine my joy when she told me that she's kept my letters all these years (as I have kept hers)! We both expressed how sad we were when she had to leave Compassion, as we had shared many wonderful letters! She'll be 22 years old next month and has become such a beautiful young lady (but she has ALWAYS been beautiful)!!! I'm posting her last Compassion photo I received, and her most recent photo!!
