i have a son

Two years ago I began sponsoring a child through Compassion. His name is Wilkemberg and he's 9 years old from Brazil. I'd like to say that we "met" by chance, but I don't believe in coincidences. I was at a Christian music festival in New Orleans and Compassion representatives were there handing out packets. I received mine and instantly felt connected to this beautiful little boy. I receive letters from him on a pretty regular basis, but today's letter was different. Today my sweet boy referred to himself as my sponsored son. :o) There are no words to describe the joy I felt when I read those words. I'd like to share with y'all his letter and a picture that he drew for me.

Dear sponsor Lindsey. I'm so happy, I took an outing with the project, it was so nice. I like Luke 18:27. The impossible for men are possible to God. I'm learning English with an American teacher, I'm loving the project, the school front is beautiful, how are you? I'm fine. You look beautiful in that photo. My favorite sport is soccer. From your sponsored son Wilkemberg. Happy Birthday and a good wedding. Be happy! Many Kisses.

If you are able to sponsor a child, I highly recommend it. Check out for more information.
