GUEST POST: SAMPLE LETTER by Kathy Olson
Not sure what to write about to your sponsored child? Here is a sample letter from the lovely and encouraging pen of Kathy Olson. Please encourage and thank her in the comments below… so she comes back! :)
Note from Kathy: Another generic letter for our Compassion kids. Add an opening greeting and a closing and you are done. Copy and paste (seems like a good topic for the new year).
I will be praying for you and for the Lord to guide your future.
The future is like a thick fog. We cannot see what is coming, but Father God knows. Pilots who fly airplanes must use radar to fly through the fog. Radar tells them about things that are there but are too hidden for the eyes to see. Faith is like radar that sees through the fog. Faith knows what is there and tells us, even when we cannot actually see it with our eyes. We cannot see God with our eyes, but faith tell us that He is there.
Hebrews 11:1 says:Faith means being sure of the things we hope for and knowing that something is real even if we do not see it.
Romans 10:17 tells us that faith comes by hearing the words of God. In other words, make time to read your Bible and your faith will grow. The Bible contains the words of God and the wisdom that you will need for success in life. I encourage you to read your Bible regularly. It will become a good habit that will follow you as you become an adult and will continually bless your life. Seek the Lord in the Bible and you will find Him. He knows you and loves you more than you can imagine.
POP QUIZ: I normally close off my letters with a variation of something like, ‘We love you and pray for you and your family each day. Stay close to the Lord. He loves you so much. Read His word and memorise it until it becomes a part of your life. Remember, you can talk to Him about anything. Please share your package with your family and friends. Lots of hugs and kisses from your other Mom and Dad.’ And then I put a heart next to our names. How do you normally sign off your letters?
