Wanting to slow down and write more words of life this year? We’re looking for volunteer correspondents to write to Compassion children whose sponsors are unable to write to them. Letters are so important for the confidence and motivation of Compassion kids, and this is a great way to invest in the life of a child through letters, scripture and words of encouragement. Email us for more information and to sign up to be a volunteer correspondent!
