I have been sponsoring a child from El Salvador for so many years...probably at least 12 or more...its been so long i really dont remember... my child sends me letters and pix and in the beginning she did not smile and her letters were short...now she is older and in high school and she smiles a lot and shows me the clothes i have sent her from target...limited what we can send...only 1 lb and has to be 8x10 padded envelope. my husband and i sent money for a 'stove" for her family (mom) so now the mother earns $30.00 a month making tortillas!!! They live way in the mountains of El Salvador...proprane too expensive so now they use wood. My child's letters are in spanish and CFCA translates her letters to me... i am now going to send her 2 harry potter books in spanish and that helps in her reading skills. what a grand organization!! wish i could help another child, but now moneyis tight for us...but our sponsored child always prays me me and my family, since i did tell her my mom had a stroke...she tells me all about her family...i feel we know them, even though we never met them..one day hopefully we can make the mission trip to El Salvador.....
