Letter writing: The Basics and Beyond

As child sponsors with Compassion International, one of the first things to remember is how important letters from us are to our sponsored children. These letters are treasured as the children’s most prized possession. The Scriptures and words of encouragement we share say the three words everyone longs to hear, “I love you”.


While you may know the importance of letters and the sponsor/child relationship, you may not know where to begin in building that beautiful relationship.


  1. Learn how to write an introduction letter to your sponsored child.
  2.  Learn how to take your letter writing beyond “hello”.
  3.  Learn these seven steps to sending your letter.
  4. Choose from these letters of love—at least one available for each month of the year.
