Letter Writing Dos and Don’ts

DO (to benefit your child)


  • Correspond at least once every three months with your sponsored child.

  • Tell them about things you enjoy doing in your spare time.

  • Tell them about your job, school and family.

  • Share your walk with Christ with them.

  • Share your dreams for your future.

  • Tell them about your hobbies and interests.

  • Tell them about interesting places you have visited.

  • Include pictures of your family and about your life.

DON’T (to protect your child and yourself)


  • Don’t send gifts. (A birthday and Christmas donation for your child can be added to your monthly sponsorship funds.You can suggest what you would like Pastor Francis to purchase for you.)

  • Don’t promise anything you can’t keep. This includes mentioning that you’d like to visit ‘sometime.’ To a lonely child this means you are coming in the next few weeks.

  • Don’t make any type of suggestion that you may want to adopt them or bring them to the US.

  • Don’t give personal mailing information or phone numbers for your privacy.

  • Don’t share personal financial information with them.

For all correspondences, please include the full name of the orphan or widow that you are writing to.
