Last week, I finally received my sponsorship packet from Compassion. I had been patiently, well, not so patiently waiting for a few months. I have been matched up with a boy from Ethiopia. His name is Abel, and he is 18 years old. I received my first letter from him last week also. I will be mailing my first letter to Abel tomorrow. I am so excited to get to know this young man. Again, thanks to Ree for allowing me this opportunity.
