Today’s ideas are about prayer requests. Everyone needs prayer, especially during difficult times in their lives. So it is great to ask your sponsored children how you can pray for them.

So what can we write to our sponsored children about prayer? Here is a list of ideas that should help you as you write letters to your sponsored children.

  • How may I pray for you?

  • How may I pray for your friends?
  • How may I pray for your community?

  • Do you need resources on how to pray? I wrote about prayer in this blog post: My Favorite Books, Tools, and Resources for Prayer
  • Do you want to know more about praying for your sponsored children? I wrote about it in this blog post: Praying for Your Sponsored Child
  • Share Bible verses that encourage them during difficult times and encourage them to pray. After all, our God cares about us!

Today’s ideas are about the ocean. Children love learning about animals and the world around them, so it is fun to write about things out in nature, including the ocean.

letter and coloring sheet

The ocean is an almost magical place because of the different ecosystems and animals that you can find there. Here are a few ideas of what to write about when writing about the ocean.

  • Have you ever traveled to the ocean?
  • What animals did you see there?
  • What are some basic facts about the animals that live in the ocean?
  • What is your favorite animal in the ocean?
  • What does the sand feel like beneath your feet?
  • Do you like to surf?
  • Do you like to swim?
  • What birds or other land animals do you see near the ocean?
  • What boats or other things did you see while you were at the ocean?
  • What activities does your family like to do while visiting the ocean?
  • How far is the ocean from where you live?
  • Did you go fishing while at the ocean? Did you catch any fish? Did you eat the fish or put them back in the water? Do you like seafood?

These ideas are useful for any child sponsorship program, but I may give some specific ideas for Compassion International, Haiti Outreach Ministries, and Eden Ministries.

Today’s ideas are about news. Your sponsored children sometimes hears news from the United States (or wherever you live) that frightens them and makes them concerned for your well being. Therefore, it is important to write letters explaining what is going on. Even sharing family news is encouraging for sponsored children to read.

letter and coloring sheet

So what sorts of news is worthy of writing about? Here are some topics to write about, and if you need questions to ask your children, these will work for some of the questions as well.

  • Is there a big event going on for your church?
  • Do you have new family members?
  • Is there something going on in the world? How should we as believers view such news in light of knowing Christ? How can you encourage your sponsored child with God’s Word during times of unrest? (For example, you could write to your sponsored children during the COVID-19 pandemic that you are well, and that you are praying for them. You can also encourage them with Bible verses that speak to the situation.)
  • Have you started a new job? Your sponsored child might be interested to see what more jobs look like.
  • Who are some leaders and role models in the news that you could point out to your sponsored children?
  • Ask them what is going on in their lives. My sponsored children update me every once in awhile with how things are going. And many times, it is something that I can pray about for them.

Short Term Vs. Long Term Mission Trips

Short, long, mission trips, share the Gospel, Jesus Christ, missions, missionary,

Today (June 28, 2020) is Mission Dignity Sunday, which is why I am sharing this post on missions. Have you ever been on a mission trip? Have you ever dreamed about becoming a missionary? Have you wanted to share the Gospel with strangers across the globe? Mission trips are an intentional way to plan on sharing the Gospel with others. However, there are a couple different types of mission trips. There are short term and long term mission trips. Which one would you like to go on?

Short term mission trips are typically taken by church and youth groups for a week up to about four weeks. They can be fairly local, such as working at a food kitchen and staying somewhere besides one’s home, or short term mission trips can be across the country or even international trips.

There are pros and cons to short term mission trips, as well as long term mission trip. For short term mission trips, the positives include:

  • You can usually take a whole group on a short term mission trip. By having lots of people on the trip, you can get heavier lifting type work done; get more jobs accomplished; and show more people of your church what a taste of missions is like. (Keep in mind, however, that short term missions is far different than long term missions.)
  • You can spark an interest for some people for taking longer mission trips.
  • You can encourage people’s passion for and skill in sharing the Gospel.
  • You can use it as a sort of retreat where you can train a closer nucleus of your church for growing closer to Christ.
  • Sanctification can happen in short term mission trips.
  • You can see a different culture in a short term mission trip, and in turn, that can grow a love for people who do not look or talk like you.
  • Short term missions can give you a small glimpse of what the Church will look like in heaven, where we are all praising God no matter where we are from here on earth.
  • You can help a lot of people even on a short term mission trip.
  • Short term mission trips to see long term missionaries on the field can help encourage and strengthen those missionaries to stay longer and remind them that they are not alone in this.
  • You can see how the ministries are going for those missionaries; however, do not use the trip only to evaluate the long term missionary. Use it for blessing the missionary and seeing where they need some assistance.
  • You can also end up seeing many different places while going on multiple short term mission trips, which means that you can help in many different places around the world.

For short term mission trips, there are also drawbacks, which include:

  • You might not get to really know the people you are serving on short term mission trips. (However, with technology, you can create lasting friendships over time. Do not get discouraged. Also, you can write letters to those whom you meet.)
  • You might see tensions heat up on short term mission trips. There are many reasons that could cause disagreement on short term mission trips (pride, jealousy, being worn out from work, not being united in Christ, comparison, etc.) On the couple of short term mission trips that I have been on, there have been disagreements. It calls for more prayer.
  • You are only getting a glimpse of what it is like on the mission field. Do not get to prideful or cocky because long term missions are really different.
  • You only get a taste of what a culture is like.
  • You can only get so much done on a short term mission trip.

Short term mission trips are great for helping out a missionary and / or church organization, such as American Indian Christian Mission in Show Low, Arizona, or Haiti Outreach Ministries in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, or Eden Ministries in Doma, Zimbabwe. However, short-term mission trips are very different than long term mission trips. When you decide to go on a long-term mission trip or become a long term missionary, you are committing to one place and one people group for many years or even the rest of your life. It is a major commitment to decide to move to another place, another country, or even another continent with your family or as a single man or woman. And serving as a family and serving as a single man or woman also take on different journeys.

Here are some positive things that long term missions have:

  • Long term missions can serve a people group long term, thereby creating lasting relationships and building trust with that people group.
  • Long term missions can allow your family some stability because they will have one centralized location to call home.
  • Long term missions can allow you to network with people, businesses, and organizations in order to leverage more resources and people for sharing the Gospel.
  • Long term missions can help further the translations of the Bible into languages for those people.
  • Long term missions can help train the local people to become elders and deacons in the church, which means that if you ever have to leave, the church can still survive.
  • Long term missions can help show the importance of missions to your children, which can end up encouraging multigenerational missions and impact more for Christ.
  • Sanctification can happen in long term missions because you are giving up certain comforts for Christ, so that more people can become disciples of Christ.

Long term missions may seem cool, but there are some big realities that one has to face when deciding to commit to long term missions. Here are some of the drawbacks or tough things that long term missionaries have to face:

  • You may not see your extended family for a long time, unless they come to visit you.
  • You may not have as nice of a house in the location you are called to serve.
  • You may struggle with finding friends for a time, and you may feel lonely.
  • You might have to find a job while there to support your ministry. (However, if you look at the opportunity, you can use your job to network with others and share the Gospel.)
  • You most likely will have to be creative in how you do things because things that work in the United States may not work the same in other countries.
  • If you farm in a new place, you may face drought, crop diseases, locusts and other pests, etc. Farming is not always easy everywhere you go. Therefore, you will have to use new techniques and tools to grow crops for food.
  • You will need to learn the local language, proper local etiquette, and where everything is.
  • Moving all your belongings will most likely be a headache. So you may have to sell a lot of your belongings and buy some when you get where God has called you.

Long term missions may mean that you are called to give up a lot of things. However, keep in mind Christ has made a promise to us who believe and follow Christ:

”Then Peter said to Him, ‘Behold, we have left everything and followed You; what then will there be for us?’ And Jesus said to them, ‘Truly I say to you, that you who have followed Me, in the regeneration when the Son of Man will sit on His glorious throne, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or children or farms form My name’s sake, will receive many times as much, and will inherit eternal life. But many who are first will be last; and the last, first.” – Matthew 19:27-30 NASB (emphasis mine)

Today’s ideas are all about memories! Your sponsored children want to know you better. One way to share more about yourself is to talk about your memories. Were you alive during a big historical event? What were your childhood memories? Sponsored children love to hear stories, and I am sure that you have plenty of memories worth re-telling.

So what sorts of memories are worthy of writing about? Here are some topics to write about, and if you need questions to ask your children, these will work for some of the questions as well.

  • What are some of your childhood memories?
  • What did you play with your friends?
  • Where did you go on vacation in your childhood? (Focus on the places, not necessarily on the prosperity you had.)
  • Where were you during 9-11? What did you do then? To whom did you look for peace during that time? How did that moment change you? What did you learn during those moments?
  • Were there any other big historical events that you were alive during? How did those moments change you? What did you learn during those moments?
  • What are some memories that you have of school?
  • What are some memories that you have of family?
  • What are some memories that you have of church?
  • What are some memories that you have of college?
  • What are your favorite memories?

Today’s ideas are all about love. Your sponsored children need to know both that you love them and that Jesus loves them. So it is a good thing to share the Gospel with them and encourage them with loving words.

letter and coloring sheet

So what sorts of things can you write about in relation to love? Here are some topics to write about, and if you need questions to ask your children, these will work for some of the questions as well.

  • How would you describe love?
  • Share the Gospel with your sponsored child! If you are not sure what the Gospel is or how to write about it, see my previous post in this series about sharing the Gospel in your letters.
  • Whom do you love?
  • How can we grow in love?
  • Who is the ultimate example of love?
  • How would Jesus love others?
  • How can we love others?
  • How can we serve others?
  • Then, also tell them that you love them!
    • I love you!
    • You are a blessing in my life.
    • I am so thankful for you.
    • You are a part of my family, and I love you!
  • If you ever get a chance to visit your sponsored child in person, the trip there shows how much you care about them. They will be so excited to see you, but they will most likely be nervous too.

Today’s ideas are about kindness! Your sponsored children need to know what kindness looks like because they might not see it at home. However, they should be learning about kindness in church and through their schools. Your letters can encourage and reinforce the importance of kindness. Of course, the kindness that I am talking about is a biblical kindness, one that rejoices in the truth and helps others. Kindness is not the same as tolerance of all things for the sake of trying to not hurt someone’s feelings.

So what sorts of things can you write that will inspire kindness? Here are some topics to write about, and if you need questions to ask your children, these will work for some of the questions as well.

  • Who are your friends?
  • Have they ever done something especially kind for you?
  • How can we be kind to others?
  • Why is kindness important?
  • Who in the Bible are examples of kindness?
  • Who in our lives are examples of kindness?
  • In what ways can we serve others?
  • How do you serve in the church?
  • How do you help out at home?
  • How do you define kindness?
  • Who would you describe as kind?

So what sorts of things about jobs are worthy of writing about? Here are some topics to write about, and if you need questions to ask your children, these will work for some of the questions as well.

Book Review: Big and Little Activity Devotional

Rachel C. Swanson has a new activity devotional for children and their parents to learn more about Christ together. Her newest devotional is Big and Little Activity Devotional, and this devotional is a great tool for parents to help teach their little ones about Jesus. Swanson’s previous devotional was Big and Little Coloring Devotional, which I have previously reviewed. In this new devotional, Swanson includes mazes, coloring sheets, word unscrambles, word searches, crossword puzzles, drawing challenges, and more! Each activity is designed to help you and your child talk about Jesus.

Each devotional and activity is split into two parts (parent and child), and the pages are designed where you can face your child while completing the activity and discussing the devotional. The parent side is designed to be more in-depth and challenging, and the child side is designed to be at the child’s learning level. The devotionals provide the Bible verse and a few ideas that you can discuss with your child.

One feature that I think would be nice to add to this book would be a perforated edge so that parents with multiple children can pull the pages out to make copies for each of the children to do the devotional together. Swanson has a lot of fun activities in this book, which will entertain and education children about Jesus for hours on end. This is a great book for parents and families who are busy but still want to disciple their children as best that they can.

This book is published by B&H Publishers, who have a wide selection of books for families and children to learn about Jesus. I am not sure what ages of children this book was written for, but I know that families of all ages can use this tool as a devotional. I give this coloring devotional 5 out of 5 stars, and I highly recommend this book for families who want to disciple their children to know Christ. I received this book through B&H Bloggers for an honest review.

Join in on the conversation!

I always love hearing from my readers, so feel free to comment on this post.

  • Have you looked at or read either of Swanson’s coloring and activity devotionals?
  • Are you looking for more resources to disciple your children?
  • What are your favorite tools and resources for discipling children to know Jesus?
  • What features are you looking for in these types of resources?

Are you looking for ideas for what to write to your sponsored children? Throughout this ABCs of Child Sponsorship Letters series, I am going to share lots of ideas with you on letter writing. These ideas are useful for any child sponsorship program, but I may give some specific ideas for Compassion International, Haiti Outreach Ministries, and Eden Ministries.

Today’s ideas are about the importance of your letters and how you can make a big difference in your sponsored child’s life just by sending them a letter! Your sponsored children are really encouraged by your letters. You can encourage them when they’re going through a difficult time, when they’re facing challenges at school or in life, when they are unsure about the future, or when they need extra attention and care. You words can remind them of the hope that they have in Christ.

letter and coloring sheet

Therefore, if you are struggling to make time to write to your sponsored children, I want to give you encouragement and ideas for writing. I know that with a full time job, life can get really busy, so here are some ideas to help you write.

  • If you have a hard time remembering to write, write on your calendar or in your agenda a note to write at least once a month.
  • If you cannot find time to write, try setting aside one afternoon a month or sometime while on your lunch break to write. Compassion International has a thing called First Friday Letter Writing Club, where they encourage sponsors to take the afternoon or evening of the first Friday in the month to write their sponsored children.
  • If you have run out of ideas for writing, check out this ABCs of Child Sponsorship Letters series because I have a lot of ideas for what you can write about.
  • If you have ideas for writing but do not have time to write when you think of the ideas, write the idea down for writing later.
  • Write their birthday down on your calendar and a reminder to write to them about two months before so that it gets there in time. But even if you do not get the card or letter there on time for their birthday, they will still feel encouraged that they get your card even later in the year.
  • Send a Christmas card somewhere around October, so it will get there by December.
  • There are yearly ideas that you could write about. For example:
    • January – New Year, Hopes, Dreams
    • February – Love, Snow, Family, Friends
    • March – Spring, Flowers, Animals
    • April – Spring, Easter, Flowers, Animals
    • May – Gardening, Games, Hobbies
    • June – Summer, Travels, Landmarks
    • July – Independence Day, Holidays, Fireworks
    • August – School, Education, Books, Learning
    • September – Birthdays (Four of my children have birthdays in September, and it is also my birth month.), Role Models, Prayer, Encouragement
    • October – Fall, Sports, Missions, Sharing the Gospel
    • November – Thankfulness, Memories, Family, Food
    • December – Christmas, Jesus, Church, Bible, Winter, Snow
  • Send them a gift, which can end up helping their family gain income. For example, I sent a family gift to my Joseph in Kenya. His mother was able to purchase a food cart so she could sell food as a street vendor.
  • If you sponsor a child through Compassion International, you can use their Compassion app to write a letter to your child.
  • If you sponsor a child through Haiti Outreach Ministries, they have an address that you can send a letter to, and Madam Jacky Dorleans will get the letter to your child.
  • If you sponsor a child through Eden Ministries, you can send your child a letter by emailing Susan Fry.

Join in on the conversation!

I always love hearing from my readers, so feel free to comment on this post. What are some ideas you have for writing to your sponsored children? Do you ever get stuck on what to write to your sponsored children?

Sponsor a child

Please consider sponsoring a child through Compassion International, Haiti Outreach Ministries, or Eden Ministries. By sponsoring a child through any of these organizations, you will help a child and their family. They will receive an education, food, clothing, health care, shelter, and the opportunity to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
