Sponsor Letter CHALLENGE! Take a picture of your letter when it arrives in the mail. Post it to your favorite social media using #cohcommunity!

One of the most exciting parts of sponsoring is getting a letter from your child. At first the letters are scribbles, but each year as they grow older, the letters become more complex and fun. Then the day arrives when you receive a letter with legible writing! 

Have you ever wondered how we gather all that information on your sponsor child? Here's a little picture tour of how the process goes.

First, we interview your child!

  • What do you like to play?
  • What do you like to study in school?
  • What do you want to be when you grow up?

Then we take a picture for you! SMILE!

While the children wait to see the doctor, they write their letters to you.

Our doctors and nurses check every child over carefully. Check-ups sometimes bring tears, but we want our kids to be healthy!

After all the info is gathered, the check-ups are done, and the letters are written, we bring all the cards and letters back here to our US office. We enter the info in the database, translate the letters and send them to you!

When your letter arrives in the mail, don't forget to post a selfie with it to your favorite social media using #cohcommunity! 

You haven't started sponsoring yet? Now is the perfect time to begin! Here are a bunch of children who still need sponsors:

Happy Thanksgiving!






A Prayer for the Restoration of Africa

We have the opportunity to partner with Jesus for the Restoration of Africa. Will you join me in praying aloud? Jesus, break the chains of oppression and heal the wounds from poverty, trafficking and violence. Breathe life into Africa restoring families, the land, the health of her people and resources. We invite You to flow through us for the restoration of Africa.  

Over the next few weeks, we'll be sharing stories about restoration. We will also be sharing with you some practical ways you can be a part of the Restoration of Africa. 

Eager to learn more?  These four links will help you to begin exploring the restoration work going on through the ministries of the Grace Center and will help you find some practical ways you can get involved.
