Questions to my Compassion International friends

Okay, I know there are more of you reading than on my "follower" list so hopefully someone out there reading this has an answer.

I sent Efrata (Ethiopia) a family gift of $100 in June. I haven't heard anything yet. I did recieve a letter dated in September talking about the birthday money that I sent back in April (it was written 5 months after I sent the birthday money) but nothing was mentioned about the family gift.

How long has it taken you to get a response to a family gift? It's been 6 months since it was sent. I'm wondering because I also sent Nanese (Haiti) money this summer & got a reply from her less than 3 months later.

Is 6+ months normal or should I check with Compassion? I'd really like to know what they got (and that they got it.)



  1. I'd call and have them check on that.

  2. If it takes a long time, it generally means that they are sending a photo. At least, that has been my experience!
