When I met Lucela, I didn’t think that she was registered in the Compassion program. But I guess there was a bit of miscommunication because she had just been registered not long before I met her. Because of this, her packet was accidently sent to an event rather than being added to my account. I was slightly frantic when I found this out, but I knew that she was in God’s hands. If He wanted her to be my sponsored child then there would be a way. All I could do was pray, and of course contact my wonderful Bolivia trip leader, Becca. Becca is awesome and she was able to pull Lucela from the event and have her added to my account yesterday! I’m so excited!

This happened just in time because Lucela turns 8 a week from today. I know her birthday card and money gift won’t make it in time, but at least she will know she has a sponsor before then. Lucela lives with her mom and she has 2 brothers and 2 sisters. She is in the first grade and loves dolls. I have so many pictures to send to her, and I can’t wait for her to see them. Now I must go work on her first letter and birthday card. I just love this gorgeous girl!
