Honduras sponsors: important gift update

Dear sponsors of children in Honduras,

The past couple years for the July/August gift deadlines, we have tried our best to process and ship your gifts in a timely fashion so that they would arrive before the end of the Honduras school year in November.  Sadly, they have not made it in time and these "Christmas" gifts are then distributed in February.  

We have come to realize that, despite our efforts, the logistics of shipping and working through customs takes longer than what we plan for.  Your Christmas gifts given for the July/August 2017 gift deadline will be delivered to the children at the beginning of their new school year in February/March 2018.  

Because of this, we have decided to take out the word "Christmas" from the July/August deadline as that misleads you to believe the gifts are getting delivered by Christmas to the children in Honduras.  You have been so gracious over the years, as we have tried to adjust and communicate the complex process of the logistics of shipping and customs.  We appreciate your trust in us that the children will receive their sponsor gifts.  

As before, there will be two gift deadlines (January/February and July/August) in 2018 and two gift distributions.  Our hope is that the distributions work out to be six months apart.  We will continue to keep you up-to-date on any changes and, of course, when gift photos are ready to be viewed!  

Your gifts are always used as a tool to share the news that Jesus loves them and that you are praying for them.  Thank you for giving!

Serving the children together,
Audra Norman
Child Sponsorship Development Director

P.S. The children were not forgotten at Christmas! 

the gift distribution at the end of their school year, every child in our Honduran schools received a gift, whether they are sponsored or waiting-to-be sponsored.  And you can help deliver Christmas to all the Honduran children: collect shoebox gifts for yet-to-be sponsored children! The children are blessed by the sponsors and donors who have graciously provided these gifts. 

If you, or your church, would like to participate in collecting shoebox gifts please check this out for more information.
