Snail Mail

Friday, April 19, 2013

My parents were both very erudite, and also inclined to write. They passed this trait on to me and my sisters; and part of my ministry of visitation and encouragement takes on a vicarious form as I write letters to people I have come to know during mission trips. I was just getting some letters ready to take to the post office tomorrow. I think I may be solely responsible for keeping the United States Postal Service from going belly up. Here's the outgoing mail -
My first "spiritual son" Jose, who, though Peruvian, now lives in Brazil.
A church in Tulcan, Ecuador.
A BUNCH of churches, in care of my "home" church in Villa el Salvador, a district of Lima, Peru.
A smaller pack to my friend Marleni in Iquitos, including one to Levi's pastor cousin, and his niece married to Marleni's son - also Peru.
One to a former co-worker, full-time missionary teacher in Kenya, Africa.
One to my younger daughter in IRELAND.
What's this? One to Florida, New York? Ah, well, I guess even the USA has to be represented!

    keeping the economy strong, people employed and more people happily surprised when they find something other than bills or advertisements in their mailboxes.

    I enjoy writing and receiving letters as they are so personal. It shows the time and effort that it takes and makes me feel special. It's a lost art and normally, a pleasnet surprise! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
