Greetings St. Liz,
The Woods family is very excited to begin our time with you this coming week. It has been a long hot summer for us as I am sure it has been the same for you.
I am writing this after standing outside with our oldest daughter, Harper, as we watched a nice little summer rainstorm pour down upon us. It was just long enough that it knocked the heat out of the air and left a cool breeze in its wake.

Sunshine Mail: a New Outreach Opportunity, from Paula Goodson and Tina Ottoby Paula Goodson and Tina Otto on August 13, 2020
How it works:
- Handwrite a letter. No typing. Make it legible with large writing.
- Introduce yourself. Maybe tell a story about yourself. Tell what you are doing now. Maybe tell a riddle or a joke.
- Express that they are loved. That they are important. Give them a unique message that comes from your heart. Make them feel special. Tell them something that will make them happy.
- Avoid writing dates in case there is a delay in getting the mail there.
- Avoid religious comments so it will be appropriate for all recipients.
- Sign your first name only with no address. This is a one-way conversation.
- Put it in an envelope addressed to “Dear Friend”, “For a special person”, “A happy day to you”, “Sunshine Mail”, or the like.
- Be creative!
- Use bright colors
- Draw a picture or use stickers
- Use your own personal touches
- Let your inner child or preteen out to decorate the letter and envelope
- Make it personal, detailed, thoughtful, and heartfelt
- Get the whole family involved!
