Women’s Ministry Letter Writing

Event details

Write back to the Starlight ladies on Feb. 16

Last spring, 25 Riverside women wrote letters to our sisters in the Kenya Starlight Partnership. And 45 of them wrote back to us about their lives, their families, and their churches.

On Sunday, February 16 at 1:00 we are organizing an event to write back to our Starlight pen pals. We’ll have a pizza lunch and writing supplies on hand to make it fun and easy. We’ll also have a list of letter writers, correspondents, and copies of the letters we received for reference.

Riverside women who did not participate in the project before but would like to join now, please respond to Anne Crecraft (anne@crecraft.net) ASAP. We’ll reassign Starlight partners who were part of group.

Participants in the earlier correspondence: You (hopefully) should have already received an email about this, but here’s the scoop

If you want to write back and can attend: Great! Please RSVP to anne@crecraft.net and we’ll be sure to have letter writing supplies and lunch ready.

If you want to write back but cannot attend on the 16th, that’s fine. We can
confirm your pen pal and send you the information. We will give you a deadline for returning your letter to Riverside so we can send them all at the same time.

  • If you DO NOT wish to continue corresponding, we understand, but PLEASE let us know. We will assign your partner to another letter-writer.

If you received letters from two or three women, you do not have to write multiple letters back. Our plan is for you to write a group letter to the women who wrote you.

Also, because we anticipate some shifting in the lists as a result of people not continuing or new Riverside women deciding to participate, it’s best to wait for the final list before writing your letter. See you on the 16th!
