We did this swap last year and it was a lot of fun!

This is a swap to make a new Christian friend/penpal for the summer.

Here's what you need to do:

  • First write one introductory letter ( at least 3 pages long), include a picture of you because it's nice to put a face to the letter!

Through the course of the 11 weeks send the following:

  • Send a postcard

  • Send a notecard

  • Send a flat surprise with a note or letter

There should be about 11 weeks to do this swap. Try to get your intro letter out sooner than later so you can start to build your friendship. On the other side, the person who receives the letters needs to put effort in as well and write back. So essentially you will get 2 penpals because you are writing your intro to one, and receiving from another (whom you should write back to as well!). After the summer is over rate your partner and hopefully you will have a made a good friendship!

Open to any in Bible Study Group. Any questions PM me :)

do we send all these items at one time?

No it doesn't have to be sent in the first letter, it'd be better to send over the course of the 11 weeks :)

Sent my letter out on July 8th but I'm keeping this up so I don't forget!

Sent my letter to Kathy a few days ago but, like Steph, I am keeping this open to make sure I don't forget as well! Not that I could forget you, Kathy, but my brain sometimes likes to take a little snooze!!! :)
