Help Make 1000 Greeting Cards

Greeting cards are being made for distribution at the Mennonite World Conference July 14-19, 2009 in Asuncion, Paraguay. This is a personal and inexpensive way to extend a Christian greeting to a woman in another country. We can use 1000 cards or more and invite you to participate. Invite other women to join you. It is a fun activity. Cards in the picture were made last evening at the home of Jacqui Schmucker and her ten year old son joined in the fun.

Each card will have an insert with verse 24 from Psalm 118 “This is the day that the Lord has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it” in English, Spanish and French.

Suggested size for cards: 3 x 4, 3 x 5, 4 x 5. Envelopes are not needed. Please sign the card, include province/territory and Canada but only include your postal address if you wish to.

Mail completed cards to Erna Neufeldt, 53 Shaftesbury Av., Toronto, ON M4T 3B3 by June 1.

This presentation is sponsored by the Mennonite Centre's Heritage Club. All are welcome.

Sunday, April 26 in the afternoon, there is a panel on 'Anabaptist Mennonite Women' hosted at Vineland First Mennonite Church in Vineland. Bill Klassen and Michael Driedger are also speaking.

Marlene Epp will be presenting the John & Margaret Friesen lectures in Anabaptist Mennonite Studies at Canadian Mennonite University, Winnipeg, November 17-18. The lectures will reflect a lot of the material in the book.
