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.


  1. Hello There! I just found out about this super-interesting and fun project! I wish we would have heard of it on time! Is it really to late to participate? Did you get the 1000 cards done? Quite a few of the ladies from our church love making cards and it would have been a great and fun thing to do together! Please let me know if it really still too late to participate or if we still have time. Thank you!

  2. Hi Maryvel,
    Good to hear from you. Yes, please make some cards - there is still time. If you can get them to me by the end of June I will take them along to Paraguay. My address is on my profile. Thanks. Erna Neufeldt
