When was the last time you wrote a note to someone you cared about? When you receive a letter, doesn’t it feel amazing to know that someone took the time to intentionally connect with you?
In 2019, 968 individuals traveled to visit their friends at HopeChest CarePoints. That’s a lot of dedicated people investing in building meaningful friendships! So, with cancelled travel this year, what has our Travel Team’s experience been like, and what do they have up their sleeve for the future?
In today’s blog, Atkelt shares his personal story of receiving support as a child to working at Children’s HopeChest, where he now impacts thousands of children through his work. He reflects on the close friends who came alongside him when he was young and wrote him encouraging letters and supported him in his studies. Atkelt’s story is a powerful testimony of relationships that make an impact.
Continuing to connect others, Chris (HopeChest Sponsorship Systems Senior Manager) drew from his theology background to create, “A Liturgy for Friendship.” We hope you share this liturgy with others and experience the joy of connection and friendship during a time when many are feeling distant or divided.
