Since I (Crystal) started my work with Zoie Sky back in May I’ve been trying to come up with a way to keep in touch with our Zoie Sky Families. See we’ve helped many families over the last four years and we’ve managed to stay in touch with a few of them, but we would love to be able to stay in touch with all of them. We want Zoie Sky to be more than just an experience, we want it to be a ministry. We don’t want our Zoie Sky families to just come in and out of our doors, we want them to stay and become our friends.
I was talking with my dad earlier today and it occurred to me that with all the technology we have somehow it can still be difficult to stay in touch. See my husband and I have been living in Flint for 5 years now and in that time we’ve had to try really hard to stay in touch with people. So much so that just last week I committed to trying to call my nana at least once a week to talk to her. My dad was telling me today that he had taken her out last week and she talked about how much my call had made her day. Its a simple thing to make a phone call, but often I find myself at the end of the day wondering where the time went. I think this happens to a lot of us. I’m sure we can all remember people who were once part of our daily lives that we rarely even talk to at all anymore. Sure maybe we can keep up with them on Facebook, but to really connect with people requires more than that. It requires sacrifice to form friendship.
That’s exactly what we want to do at Zoie Sky. We want to create a way to stay in contact with all our Zoie Sky Families and Friends. However, we want it to be more than just letters and quick “hello’s” on Facebook we want to somehow form long lasting relationships. As you can tell this is no easy task, and I can’t do it alone. So if you have any ideas on how we can better stay in touch or ways you’ve seen other organizations do this successfully I’d love to hear your ideas! Or if you’re a Zoie Sky Family we’d love to hear from you! What have you been doing? How can we better stay in contact?
Thanks so much to each and everyone of you. Its because of people like you that we are able to change our city one Zoie Sky Family at a time:)
Keep in touch…
