A Labour of Love

When I told Marj and Clarrie Schutz that I wanted to write a brief account of their involvement in Stamps for Mission, Marj’s immediate reply was ‘it’s time consuming’.

Marj has been involved in cleaning/sorting and bundling stamps since I spoke at a women’s fellowship meeting about Stamps for Mission.

So, for more than a decade Marj has regarded this as a hobby that she really enjoys. She says it is educational and far better than watching television.

Husband Clarrie (who was 94 years old in November) started a little later, but now sorts stamps into different values to make the later bundling easier.

Every few weeks I have a shoebox full of bundled stamps delivered to my home.

Marj feels it is a real joy to be involved with Stamps for Mission and when she sees what benefit there is to international mission, and what a difference it makes to the recipients, she is glad to be able to assist in this project.

Clarrie says it keeps him profitably occupied as his reduced ability limits his involvement in many other activities.
