Soldier's Angels offers resources to our military serving overseas. Their web site states:
The Letter Writing Team (LWT) is a team of amazing Angels who enjoy writing to our heroes, and who know how important it is for the service members to hear their name called at mail call. Sadly some service members get no mail at all from back home. LWT Angels write to service members who are waiting for adoption through our Deployed Adoption Team and to those who might need additional support. Angels on this team are required to write as few as one letter a month but some write as many as 21 letters per week!
They offer many other services also. If you are looking for an easy way to minister that doesn't consume a lot of time, this is a perfect opportunity.

When it comes to giving, one excuse I hear quite often is, How do I know that homeless person isn't faking it? How do I know they aren't going to spend my $1.00 on alcohol....bla bla bla. Jesus dodn't tell us to do a background check before we give, he simply said that When we do to the least of these, we are doing it as unto him.
But anyway, if it makes you feel better, you can try this outreach. Have bags prepare and stored in your car to give away to the homeless. Some items that can be out in your homeless kits include: Toothbrush/Toothpaste, socks, Tylenol, gospel of John, Water, band aids and whatever else you think would be useful. These are a great way to spread the gospel in love!
This is a tactic that I think is so cool!!!
A friend of mine, who is very shy was trying to think of ways to spread the gospel and not draw attention to himself. SO he pulled out a phone book and picked random names and addresses.
He would send out a letter with no return address or with a corny return label like "heaven express" or something.
In the envelope he would place a tract, and depending on what the Lord lead him to do , sometimes he would put food gift cards, money or just a hand written letter.
Many people find this hard, because they want to see immediate results or be able to tick a box with how many people they "lead to the Lord". With this method, you never know what impact the planted seed will have, at least until we reach eternity!
Remember those who are in prison, as though in prison with them, and those who are mistreated, since you also are in the body.
Hebrews 13:3 ESV
Today's evangelism opportunity is a great one for those who may be homebound, or have limited time. Many of us are not always able to just go visit the prison and talk to people, but thanks to modern technology, you can send email to incarcerated people, through e-mail or physical mail.
The Bible talks many times about serving those imprisoned, and this is the perfect opportunity to bring hope to people who have a lot of time to think and seek God. Prisoners get great joy just receiving a letter, giving you an open door to spread the gospel.
