It is my privilege to recommend the counseling services of (NAME) and (NAME OF COUNSELING SERVICE).

Greetings in Christ!

I wanted to take this opportunity to send this letter during the Christmas Season to let you know how much you are appreciated and loved.

While there can be little doubt you would rather be in the House of God at this time with us, you and I both know that the presence of God in our lives is not determined by our present location, but we can experience His touch wherever we are. Logged in Members, CLICK HERE to view full text!
