A friend of ours, Brad, is travelling to the mission office in Munich tomorrow and is kindly taking a couple of packages for us for Jacob.
I thought I'd take some pics and share them with you.
|He wanted his smaller camera sending .... and photos of the family!|
He had taken a few basic things with him but I wanted to get him some stuff sent to tie in with his medical card arriving! =) Matt stocked up on a recent visit to the UK. Nothing like getting the things that you know work and can read!!
|Messages in a bottle ....|
|One from each of us ....|
I really should stop sending so much junk food but seeing as though I don't know how long the parcel is going to sit in the mission office - I daren't send fresh fruit and veg!!
Thomas couldn't resist pinching a few chocs from the box!! haha
To build up friendships, Jacob and his companion will be playing football on Saturdays with the youth and investigators so he wanted sports trainers. I had managed to get everything snug into this shoe box but there was no way the trainers were going in too! Heber suggested just wrapping them up on top of the box - which got me thinking of the saying I could tie in ... I love having it themed!
|Saying tied to the shoe lace ...|
Do you get it? Trainers won't 'fit' in the box ... I know it's good!! But often our missionaries STAND OUT too. They are so clean cut and smart, wearing their famous missionary badges and ready to serve and share the gospel of Jesus Christ with those who are willing to hear! They choose to leave their family and their own pursuits behind for a while such as dating, education and employment as they selflessly labour and serve their Heavenly Father to bring eternal joy to others.
