There are very few things as exciting to a missionary kid as receiving a package from friends and family in the States. No matter how big or how small…When my girls learn that the delivery man has dropped off a box for them… instant wiggles, giggles, and squeals of delight ensue.

But Christmas packages?

Receiving a Christmas package is quite possibly one of the most exciting moments of the holiday season for them! There’s jumping and diving and more squealing and laughing.  They will talk about it for days. It’s so very special.

Especially when it’s a package from Grandma!

Thank you, Grandma, for the presents to put under the tree and for all the extra special goodies! You have no idea how much it means to us. Thank you for always being such a blessing.  We love you and miss you bunches!!

Love,

Natasha (and fam)

Have you ever thought about sending one of your missionaries a missionary care package? Consider trying it as a family project next Christmas! It doesn’t have to be big…the smallest thing can oftentimes be the biggest encouragement!
