Missionary Care Package

Missionary care packages can brighten the day of any missionary.  They don't need to be fancy, just full of love and personalization.  I picked up a few fun things for my missionary today at the dollar store and from around the house.  This is what I came up with.

Granola Bar:  "And if they are not the words of Christ, judge ye - for Christ will show unto you, with power and great glory, that they are his words, at the last day, and you and I shall stand face to face before his bar..."  2 Nephi 33:11

Gummy Eyeballs:  "Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things..."  Psalms 119:18

Jaw Breaker:  "... and above all, if the very jaws of hell shall gape open the mouth wide after thee, know thou, my son, that all these things shall give thee experience, and shall be for thy good."  D&C 122:7

Sour Gummy Worms:  Don't let "Sour" moments "Worm" their way into your companionship.

Reeces Pieces:  "Peace (pieces) I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world
giveth,  give I unto you.  Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."    John 14:27

Gummy Airplanes:  "Fly High" in your missionary service.

Tootsie Rolls:  Remember your "roll" as a missionary is to bring the good news of the gospel to all the world.

Kool-Aid:  It's "Kool" to bring Spiritual "Aid" to the world.

Mouth Ring Pop:  "Yea, verily, verily, I say unto you, that the field is white already to harvest; wherefore, thrust in your sickles, and reap with all your might, mind and strength.  Open your mouths and they shall be filled, and you shall become even as Nephi of old, who journeyed from Jerusalem in the wilderness.  Yea, open your mouths and spare not, and you shall be laden with sheaves upon your backs, for lo, I am with you.  Yea open your mouths and they shall be filled, saying: Repent, repent, and prepare ye the way of the Lord, and make his paths straight; for the kingdom of heaven is at hand."  D&C 33: 7-10

Puzzle:  Just like a puzzle piece is vital, every individual is important to our Heavenly Father.

Gum:  "...choose (chews) you this day whom ye will serve; but as for me
and my house, we will serve the Lord."  Joshua 24:15

Hi-Chew Candy:  Take the "Hi" road and "Chews" to be a support to your fellow missionaries.

Swedish Fish:  "Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men."  Matthew 4:19

Firefly Launching Toy:  Just as a "Firefly" can light up the night, let your testimony light up the lives of those you teach.
