Writing a Missionary

Hermana Jacobsen's tips on writing a missionary:
1) You can never send enough packages!
2) Turn everything into a catchy play on words!
3) Be creative and have fun with it!
4) and most importantly! Presentation! Tie everything with a bow!


Here are Hermana Jacobsen's 10 package ideas for your missionaries!

1) "Super (Study) Bowl Sunday!
         He was a HUGE Super Bowl fan, and entered the MTC a few days before. So she sent him this fun package.


2) Be sure to take advantage of every holiday to send a fun themed package!
Here are the ones for Valentine's Day and St. Patrick's Day
3) A MUST HAVE package for ANY missionary!
      “MTC SURVIVAL KIT!”

It’s just a metal lunchbox covered in cute missionary paper
            And filled with all sorts of travel size necessities!
      -hair gel
    -q-tips
      -mini lint roller
       -hand sanitizer
       -body wash
          -protein bar etc.

4) “LOADS OF LETTERS”
            A kit with all the letter writing “equipment” every missionary needs
-       a nice pen, pictures of Christ, church stickers, and a journal are some of the things included in this package.
An additional item in the “Loads of Letters” Package,
            At his farewell I left little sheets of paper for friends and family to write notes, quotes, and addresses on. Then I had them spiral bound into this little book that he could take with him on his mission.


5) "MTC STIMULUS PACKAGE"- a refill for the MTC SURVIVAL KIT

6) “ROME WASN’T BUILT IN A DAY”
            He is on his mission to Rome, so this was a fun package for him to receive during his long weeks in the MTC, an inspirational package with pictures to remind him of the beautiful place he would soon be.

 7) Easy tip for a quick package: Take your missionary’s favorite drink and write a scripture on it, for a quick refresher (both physically and spiritually!), then wrap it up cute!

 8) "SCRIPTURE POWER-AID" and "PRIESTHOOD POWER-AID"
have fun coming up to make a "play on words" words with your package, 
to make what you are sending have a spiritual vibe
 9) "MARCH MADNESS"- 
he can't watch the big games there, 
so send him fun things like the food he would 
normally eat while watching it (like in this package)
Keep it fun! - This package is in a bowl that looks like a half of a basketball!
   9) "GIFT OF TONGUES" 
Learning a foreign language? 
This little box is filled with "tongue related" candies!
like warheads, fun dip, pushpops, and pop rocks!

10) "LEAVIN' ON A JETPLANE"
This is a fun one to send right before they head out of the MTC!
Include sparkling cider, for a little "celebratory toast" with the companions,
and basic travel necessities, like TUMS and mini toothpaste& toothbrush
