Merry Christmas for Missionaries!


Here is a fun Christmas package idea for missionaries.  Individually wrap all the little gifts listed below and attach the appropriate scriptures.  Enclose them all in one big package, and your missionary's gift-opening time on Christmas morning will have a spiritual bend and will also last a little bit longer.  (You may want to label the mini nativity set to be opened as soon as the package is received, so that the missionaries can have it as a Christmas decoration.)
