Because packages are opened in customs and due to the fact we get as much as we can in a box to keep shipping costs as low as possible, we do not wrap individual items. However, we do attach gift tags, spruce up the box with tissue paper, and throw in some peppermints to provide a little Christmas flair!
This year we gave the missionaries an opportunity to share with us a wish list item for each member of the family. In the foreground of these pictures you'll see shopping bags containing those wish list items! In the background are all the items for the Christmas Care Packages that have been sorted and bagged up by family. Voluneeters will spend two Saturdays carefully packing each box.
