We got a package in the mail yesterday! Some friends of ours sent some goodies from the USA. Basically it was a big box of chocolate chips, ranch dip packets, and some seasoning for the grill.

It may not seem like much to you, but when you’re far away from friends and family, a little taste of “home” (see my post about Where is home?) goes a long way. It’s especially good to get it around the holidays.

Maybe your church, Sunday School class, or small group could think of a way to encourage the missionaries you support or college students who are away from home. Maybe just what they need is a little care package. Don’t forget about them. I’m sure they like chocolate chip cookies and Ranch dip, too.
