Care packages always send the same message: You are loved.
What kinds of food do you send to your missionary? And what are some things to think about before packaging up that 80-pound Christmas package to your missionary in Zimbabwe?
In a series of informal straw polls, the most popular items were those that cannot be obtained easily — or cheaply — in a foreign mission. These included root beer (or root beer concentrate), peanut butter, dry drink mix of any kind, seasoning packets and beef jerky. A favorite candy or snack food was also suggested, as were gift cards to chain restaurants. Another suggestion was to send Popsicle molds with Kool-Aid or Jell-O, especially for missions with hot climates.
