Blessings Arrived From Hoover, AL

Melissa and her class at church of precious young ladies have gathered and mailed these wonderful items to us. These young ladies learn about missions and missionaries at church, and then turn around and do special projects as the Lord directs.

(Get a load of this!!!)

Melissa said after my post about the cost of no stick cooking spray in Croatia (it's not even available in Portugal) that she was moved to encourage her class to collect items that are hard to find on the mission field.

Convenience items are almost non-existent here, so all these items will be cherished!

The girls have already carried Fruit Roll Ups to school to show the kids how cool American snacks are! And with these sugar free snacks, I've been given that boost I needed with my diet.

Two boxes arrived yesterday with what appears to be all the items pictures here except the Pam spray. Due to restrictions about aerosol cans, they'll have to ship the Pam spray by boat.

I tell you what....after all the trouble these folks have gone through to be a blessing to us...I'm so humbled it makes me want to cry.

Thank you Melissa and girls!

Our prayers are that God would bless you abundantly for your thoughtfulness and sacrifice.

I remember when Melissa posted about the package and now it´s arrived. It seems like forever when we are waiting for things to arrive.

Well,we have finished all the tests I that I could manage to do save one which we will do this afternoon. ;) Science. Just want to go over some of it with them a little more.

Delighted to meet you! Yes, oh yes, I know the joys of packages on the field. I just began this blogin' adventure and simple amazed to find other missionary moms sharing their lives. I'll be following along with your journey for our Lord.

Hugs from this missionary mommy,
