Gifts, gifts and more gifts

What a blessed missionary family we are!
We have recently been happy recipients of 2 wonderful care packages sent from 2 of our Heartland Bible Methodist churches: Port Clinton and Salem.
When Pastor Fourman came to participate in the work project here in Salamanca, he brought our family a care package from the dear people in Port Clinton: wristwatches for the boys, books for Marc and I, and more...Thank you so much, Deron and Kim and the people at Port Clinton!


Then this afternoon, our family opened a HUGE box of gifts from the Salem Bible Methodist Church. Thanks to Missionary President Leah we knew this was on the way, but we never dreamed to this magnitude....as you can see from the photo, there are so many special things that they're too numerous to mention. As you can also see, we have 3 happy boys!


Thank you, Sis. Leah, and the wonderful people at Salem for blessing us with these gifts.

Those care packages are always fun. Usually when we got one (very few in those days because of duty charges) all the food was stale! Things are much faster and better now. We didn't have blogs and email. )<:
