Missionary Greenie Package

My sister-in-law recently went to the Missionary Training Center (MTC) in Provo to prepare for her mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints.  Her first week in I sent her a "greenie" package.  It was a great MTC gift, and didn't cost much.

Oftentimes, new missionaries are referred to as "greenies."  I packed a box full of green-themed gifts to brighten her day.

I found Mike & Ikes, wintergreen life savers, mint oreos, and mint kisses to snack on.  I also included a green canister of nuts in case she was in the mood for a healthy snack.  Finally, I found green printed notepads, and cards with a green pen.  Missionaries are always in need of tiny note pads to jot down appointments or notes, and cards to send notes to their friends and family.

This package was a huge success - she loved it!

  2. So cool she's there while David Archeletta is! I'm so curious if he'll sing any special musical numbers for them....some of the most amazing rendition of the hymns I've ever heard were from Elders and Sisters in the MTC. This package was such a neat idea!! Wish I had a missionary to send one to as well, will have to log away this idea for later :)
