Senior Christmas Elves

This Monday for Family Home Evening, a few of the senior missionaries got together to stuff Christmas stockings and bags for elders and sisters who have not received Christmas packages from home.  Some of our missionaries come from foreign countries where it is very expensive to mail packages from home. Others come from humble circumstances where their families struggle to send them on a mission.

The senior missionaries, along with some of the parents of missionaries, contributed either money or suggested items to put in the bags and stockings.  It was so touching to see the amount of donations!  There were gloves, scarves, candy, cordless chargers, personal care items, and the list goes on and on.  We were able to fill 33 bags and stockings and still had money left over to purchase any larger item a missionary might need.
