Haley from Life is sweet shared this post with us:


Christmas Advent in a Box...on it's way to Chile!

We finally got Corrie's Christmas package (with her insanely belated Birthday goodies) in the mail to her yesterday...it's on its way to Chile!! :) I hope she enjoys some American sweets every day leading up to Christmas, along with scripture verses and uplifting quotes in Spanish from this past General Conference (in lovely print form from this site, they come in English, Spanish, and French!).

In case you have someone you love and miss and you want to send them a Christmas count-down, here's how I sent ours to Corrie in Chile! :)






We love and miss that girl...but we know she's having the time of her life serving in Chile. ¡Te queremos Corrie!

  1. Do you have printables for your missionary advent packages? I would love you to send them to me if you do. My son is serving in Ghana West Africa. Thank you so much,

  8. First off I am so glad that this idea from my friend has been such a hit with so many of you. After contacting her and hoping I could get what so many of you are asking for, she unfortunately responded that she no longer has the scriptures and sayings she used. She did say this ...
    "Hi Kay-Marie! I honestly don't remember the exact scriptures I used...just looked up scriptures about Christ that inspired me and that I felt could give a boost.
    The printables are of quotes from October 2012 General Conference, so not super recent, but still wonderful! It shows them in English, but there are links to Spanish & French if they want. Here's the link to the printables:

    Hope that helps!

    If any of you do decide to do an idea similar to this let us know what scriptures and sayings you used! I know so many would love to hear. In the future I will make sure to get as much information and details from our guests!

    Thanks all!

  14. I need to send Christmas to Bulgaria. Could I get a list of what you sent and the quotes and scriptures you used for each, please? As you know, it's insanely expensive to send international and your package looked doable. Email is threadedelf@gmail.com.

  29. Just wondering if I could get a copy of the scriptures / tags you used as well. Our daughter is in Finland and I am hoping to get her Christmas advent package off by Nov 1st to allow plenty of time for her to get it.
