I Hope Someday They Call Me On A Mission!

We have been working on this service for a while. But we can officially announce that we have finished and delivered our next service. Roy, Dallas and Dakota have a cousin who is in the Mission Training Center (MTC) in Provo, Utah. She is currently preparing to serve an LDS Dutch speaking mission in the Netherlands. Since she preparing herself right now to serve the people in the Netherlands we wanted to make sure and do a little a little service for her as well. We put together a Missionary Survival kit for her. The mom (me) did most of the early work but the boys had a lot of FUN putting everything in the box. The following was what we included:

Zuster is Sister in Dutch :)

Packing Up The Box!

The box before we sealed it up. We also included a family photo for Zuster Hinchcliff to keep, a picture of the boys with their Super Hero Capes on, and also a letter that I wrote. I went to google translator and typed in the English version of my letter and this awesome website translates your letter into any language (for us we needed Dutch). 

All ready to mail.

We then took it to the mailing station. The ladies who worked there LOVE the capes. 

UPDATE: We just wanted to share the thank you card we just received.
