A few people have asked us about sending packages-what to send, when to send it, where to send it too. Well here you go:

Where: soo... I know I should have our address memorized, but I don't. However, it is on our blog on the tab labeled "keep in touch". Just don't forget to put our names at the top!

When: the sooner the better! Officially, we receive packages duty free for the first six months of living here. After that, we could (though it apparently rarely happens) be charged varying amounts of money depending on what's in the package.

What: the following would indulge us immensely:

Crystal light packages (I especially like peach tea)
Ground coffee (there's only instant here!)
Nuts-cashews, almonds, peanuts, anything!
Dried fruit-craisins, raisins, etc
Packaging tape
Dried chilis
Spices ( autumnal, Italian, Mexican)
Trail mix
Seed packets for herbs

School supplies like :
Individual pencil sharpeners
Crayons, colored pencils, markers
Dollar store pencil bags ( I want to keep a bag for each of my students...they never seem to have what they need)
Any kind of sports equipment- jump ropes, balls, frisbees, little water guns, water balloon kits,etc
CDs of songs-Christian or otherwise
Coloring books-Scooby Doo, Disney, religious

If you do send a package, comment and let us know so we can try and track how long packages take, etc! Malo aupito!


  1. Plenty of pencil sharpeners are coming your way. Ordered in bulk.

  2. Hi Alissa Beth! This is Kari (Milson) formerly from Healdton FBC...I am going to get a box of goodies and ship to you. I will comment again when I ship it. Praying for you and Mark on this new adventure! God bless you sweet girl!

  3. we're sending a bunch of stuff...hope it makes it.
