"We cannot afford to neglect this heaven-inspired program.  It can bring spiritual growth to each member of the family, helping him or her to withstand the temptations which are everywhere.  The lessons learned in the home are those that last the longest."  ~ President Thomas S. Monson













As our Missionaries are serving in multiple countries (Ecuador, Spain, Tahiti, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, and the U.S.) we thought it would be fun to send them a box of Family Home Evening Lessons that they could share with a family in their respective areas.  We made them simple, fun, and tried to hit the basic principles that our missionaries would be teaching.

The prophets' counsel us to hold family home evening because it is not only a way to build stronger family relationships, but also a way to bring a glimpse of the gospel to others.  We wanted to help our Missionaries by sending them a whole bunch of new ways to share the gospel!  


 

What Makes Family Home Evening Successful?
·                  Start and end with prayer. This invites the Spirit, increases love, and teaches your family how to pray.
·                  Learn from the scriptures and the words of latter-day prophets to help your family live the gospel.
·                  Add music, such as hymns and Primary songs, to create an atmosphere of love, peace, and joy.
·                  Make it fun by playing games, acting out scriptures stories, and making treats.  Keep the atmosphere light and loving.
·                  Add variety.  Help a neighbor in need, hold a lesson at the park, or go for a walk as a family.
Compare this principle to Missionary Work and Sharing the Gospel with others.  

Forever Fun!!!  It’s always so fun to see the pictures our missionaries send home of them opening up their crazy boxes decorated in whatever the theme of box is.  Most of the boxes we mailed were 12X12X5 which meant the flap size was just under 12X6 so you can simply cut one piece of 12X12 scrapbook paper in half for each flap.  If your box is larger than 8.5X11 (Regular Paper Size) you will need to purchase 2 pieces of scrapbook paper to go behind (Back) your printables.  You can choose any 2 pieces of scrapbook paper that you wish - but for this box we used two pieces of  Sugar Coated Cardstock in Tangerine from the Doodlebug Design Company (both cut in half).  We then printed the MBM printables onto photo paper and attached to our box with Glue Dots for durability. 
Missionaries Just Love Care Packages!
 We picked up the packing boxes for free from the US Post Office. We chose to mail this size of box simply for economy - since all of our Missionaries were serving outside of the United States - it was just a few dollars more for us to send a Large Priority Box (12X12X5) vs. a Medium Priority Box. 

FHE Time!!!  As we decided on each ‘Missionary Box Theme’, which we based around a scripture or missionary teaching idea, we would then brainstorm fun ideas that could be included in our box.  I often wondered if our missionaries realized how comprehensive we were in our themes!  It honestly might have been just as much fun for us to build these boxes as it was for them to receive them!  







 


Depending on the size of the box you are sending – you could include or delete any of the following items – or come up with a few of your own.  We tried to make sure that most of our items could be used to enhance missionary discussions, to be given away, to decorate their missionary apartments and left for future missionaries when they moved on, or simply eaten and enjoyed.  But of course there were always a few that were just for fun!

For this 'Box we had 7 moms contributing items - so we each brought the following:
1.  One Handwritten Letter for Each Missionary with their individual names on them.  (7 Letters Total)
2. One Blank Card for our Missionary's Companion for us all to sign. (1 Card Total)
3. One Complete Family Home Evening Lesson (7 Total).  This could be anything that our missionaries could present to a family they are teaching.
4. One Gift for our Missionaries in the 'Families are Forever' Theme. (7 Total)
5. Something Fun just for our Missionaries for Summer.


You've Got Mail!  One thing we always included in all of our Missionary Box Mom Boxes was a personalized letter to each Missionary from each Mother.  Inside our letters we included our testimonies, the reason we chose that particular item to include in the box, along with uplifting messages filled with love.  a lot of the items won't make much sense as to why you are including them in the box unless you explain how it specifically applies to your Missionary and to Missionary Work.  Many times over I have received thank you letters from our Missionaries - but the things they thanked us for the most was the letters we included.  It's just a little piece of 'Home' in a box!  So don't forget to write!

You Are The Light Of The World
Glow Sticks
Picture Carry the Light by Roger Loveless
Tiny table clock
Be the Light Magnet







Look at the picture 'Carry the Light' by Roger Loveless.  Notice that Christ is standing in the doorway waiting to shine His light in our lives. He is also holding this candle to us and asking us to carry His light to the world and those around us. Notice the city on the hill and how everyone that passes by can not help but see the lights. Every one that sees you can see the countenance of Jesus in your face. Also they can see the good works that you do that glorify your God. The clock is to remind you that every minute of the day is your time to shine.  


Matthew 5:14-16
Matthew 6:22
Luke 1:79
Luke 11: 33-36
John 8:12
Romans 13:12-14
2 Corinthians 4: 4-6
Ephesians 5:8
Philippians 2:15
James 1:17
1 Peter 2:9
1 John 1: 5-7 & 1 John 2: 8-11


The countenance of Jesus Christ is a real visible thing. People can see it in you face!  As the world gets more lost and confused and wicked your light will appear even brighter to others. Cherish the opportunity when people ask about this brightness because it gives you an opportunity to share the gospel and the Plan of Happiness! We want to have powerful spirits and bright lights in our faces. The more serious we are about the gospel, the more we read our scriptures, the more we pray, the more we love and serve others the stronger and brighter our light will be. And that is a powerful missionary tool! People will want to ask you who you are and why you are different and why you are so happy.  That will want to know what you know.  This light gives us knowledge, it guides us, and it protects us, and gives peace and comfort in an ever darkening world.

 Missionary Newsletter


















One year ago I created a Missionary Newsletter for our 8 missionaries currently serving and our 2 soon to be leaving Sister Missionaries. One of our Elders said it was just like receiving letters from Alma - out on your mission - to hear about how your friends were doing and learning about their missions.  This year he and several of our other missionaries asked me to do a Second Edition Newsletter so that they could again hear about how things were going with the others around the world!  The 2 Sisters were now out serving, 4 of our original Missionaries were already home at this point and 2 of those had already married - so I included an update on them as well.  I emailed each of our missionaries a few weeks ahead of our Missionary Box Mom night and asked them the following questions so that I could put it together for them.

Questions:
1. Please send me 3 or 4 pictures of you on your mission - preferably close up ones.  (If you don't send me any I will try and get them from your moms.)
2. What is or was something that you have learned on your mission that surprised you most?
3. What is or was something that you have learned from one of your companions?
4. Tell everyone something you would like them to know either about yourself or your mission?
5. Describe your missionary apartment/house/piso?
6. What kind of foods do you cook/eat and where do you shop for food?
7. What is the strangest or most unusual thing you have eaten on your mission?
8. How do you do laundry?
9. Tell your worst but funniest memory of your mission?
10. How do you get around on your mission? (Car, Walk, Bike, Train, Taxi, Roller Skates)
11. How many members are in your area?
12. How many investigators?
13. What is your favorite scripture?
14. What do you hope to take away from your mission?
15. What one thing do you wish you had known before you left on your mission?
16. Would you have packed something different or taken something out when you departed for your mission?
17. What one thing has helped boost your spirits when you find yourself down? (Hopefully this doesn't happen to often!)
18. Which Missionary Mom Box that you have received was your favorite and why?
18. What are some things that have helped you in your mission life that have been included in these crazy crazy crazy boxes?

Plan of Salvation Kit 

This is perfect for anyone needing to teach the Plan of Salvation very simply.

Scripture: ALMA 22:23 (Aaron is teaching  King Lamoni's father about the Plan of Salvation.

"And Aaron did expound unto him the scriptures from the creation of Adam, laying the fall of man before him, and their carnal state and also the plan of redemption, which was prepared from the foundation of the world, through Christ, for all whosoever would believe on his name."

Song: I KNOW MY FATHER LIVES (Children's Songbook, pg 5)
We lived before we were born.  We lived with our Heavenly Father as spirits.  We are his literal spirit children!  We wanted to become like him.  So our Heavenly Father presented a plan for us to come to Earth and gain a body and experience. 


Abraham 3:22-25 "many noble and great one..."
D&C 93:29 "Man was also in the beginning with God."
Acts 17: 29 "offspring of God."
Jeremiah 1:5 "before I formed thee in the belly, I knew thee..."

"You elected to have this earth experience as part of His plan for you.  The prophets call it 'the plan of mercy,' 'the eternal plan of deliverance,' 'the plan of salvation,' and yes, 'the great plan of happiness.'  You were taught this plan before you came to earth and there rejoiced in the privilege of participating in it." (Richard G. Scott, Ensign, Nov. 1996, 73).

When we chose to come to Earth we passed through a "veil of forgetfulness" and we have no memories of our premortal existence.  Even though we don't remember our pre-earth life, we can still feel our Heavenly Father near.  The Holy Ghost let's us feel of the love of our Father and Jesus Christ. 


"How grateful we should be that a wise Creator fashioned an earth and placed us here, with a veil of forgetfulness of our previous existence, so that we might experience a time of testing, an opportunity to prove ourselves, and qualify for all that God has prepared for us to receive."(President Thomas S. Monson, April 1988 General Conference)

When we came to Earth we got a physical body made in the image of our Heavenly Father.  During our time on earth we make choices and distinguish right from wrong.  We gain happiness and become more like our Heavenly Father when we make good choices. 

Our Savior, Jesus Christ, made it possible for us to repent and overcome bad choices through His Atonement.   
2 Nephi 2:25 - Men are that they might have joy.Genesis 2:7 - God formed man.1 Corinthians 3:16-17 - Your body is a temple.Alma 12:24 - This life is a time to prepare to meet God 
“We came to this earth that we might have a body and present it pure before God in the celestial kingdom. The great principle of happiness consists in having a body. The devil has no body, and herein is his punishment. He is pleased when he can obtain the tabernacle of man, and when cast out by the Savior he asked to go into the herd of swine, showing that he would prefer a swine’s body to having none.
“All beings who have bodies have power over those who have not” (Smith, Teachings, 181).
“No pain that we suffer, no trial that we experience is wasted. It ministers to our education, to the development of such qualities as patience, faith, fortitude and humility. All that we suffer and all that we endure, especially when we endure it patiently, builds up our characters, purifies our hearts, expands our souls, and makes us more tender and charitable, more worthy to be called the children of God … and it is through sorrow and suffering, toil and tribulation, that we gain the education that we come here to acquire and which will make us more like our Father and Mother in heaven” (Orson F. Whitney, in Kimball, Faith Precedes the Miracle, 98).
When our Earth life is over, our body and spirit separate; this is called physical death. Death is an essential part of Heavenly Father's plan of salvation. In order to become like our Eternal Father, we must experience death and later receive perfect, resurrected bodies. Our spirit goes to the Spirit World and our bodies go to the grave.  The Spirit World is divided into two parts: Spirit Paradise and Spirit Prison.  Here we help teach the gospel to those who haven't received it yet. We also wait in the Spirit World for the resurrection.
Moses 6:48 - Because of the Fall, we all die.
2 Nephi 9:6 - Death will come to all men.
Alma 40:11-14 - Spirits of all men are taken home to that great God who gave them life; Spirit world.
1 Peter 4:6 - Gospel preached to those in the Spirit World 
Doctrine and Covenants 138 - A vision given to Joseph F Smith concerning the Spirit World 
President Ezra Taft Benson said: “Sometimes the veil between this life and the life beyond becomes very thin. Our loved ones who have passed on are not far from us” (in Conference Report, Apr. 1971, 18; or Ensign, June 1971, 33)
We will all be resurrected; our body and spirit will come back together never to be divided.  We will then stand at the judgement bar to be judged for our faithfulness and good choices/deeds upon the Earth.
Doctrine & Covenants 138:17 - spirit and body united, never again to be divided.
Revelation 1:18 - Christ holds the keys to hell and death.
Revelation 20:12 - Judged out of the Book of Life
Doctrine & Covenants 137:9 - Judged according to our works and desires
Matthew 12:36-37 - We will be judged by our words 
The “lively hope” we are given by the resurrection is our conviction that death is not the conclusion of our identity but merely a necessary step in the destined transition from mortality to immortality. This hope changes the whole perspective of mortal life. The assurance of resurrection and immortality affects how we look on the physical challenges of mortality, how we live our mortal lives, and how we relate to those around us (Dallin H Oaks, April 2000 Conference)."
“Every one of you … must stand before ‘the judgment-seat of the Holy One of Israel … and then must … be judged according to the holy judgment of God.’ (Teachings of Presidents of the Church: Harold B. Lee[2000], 226–27)." 
“First, I speak of the final judgment. This is that future occasion in which all of us will stand before the judgment seat of Christ to be judged according to our works. (Dallin H Oaks, CES Fireside May 1, 1998)."
At our final judgement, we will inherit a place in God's kingdom for which we are prepared.  There are 3 degrees of glory: Celestial Kingdom, Terrestrial Kingdom, Telestial Kingdom.  If we prove faithful to the Lord, we will live in the highest degree of the celestial kingdom of heaven. We will become exalted, to live with our Heavenly Father in eternal families. Exaltation is the greatest gift that Heavenly Father can give His children. {The gold boy is the exalted mortal.}

(See D&C 76 for in depth explanation of the 3 Degrees of Glory)

Doctrine & Covenants 14:7 - Gift of Eternal Life to the Faithful1 Corinthians 15:40-41 - Degrees of glory compared to sun, moon and stars Doctrine & Covenants 76:70 - Celestial Glory seen in vision Doctrine & Covenants 76:71 - Terrestrial Gory seen in vision Doctrine & Covenants 76:80 - Telestial Glory seen in vision
“Each of you will be judged according to your individual works and the desires of your hearts. … Your eventual placement in the celestial, terrestrial, or telestial kingdom will not be determined by chance. The Lord has prescribed unchanging requirements for each. You can know what the scriptures teach and pattern your lives accordingly” (Russell M Nelson in Conference Report, Oct. 1993, 48; or Ensign, Nov. 1993, 35).
Quick Summary: “At one time we were in the presence of our Eternal Father. There is not a soul in this room, not one, that has not seen him. You do not remember it, I do not remember it, but nevertheless there was a time before we ever came into this world when we dwelt in his presence. We knew what kind of a being he is. One thing we saw was how glorious he is. Another thing, how great was his wisdom, his understanding, how wonderful was his power and his inspiration. And we wanted to be like him. And because we wanted to be like him, we are here. We could not be like him and stay in his presence, because we did not have glorious bodies of flesh and bones. We were just spirits, and the spirit does not have flesh and bones. But we saw him in his glory and it was made known to us that by keeping his commandments and observing every covenant that would be given to us on this earth, we could come back again into his presence, receiving our bodies in the resurrection from the dead—our spirits and bodies being united again, inseparably, never again to be divided.
“If we will just be true and faithful to every covenant, to every principle of truth that he has given us, then after the resurrection we would come back into his presence and we would be just like he is. We would have the same kind of bodies—bodies that would shine like the sun” (Joseph Fielding Smith, Take Heed to Yourselves! 345).
