Many people along the way have asked about mailing care packages. We LOVE to get mail as I'm sure any of you do. Even if it's just a card or letter. There is just something so fun about getting something in the mail that shows that someone is thinking about you.
That being said I thought I'd compile a list of things that we can use down here in Brazil. Some things we can just always use. Some are just things we wish we could have brought with us, but didn't have room in our boxes and suitcases!
Please know that this is a personal WISH list and not things that we have to have in order to carry on our ministry here!
If you do decide to send a package please realize that it is pretty expensive to send a package overseas. Next, please do not declare more than a $49 value in the box as we will have to pay about 60% of the cost in customs fees.
