Anniversary Giveaway #10 - A Gift Box from America!

What would you want in this box?!
 
1. To enter, just post a favorite verse that has encouraged you on the field, along with the one thing you would love to find in a package from America (If you are Canadian or Australian...I'll see what I can do about Maple Syrup or Vegemite.)

2. This is intended for overseas missionaries, but EVERYONE is encouraged participate: home missionaries, pre-field missionaries, furlough missionaries, or missionaries who may already get weekly packages from the US (yeah, right!). If you win, and are not "overseas" you may select ANY other missionary in this group to pass your blessing along to. So don't be modest, PARTICIPATE in the fun.

3. The winner will submit a wish list of grocery and personal items (no ministry!) that would fit in a large priority mail box.

This gift is being generously donated by a stateside missionary who would like to remain anonymous.  Thanks Mrs. Anonymous!

Psalm 18:30, "As for God, his way is perfect: the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all those that trust in him.
For me, this verse says it all - it reminds me that God knows what He is doing, even when I don't. It reminds me that His Word never fails, and that I can run to Him as His daughter at any moment!

Cafe Vienna from International Coffees would be so much fun to find in a box from America!

So many verses to choose from but I have to come back to my life verses which have sustained us through so many choices--Proverbs 3:5,6 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

Thank you ahead of time for whomever and from whomever who has given such a special gift from the States! God bless you!

Nahum 1:7 is so precious to me.

Woops! I forgot to put what I would like to have in the box! Pepperoni... Lovely, American, fattening, salty, pizza pepperoni!

What an awesome giveaway! Psalm 61:1-2 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
I would love to have Chocolate Covered Almonds!

1 Thessalonians 5:24, "Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it." When I feel inadequate--most of the time, and especially when the task is lots bigger than I am--I know that the Lord has called me, and He will do it. Total reliance on Him.

Dream box? Would have to have a good Christian book in it or a new Bible study. :o) I also love something for the home, like a couple of place mats, or a pretty hand towel or kitchen towel.

Matthew 10:16 has been a help and a good reminder to me in working to reach lost souls on the mission field. In both parts of the verse, it is very applicable to the life of a missionary. We are sent forth as sheep in the midst of wolves - reaching the lost is not an easy task. In the second half of the verse it gives us good advice as to how we should serve and present Jesus Christ to the unsaved - being wise as serpents and harmless as doves.

Psalm 34:8 is the verse that has gotten me through many a rough day ~ O taste and see that the Lord is good, blessed is the man that trusteth in Him. And as far as a box goes ~ I'm craving peanut butter Oreos and real maple syrup :)
Thanks for such a thoughtful giveaway!

And for what I would love to receive in a package...a lovely summer tablecloth for my kitchen table, Butterfingers, devotional book/s, and Reese's peanut butter anything! :) Thank you to Mrs. Anonymous for this wonderful giveaway!!!

I've only ever been a short term missionary. And our family verse this summer was Galations 6:9-10. 9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. 10 Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

For me, since I had my small child with me, it meant I had the opportunity to bless the other people on the mission trip with me. If I won, I would donate the box to one of our long term single missionaries on the field.

Proverbs 3:5,6 just like Vicki Mansell. This has been a verse that has helped me through many moments in my life. What I would like sent in a box would be French Vanilla or Pumpkin Spice powdered creamer for coffee. Thank you all so much!

II Cor.12:9 "But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for myu power is made perfect in weakness."

This has been my favorite verse living in Lesotho, Africa.

I would love to have a Pumpkin Spice creamer or even just the spice to have and make fall goodies with.

But Jesus beheld them, and said unto them, With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible. Matthew 19:26

I always ask for chocolate chips and pepperoni, but dark chocolate is awesome too!

Sarah LeClercq said...

(Psa 37:4) Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.

(Psa 37:5) Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

These verses have been mine since I was a freshmen in college!!

We would love to have anything to do with fall! Pumpkin pie spice is a favorite of mine and pumpkin coffee creamer.

Ps. 112:7 - "He shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord.

Carol Meyer said...

Romans 8:38-39 Trials and tribulations, separation from family and friends, NOTHING can take me away from God's love for me!

There's a lot of things that come to mind...but on the top of the list is Lipton Tea bags and Hot Chocolate!! ;-)

Sandy said...

Psalm 16:11 has really helped me over and over again. Especially when I miss my family the Lord reminds me, "Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence [is] fulness of joy; at thy right hand [there are] pleasures for evermore."

Isaiah 43:1 "Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name: thou art mine."

Thank you, Mrs. Anonymous, for this special give-away. How special! One thing I would love to find in a care package would be peanut M&Ms. The cherry ones are great, too!

Duet. 31:6
"Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the LORD thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee."

Thank you Mrs. Anonymous for your kind generosity! I would love a donut pan to make baked donuts or some chalkboard style labels for my home!

Psalm 37:34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it. We have seen God's protection SOOO many times and this verse is what comes to mind. For me, I would LOVE the different baking chips that we can not get here.

Laura Consford said...

Proverbs 3:5-6 have been a blessing to me. When I find myself worrying about something (leaning to my own understanding), I am reminded to trust in the Lord with all of my heart!

VELVEETA!!

Psalm 118:6

Connie Earl Robertson said...

My favorite verses and the ones I run to the most are Philippians 4:4-7. Verse 4 is probably the most special of all.

Matthew 19:26 has been what I have been thinking about and has been a huge encouragement these past few months when things seem impossible.!

Keren said...

Psalm 62:8 "Trust in him at all times; ye people, pour out your heart before him: God is a refuge for us. Selah."

I would love to have some chocolate chips so I could make chocolate chip cookies! :)

Julia said...

1 Thess 5:24...Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.

And I would love peanut M&M's! or just anything chocolate!!

Heidi Seawright said...

Psalm 61:1-3a

Hear my cry, O God; Give heed to my prayer. From the end of the earth I call to you when my heart is faint; Lead me to the rock that is higher than I. For You have been a refuge for me...

Thanks to the anonymous donor! I would love any seasonal coffee creamers or Peanut M&Ms! Yum!
