Packaging up our love and support this Christmas

Christmas is just around the corner! Now is the time to start thinking about your parcels destined for overseas. So here we are with a little bit of encouragement – introducing #missionmindedparcels!

// What is it?
A project aimed at blessing a cross-cultural worker this Christmas by posting them a parcel full of love from Down Under!
// Who is it for?
If you live in Australia and know somebody serving the Lord overseas in some capacity – and you want to practically support them during what can often be a super difficult time to be away from home – then #missionmindedparcels is for you.
// How does it work?
The first step is to decide who you would like to bless. They could be a single worker or a family or some MKs. They don’t have to be serving with Pioneers, either! As long as they (or their parents) are serving the Lord in a cross-cultural context, it’s them we want to love on.
Once you’ve decided, the fun begins! This is where you have free reign – be as creative as you want. You can make things, buy things or even collect things to put in the parcel. Hint: think Australian-themed – green and gold, Vegemite, Tim Tams, Aussie flag tea towels, thongs, postcards, Milo... the possibilities are endless! 

Here's the important part:

Before you post your parcel, take a photo of it and upload it to Instagram* (be sure to use the hashtags #missionmindedparcels and #pioneersau). Make sure you upload photos of your parcels because it'll be great to collect all our photos in one place for everyone to browse through them easily.

// How long do I have?

Technically there's no deadline (who doesn't love mail ANY time of year?!), but if you want your parcel to arrive before Christmas make sure you allow a few weeks for it to get there in time.

// Where can I find inspiration?

We've started pinning to a board here that's bursting with ideas for gift-giving/wrapping, so keep coming back to check it out.
Happy giving and parceling, everyone! Don't forget to share this with your friends!
*No Instagram account? No problem! Use the same hashtags on Facebook – or if you’re still feeling left out, email a pic to rkiujian AT pioz DOT net, because we’d love to see what you put together!
