Sister Fristrup
The Oak Lane Ward Relief Society decided to send our Eleven Ward Missionaries a box around Easter Time – so this is their version of the original Feed My Sheep Box!  It turned out so darling and is completely different from the original Missionary Box Mom box we sent.  It was a blast to see what they all came up with!!!  This box can be sent any time of year but some of the sheep items are more easily found around Easter time.  If you plan to send it later in the year – just purchase your sheep things in advance and save them. Or better yet, buy them right after Easter when everything goes on clearance! 

Sheep Flap!!!  Not too big, not too small, but this box was just right!  We mailed a 12X12X5.5 Priority box that we picked up free at the U.S. Post Office 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.

 For the ‘Feed my Sheep’ box I used 1 piece of Aqua Blue Scrapbook Paper and 1 piece of Bright Yellow Scrapbook Paper – both cut in half then trimmed to fit the box.  I then printed off the box flaps on photo paper, cut them out and attached with glue dots.   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!!!

Sheep Mail!!!  We didn’t want to be Sheepish so we included letters from both the Youth and Adults of the Ward!

Below are what our darling Relief Society Sisters came up with!!!
Ewe will just love them! 

Quite a few ladies brought small food items or candy so our cute Relief Society President Brenda put together a ‘Feed Bag’ so that we could put all of the items inside!  So much Fun!

You are serving your mission and represent all of us at home who love you and pray for your success.  You are in our heart.  The stone represents a piece of our heart.  Carry it and always remember we are with you and love you.

Just wanted to let you know that your ‘Peeps’ back at home appreciate your missionary service.  Keep feeding ‘His’ sheep knowing your ‘Peeps’ are with you in spirit.  We love you!

Helping Others: “When ye are in the service of your fellow beings ye are only in the service of your God.” Mosiah 2:17
We can all Help!  Calling yourself a Christian brings with it the duty and the privilege of a lifetime of service.  Jesus Christ said, “Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends” (John 15:13).  This doesn’t mean we have to die to show our love for our friends.  We lay down our lives every time we put someone else’s needs before our own. (And the ‘Friends’ mentioned in the scripture above can be understood to be everyone we meet, since Jesus also commanded us to ‘Love One Another’.  We lay down our lives through service.  Church members have many opportunities to serve.  We can do small acts of kindness for our neighbors, take part in community service, fulfill responsibilities within our local congregations or contribute to the Church’s large-scale humanitarian efforts.  These actions, whether great or small, let us feel the happiness of connecting with our brothers and sisters and remind us that God often allows us to be the answer to someone else's prayers.

(Small LED Metal Flashlight w/Batteries)

‘EWE’ are the light of the world.  A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.  Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father, which is in heaven.  Matthew 5:14-16

Remove the clips from your sheep;
And then buy yourself a treat!
