Mission Tracker

 
 
 
I bought one of these before our 1st son left on his LDS mission. 
I decided to hang it in the kitchen/mud room hallway where we
could all look at it regularly.  It has been wonderful! 
 
I ordered another one before our 2nd son left on his mission and it's great to be able to see them both together and focus on their service. 
 
I highly recommend this company and their product
It's a great way to have your family, friends, neighbors, etc.
follow your missionary and will also be a wonderful keepsake
for your missionary when they return home.
 
I write on the back of the calendar
the dates they enter the MTC,
enter their mission,
and transfer dates. 
I also include the names of their companions
and any leadership position in which they are serving.
 
It's a great product!

Not only is it the greatest investment if you order a lot
of things off of amazon.com,
but it can save you lots of TIME and MONEY as you send

1.  Plug in your missionary's MISSION OFFICE address
 
2.  Search amazon.com for whatever you would like to send to them.
 
3.  Free 2 Day shipping to the mission office!
 
4.  And...free gift messages!
 
*If you have your missionary's apartment address,
you can send it right to him/her;

Camera Phone Idea ~

 
 
 
 
 
Sorry for the blog neglect!  We've been getting our 2nd missionary ready to leave on his mission this week.  It's been crazy!
 
Anyway, here are some good ideas that can help you with your missionary - all using that little tool that we carry around all the time - our cell phone!
 
USE YOUR CAMERA FEATURE TO REMEMBER EVERYTHING IN A HURRY
 
Take a photo of each of these things:
 
MTC Address
 
Mission Office Address
 
Clothing/Shoe Sizes
 
List From Mission of What To Bring
 
And of course...
photos of your cute missionary getting ready to leave!
 
I also love using the Notes feature.
 
Use the Voice Recorder
 
This is to record your Missionary's farewell address in church.
It can be easily downloaded later to Dropbox and kept for future listening.
And, for those family members and friends who can't be there,
you can send it to them in an attachment.
