Writing to our missionaries in Primary!

Our ward has a special emphasis on "missionary month" every February. The young men and young women in our ward get to experience a little of what it's like to serve a mission full-time, and to share the good news of the gospel with others.

In Primary, we do some fun things to support the overall theme. We have had missionaries that have returned recently, folks who are serving a mission currently, and folks who joined the church, come and share their experiences.

We wrote the names of all of the missionaries currently serving full-time around the world, and in some cases, pointed to where the missionary is now, on the map. We gave the children stationery so that they could write letters to the missionaries, and put their letters in the envelopes.
