This copy of the Ensign magazine, the ONLY one in our office, arrived in a shipment of supplies. We leave it out on the desk to share it, and virtually every missionary who walks by gasps and picks it up. "Where did you get this??" Even the Mission President did this. Some of them copy articles to take back to their apts.
We're just suggesting that if you want to send a great holiday surprise, here it is. If you want your missionary to make some cash, send extra copies.
Formerly all missionaries were sent complimentary subscriptions of the Ensign and Church News, but now they get two Liahonas, in English and in the country's language.
