How to Bless a Missionary – Buy A Magazine Subscription for Them (Week #10)

Contact your missionary friend and find out what kinds of magazines they might enjoy reading. Learn about what interests they have. What do they like?

  • Parenting
  • Homeschooling
  • Photography
  • Fishing
  • Hunting
  • Carpentry
  • DIY
  • Travel
  • Aviation
  • Children’s interests

You’ll also need to find out if they prefer to read it electronically or receive the paper version in the mail. You might check if they can even receive paper versions through the mail…. you’ll also have to check with the magazine to see if they ship overseas (it might cost a little more for overseas shipping). You’ll either need an email or a street/PO address. Look up a magazine that matches their interest and order it for them or their children. Missionary kids usually have less access to many English reading materials.

You can do this on any budget! Many magazines are available at steep discounts at different times through the year. If you participate in the Recyclebank recycling program, you can use reward points to order magazines for other people and it won’t cost you anything!

This is a great idea for a gift that is not a one-time thing…they will keep receiving new issues throughout the whole year.  By the way, this is a great gift for anyone!
