Here are some suggestions if you want to send a care package to us here in Nigeria. You can also email us for more ideas and/or information, since we often have other items and/or ministries we are thinking about. The US Postal Service offers flat-rate international boxes, which *usually* manage to arrive in approximately three weeks (the largest flat rate box costs approximately $50 for shipping). Our mail comes to the Hillcrest School post office box and when something arrives for us we go downtown to the post office to pick it up. Thanks!


  • Family-friendly movies


  • Regular & Decaf Coffee Beans (whole bean dark roast for espresso)
  • Chocolate-covered espresso beans (yum!
  • Peanut M&Ms (survive shipping well)
  • Pepperoni
  • #2 pencils
  • Gatorade Mix
  • Granola, Clif, protein, or energy bars
  • Fruit snacks (preferably 100% fruit ones)
  • Turkey/Beef Jerky

Mom and I are sitting here at Evangel using the Multilinks network to access your blog! Mom’s waiting to have the surgeon take a spot off of her face. She says that’s one way to lose weight!
Glad you were able to keep the bushfire from taking over the compound! What an experience.
We also had an interesting Christmas. On the 24th Briska got hit by a truck while she was crossing the road to buy a 100 naira bag. Her arm is broken very close to the shoulder and we’re trying to get her help from a specialist who can put screws in, etc. But the specialist at Evangel is gone till Feb. Pray! We don’t want her to lose her arm! Anyway, she’s been staying in our guestroom and so I’ve been running a little hospital.

Love to you all!! Lisa, Steve, Erling & Genny – p.s. thanks so much for the blog update reminder – it helps me tremendously!! 🙂

We try to keep it updated, but it’s also a good idea to check directly with us just to make sure it’s current.

How often is this updated? Is this a current Wishlist?

This is a great way to keep in touch with your family’s mission, you all look wonderful and it’s so nice to see the smiles on your faces!

God Bless!
