Care Packages - A true Story
Many years ago, our church sent a monthly support offering to Margaret
Carlow, a single lady missionary, who was serving in Korea.
About that time there was made available to the American
public, “Care Packages” with assorted food items that could be donated, and
The packages were made up of selected military surplus food
sent by air, from our country to those in other lands.After World War II many were starving in Europe and this was a cooperative effort to meet a need.
You could choose the address for the box to be sent, so our
church women’s ministry group had a good idea.
To me the $10 donation seemed to be an excellent value for
food and shipping, plus it would bless our missionary.Thinking along these lines, I ordered a gift
parcel, and paid the amount required and placed her address on the order.
Next I wrote an E-Airmail letter to our missionary to alert
her to expect the gift. (No internet then)
At that time a quick way to communicate over-seas was by E-letter.It was a one piece blue paper that included
postage, and when your letter was written, you folded, sealed and mailed it.
Several weeks later, we received a thank you from our
missionary and an explanation.
Apparently for personal reasons, she felt guilty in
accepting the food package for herself.Perhaps she felt unworthy, and thought the food should go to someone who
was more in need than herself.
She told us of a Korean Pastor with a large family who were
suffering lack, and she had been able to bless this family with the parcel.
Perhaps this was God’s way to supply a need for the native
pastor’s family, and we did not question her motive, although at first we did
After giving it much thought we realized this was the best
way to go.Also it allowed our
missionary the opportunity to share with another minister, which she was not
able to do except for our care package.God works in mysterious ways.
