Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't updated in a while! The snowfall has slowed everything down over there, including the mail and any good updates. Mail is starting to trickle back in, but it was backed up for a while! Thank you to everyone still sending goodies and everyone getting packages ready to send! And thank you so much for the continued prayers. Daniel has been on Towers and should be taking over Patrol the next time around, so keep praying for them as fervently as you have been!
Daniel is getting a little bit of cabin fever with the snow keeping them in the COP for the past few weeks. You know Daniel…inactivity does not suit him!
As for his care package requests – NO MORE TOILETRIES! They are “covered” for an ETERNITY due to your generosity, so thank you so much! He is asking for more food, snacks, coconut water (contains electrolytes for rehydration), and supplements from https://www.advocare.com/130212671/. The altitude calls for lots of hydration, and AdvoCare offers a lot of products that can help with that.
Food items: anything microwaveable (quinoa mixes, soups, etc.), canned tuna or chicken, beef jerky, summer sausage, whole grain products, Peanut Butter, COFFEE (they have a grinder, so whole bean is great)! Daniel loves any bold blend, especially from Starbucks, (TJ Maxx often has whole bean Starbucks coffee on sale). A lot of these items, especially if you want to send in bulk, can be found on Amazon.com, and most will be shipped for free. I use Amazon for tuna, coconut water, and jerky because it ends up being cheaper and easier. The guys also like movies, so if there are any funny classics you want to send, please do! They will be most appreciated!
On a side note, thank you for the letters and emails! They mean so much to both of us.
Let me know if you have any questions about anything!
