Our missionary son just came upon his halfway mark of his 2 year mission. IT is kind of tradition that families send letters of congrats and celebration for making it through the toughest part of the mission. After serving a year, they are now on the downhill side the mission-making it over the hump.
So, I went on a search for great ideas for Hump Day, this is what I found.
Great Ideas for Hump Day Gifts: Hope you will check out these wonderful sites. They have much more fun info in addition to what I have posted here.
Also, at the end of this post, I have posted photos of what we sent, and some of photos of people holding posters in celebration of his hump day. Kind of Fun!
Also, one time I sent an elder a whole box of really ugly ties from DI for his district to wear. They thought it was hilarious!”

Our Package from Home:
We sent his favorite treats, peanut butter, and a few items that he had requested, like shoe insoles, new shoe polish and applicators. I also found some clearance florescent t-shirts that said, “I did it!”, and “scores under pressure”.
This is a photo of our missionary waring one of the shirts that we sent. This was a happy day for him to get to hump day. He has been on fire with the missionary work since his year mark. Time is flying so fast, his 2 years will be up soon
We also took many photos of family and friends holding posters of celebration. I will include a few more of these photos, as they are fun.
I have had so many requests for these posters, that I have finally created a link for a free printable of these posters:
