Attach the label to the top of the box and don’t forget to include a note or picture of your family as well. Return the boxes   to the breezeway along with the $10 for shipping plus $6 for the discipleship class. You may also use your phone to go to the QR shown on the box label to  pay and to track your boxes to see which country they are sent to. The boxes are due by November 5th.
