12 Days of Christmas for Missionary #2

With each present we’ve included
A scripture for the day. We think
we’ve been real clever
So look them up, now don’t delay.

(I rewrote this poem to read something like:

With each present we’ve attached
A scripture as a clue.
So look them up, and try to guess
What’s wrapped inside for you.
We hope you like the things we’ve sent
And think we are real clever.
Because we want to wish for you
The Merriest Christmas ever!

Feel free to use either poem or write your own.

(Note with each gift should include only the scripture reference, not
the scripture, so they have the fun of looking them up and discovering
their connection to the gift. You will need only twelve, but you can
select from the following list . . .)
