Prayers & Packages began in August, 2004, as a Christian ministry in Lahaina, Hawaii. Initially, our goal was to support Hawaii deployed Marines in Iraq and Afghanistan with care packages.
Due to the overwhelming generosity and caring of our local community on Maui, as well as several businesses and individuals stateside, the ministry quickly grew and we began to support all branches of the military. As a result, we have sent thousands of care packages to our troops! In addition, we have had opportunities to help other like-minded ministries start-up on Maui.
Today, we are honored and excited to continue to “adopt” individuals and/or platoons from all branches of the military during their deployments all around the world, by sending them care packages and holding them up in prayer. We also work closely with Chaplains deployed with our troops to ensure that additional care packages are distributed to those with the greatest need.
If you would like to have us send a care package to someone you know, please send their name, rank, and FPO/AP address to us, along with your contact information.
Thank you for your consideration of support to “Prayers & Packages”, which allows us to continue this ministry all year long – we look forward to hearing from you!
