Across the road from the CTM is a cookie store called 'Mr Cheney's'. The make cookies, milkshakes, brownies - all things good!
Mr Cheney's have a fabulous little system where parents or friends of missionaries can order these yummies online for their missionary. They then send the missionary a note to CTM telling them that they have something to pick up...how cool is that! They are pretty expensive but still pretty cool. They also run under the name of Missionary ties that provide email services for missionaries. They also offer one free cookie to 'new missionaries'...this free cookie comes with a photo home and a free message sent from your missionary. Here is my message...
