This email is only for information, and is not in any way a request for mail/packages.
I am now in charge of the Mission Mail, so I am the one who receives the packages and letters for missionaries and distributes it. And so now I know exactly the best way to do it. I also have more opportunity to send letters, as I am in charge of the pouch mail system as well.
So everyone knows, this is what you should do:
Address the package and/or letter like this:
Elder Daniel Joseph Wilcken
65 Enterprise Road
If it is a package, make sure on the customs order you declare the contents as any of the following that applies:
• missionary items (socks, ties, etc)
• sweets (candy, snacks, etc)
Claim the value of the package as under $30, and it probably should be.
Please be advised it will cost a lot to actually ship the package and so do it with caution. I am unsure how much it costs because it is different on this side. It will also take a very long time probably for it to actually arrive in Zimbabwe.
Have a wonderful week,
