Dear Family and Friends of our Missionaries,
We want to pass along some important information and tips that will assist you in getting mail and packages to your missionary.
Letters and packages sent through the Postal Services that are four (4) pounds and under are forwarded immediately to your missionary.
Things that cause delay to your packages:
· Overnight packages
· Certified or Registered mail
· Using any carrier other than the Post Office
We suggest the following for your packages to arrive in a timely manner:
· Send your packages through the Post Office
· Don’t put more than four (4) pounds in a package, send more packages if required
· Plan ahead to meet your deadlines
Packages heavier than 4 pounds may be sent directly to the missionaries’ apartment. However, if your missionary is transferred and your package arrives, it will be the responsibility of your missionary to pay to have the package sent to their new area. Please keep in mind transfers do not always happen at regularly scheduled times. If you send a package, be sure to write the address exactly as it is given to you by your missionary. In Sweden there are names on the doors that are required to be part of the address in order for the mail to be delivered, otherwise it will be returned.
The tithing funds can not be used to forward packages to missionaries. If a package arrives in the office that is over four (4) pounds or if it is sent by a carrier other than the Post Office, we will inform the missionary and ask if he/she wants us to charge their personal account for the cost to forward it to them, or if they are willing to wait until someone will be visiting that area, which may take up to a month. .
Please remember that ALL medication sent need to be listed as Missionary Supplies on the customs declaration (green) form. Be sure you tape all boxes well, especially corners. We have received several packages where the corners have been torn and contents have been lost.
Be sure to use this address when sending mail and packages to your missionary through the mission office
