Pouch Mail Instructions:
(This sounds complicated but this will most likely be the cheapest and fastest way to communicate.)

“Items sent by pouch mail use the United States Postal Service (USPS) from your location to Church headquarters, where they are forwarded to the missionary by a private courier along with other Church mail. Pouch mail leaves Church headquarters each Friday. Items received after the pouch has been sent will be held for the next week. Only postcards or one-page correspondences (no envelopes) written on one side of the page may be sent through the pouch. Notebook or other light-weight paper will not process through the USPS machines. Photographs are not acceptable. Items restricted from the pouch may be sent through the USPS or a private courier. Cash is not accepted for conveyance by any courier. Please consult with the USPS or the courier of your choice to determine allowable items, as they will vary by delivery location. Items not complying with the following instructions will be returned to the sender or discarded, if the complete return address is not included.

Letter folding instructions: 
Lay the letter blank side down.
Fold the bottom of the letter about one-third of the way up the page and crease.
Fold the top of the letter to the bottom of the first fold and crease.
Secure the long side with two pieces of tape about one inch in from each end, but do not seal the ends.
In the top left comer write your name and complete return address.
Affix first class postage in the top right comer.
In the middle write the missionary address as follows:

Just a warning - “Clothing, food products, and merchandise should be sent directly to the mission office address (The one listed above). However, clothing or other dutiable merchandise often does not reach its intended destination or, if it does arrive may be subject to customs duties that the missionary will not be prepared to pay. Small packages of nominal value may be sent through the United States Postal Service. Photographs and tapes may be included in these packages. Merchandise sent through a commercial mail carrier is extremely expensive and may be subject to customs duties, but this is the best way to send credit or debit cards”

Please write me! As excited as I am to serve, I can’t say it’ll be easy to leave home, and every letter will help and be loved to death!
