A message from the Mission Pres about Christmas packages
ATTENTION mark these packages as Christmas
Our policy is to deliver all mail to the missionaries as soon as possible. If you don’t want your missionary to open the package, please put Christmas – open on 25 December - on each package. Our goal is to get all of the missionaries. We will not necessarily wait until the Christmas Parties to deliver them.
All Christmas mail and packages need to be received at the Mission office by 12 Dec 2014. Mail all Christmas packages to the Office because of the 3 Dec 2014 transfer. You will not have time to send mail after the transfer and get it to the missionaries flat by Christmas unless you live close. If we do not receive the packages in time for the parties, we will do our best to get them to the missionaries before Christmas.
Mission office address: England Leeds Mission
Lister House, Lister Hill,

1. Send all Christmas packages and letters directly to the office.
2. Parents need to mark packages as “personal items NOT FOR RESALE” – “Gift” – “Christmas gift” - Declare the value of $20 or £20 OR less (NOT MORE). Because it is a gift you don’t need to put a declared value on it. England can charge a tax on anything that is a declared valued of more than $20. We have had missionaries pay up to £70 to receive a package.
