Mailing Instructions

For all letters & packages using international postage:
Letters can be sent in envelopes using appropriate international postage. Packages should be kept small, clearly marked "Missionary Supplies" and be valued less than R300 [$40] to avoid high customs, which will be paid by the missionary. One of the less expensive ways to send a package is by the US Postal Service using their Priority Mail International Flat Rate envelopes. The cardboard envelope can be sent for about $13 for up to 4 lbs. Be sure to tape the envelope well with packing tape. A Priority Mail International Flat Rate box may also be sent for about $38 for up to 20 pounds.
