How to Send Mail to Elder Twede

Pouch Mail for the U.S.:
The Church provides pouch mail service to countries where other mail service may not be reliable. Each country regulates this service differently, and the Church must comply with these regulations in order to avoid fines and cessation of the pouch service. If you are not in the U.S., you may check with Church Headquarters and find out if the POUCH is available in your country.    
Only the following items may be sent through the pouch
·    Post Cards
·    Letters that are single sheet, folded into three panels, and taped at the top.
Note: Letters sent in any other manner will be returned to the sender. 
Address for the letter to your missionary and attach a standard US postage stamp:
                          GHANA KUMASI MISSION
Elder/Sister (Missionary’s Name)
P.O. BOX 30150
SALT LAKE CITY UT 84130-0150         
      Include your return address in the upper left corner of the envelope.

Regular Mail:
Letters and packages can be sent to the missionary through the Postal Service using the following address: 
             Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
Elder/Sister  (Missionary’s Name)
P.O. Box PMB KS 16333
Kumasi, GHANA

Please, when mailing items, use the medium USPS FLAT RATE or PADDED/BUBBLE ENVELOPES.  They mail for $23.95 from the USA and usually get through with NO DUTY. It would be a good idea to reinforce the envelopes with lots of clear tape as they usually arrive torn. Other countries, other than the U.S. should find something similar to the U.S. flat rate envelope such as the medium padded or bubble envelopes to mail goods in
We are unable to pick up boxes from the post office here in Kumasi – NO BOXES.  Too much duty is charged which is passed on to the missionary, and the postal service here goes through them and removes items at will.
