Christmas Package Information

We recieved the following instructions for Jacob's Christmas package.  The mission has asked that he only recieve one Christmas package.

If you have any photos or a letter you'd like to include in Jacob's Christmas package please e-mail it to or contact us.  We are planning to send his package out by November 7, 2016.

Dear Parents and Family of Marshall Islands Majuro Missionaries,

Thank you for supporting our missionaries as they serve with us as full-time missionaries in the Marshall Islands Majuro Mission.  It is our desire to help them become the missionaries the Lord needs them to be.  We love and appreciate them and their service.

As we approach the Christmas season we are aware that many of our missionaries will be receiving Christmas packages from home.  That is wonderful; however, we would ask you to be aware of the very modest family circumstances of many of our missionaries.  Being sensitive to those economic disparities, may we ask you to consider your son or daughter’s companion in your gift plans.

There is an additional consideration for your gift giving.  Packages will NOT be forwarded from Marshall Islands to Kiribati.  It would not be appropriate to pay those fees from the sacred tithing money used to administer our missions.  Please use the appropriate address when mailing your package and we ask that you send only ONE Christmas package per missionary.  It creates negative repercussions when a few missionaries receive multiple packages and others receive none.  Furthermore, please limit your box size to no larger than 12”x12”x6” or 30 cm x 30 cm x 15 cm.  Thank you.
For those in the USA mailing to the Marshall Islands, the most effective method for mailing packages is USPS Priority Mail.  The Flat Rate boxes are the most economical.

The address to use if your missionary is serving in the Marshall Islands (Majuro, Ebeye, Jaluit, Lae, or Wotje) is:
Marshall Islands Majuro Mission
PO Box 1107
Majuro, Marshall Islands

Finally, in case you might need a gift idea, here are some things our missionaries have suggested: small flashlights, head lamp and flashing backpack light for nighttime use, Leatherman tool, a waterproof backpack, batteries, shampoo, especially dandruff type (very expensive here), copies of General Conference talks, Christmas stories, and the most popular gift suggestion was letters and pictures from home. 
Thank you in advance for your kindness and cooperation. 

The Marshall Islands Majuro Mission
