Important Info for Sending Packages and Message from Mission President

Dear Eveson Family,

Please find attached a photo of your Elder with Sister Zackrison and me at the Mission Home in Durban. We want to assure you that Elder Eveson is safe in his first area and appears to be adjusting well.  We are confident that he will be a great asset to the mission and would encourage you to write to him weekly to keep him encouraged and strong.

Just a reminder that all letters and packages can be sent to:

Elder Brandon Eveson
Church of Jesus Christ of LDS
P.O. Box 1741
Wandsbeck 3631
--South Africa--

Address for FedEx packages:

Elder Brandon Eveson
Church of Jesus Christ of LDS
2 Derby Place, Suite 4
Derby Downs Office Park
Westville 3630
-- South Africa --
If you are sending a package to your missionary, please mark the contents “missionary supplies”.  Do NOT list all the goods contained therein.  Just a headline stating "Missionary Supplies" without an estimated value. When you list all of the goods contained therein, the consequences are large duties and taxes charged to your missionary which he must then pay when he receives it. 

[Editor's Note - Missionary supplies fall under a separate tax and if listed as such, the Missionary does not have to pay the high customs taxes on each individual item -- as long as it has been properly labeled.  It also helps to take products out of packaging to avoid the "new" or packaged look.  Putting a note inside that says "Missionary Supplies" also seems to be helpful.  Thanks to Jan White for his input on this also.]

Thank you for lending this young man to the service of the Lord. May you and your family be blessed for his labor.

President Zackrison
South Durban Mission
