Mailing Instructions

Hello Everyone,

This is Elder Pincock's mom. Some of you have asked me for  information on sending letters and packages to Caleb.  Here is what I've been instructed.

The fastest way to communicate with Elder Pincock is through email.  However, his time is very limited at the computer so he might not be able to respond to you right away.

You can still send him pouch mail through the Church Mail Services. This takes a while for him to receive it since it first goes to the mission home and then gets delivered to him at a later time.
However, he has reported receiving all the pouch letters that have been sent.
Now, I'm just trying to get him to send some back!... but, ..I guess I got to cut him some slack since he's pretty busy.

(Only postcards and letters that are single sheet, folded into three-pane, and taped at the top only (no envelopes) may be sent through the pouch mail system.

Another pouch mail route is through (select:  write a letter, then select:  Peru, Huancayo   Mission).  They print it out for you and send it for free.

Sending packages is not that easy.  There is a very tedious customs process that can take a very long time to for Caleb to receive packages.  Most of the packages sent has to be claimed by the person at the post office.  So, the fastest and securest way to send something to Elder Pincock, as instructed by the mission home, is to send a large padded envelope instead of a box.  If you put Catholic Stickers on the envelope they put it in a separate bag and they don't mess with it.  I was told it even arrives within 2 to 3 weeks. I am planning on trying this theory out myself. I use the Priority Mail (Federal Express) padded envelopes that you get for free at the Post office.  They have a flat rate of $23.95 dollars for any amount of weight. So I stuff my envelopes to the max.  One more thing, it is important that your claim for the items in your envelope is written as under $100 including the shipping cost.  If it is over $100, they charge him a fee to collect the package. Also, they don't allow any liquids or aerosols.

They ask that you address it to President David Y. Henderson and then Elder Caleb Pincock under it.

Hope this helps.
