How to send letters to Elder Smith

Macaulay would love to hear from you. He is good at writing back. Pouch is the way to send.:-)/\:-) high five

Pouch Mail Instructions:
The Church provides pouch mail service to this mission. Items sent by pouch use the USPS from your location to Church headquarters, where they are forwarded to the missionary by a private courier along with other Church mail. Pouch leaves Church headquarters each Friday.
Items received after the pouch has been sent will be held for the next week.

Only postcards or one-page correspondences (no envelopes) written on one side of the page may be sent through the pouch. Notebook or other light-weight paper will not process through the USPS machines. Photographs are not accepted.

Items restricted from the pouch may be sent through the USPS or a private courier.  Items not complying with the following instructions will be returned to the sender or discarded, if the complete return address is not included.

Letter folding instructions:o|:-) catch  
    Lay the letter blank side down. 
    Fold bottom of letter about one third of the way up the page and crease. 
    Fold the top of the letter to the bottom of the first fold and crease.
    Secure the long side with two pieces of tape about one inch from each end, but do NOT seal ends.
