Care Packages and Mail
Who doesn’t love snail mail? I would love to hear from you! It is fairly easy to send a letter or package while I am serving in South Sudan. Cards or postcards are usually about $1 extra than mailing in the United States.

Care Package Tips

  • Send via USPS flat rate shipping boxes. (This is the cheapest and fastest way for packages to arrive!)
  • Place garage sale prices for all items on the customs form (The entire package worth should not state more than $10.)
  • Wrap the entire box in tape (not just the seams so the package arrives intact).
  • Do not mail medications, cash, or electronics.

Need Ideas of What to Send?

  • Chocolate Chips
  • Beef Jerky
  • Reese’s anything
  • iTunes and Amazon gift cards sent via email for Kindle book downloads
  • Freeze Dried Fruit and Vegetables (Only fruits and vegetables are what we can ship in from Kenya.)
  • Handwritten Letters
  • Trail Mix
  • Christmas cards, birth announcements, wedding announcements, pictures of you and your family
  • Any books that you have read and are done with
