Germany Berlin Mission
September 3, 2014
Dear Parents of Elder
Thank you for the marvelous support and love you are giving
your missionary. We know he looks forward to an e-mail or letter each week from
you and an occasional package.
Christmas will be here before we know it!
We are planning to hold our Christmas Zone Meetings December 9-13th this year.
These are the dates we will distribute Christmas packages from home. If you are
planning to send a Christmas package to your missionary, please send it so that
it arrives NO LATER than Monday, December 1st. Please label it so we know it is
for Christmas! Please inform us of your intentions concerning a Christmas
Package…will you or will you not send one. You can respond in a quick email to
the mission office email address: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We do not
recommend sending packages to the missionary’s apartment. Please send all
packages to the mission office (allow 4-6 weeks for delivery). All packages
should be sent no later than October 15th. The mission office address
Kirche Jesu Christi HLTMissionary NameZerbster Strasse 4212209 Berlin
Smaller and lighter packages arrive much more quickly to Germany.
To avoid long delays and excessive custom fees, for which your missionary is
responsible, we recommend you keep the value of the package under $50.00 and
complete the Customs Declaration Value Form with the correct value. Thank you
for helping us in this manner.
We want to wish you a joyous Christmas
season and celebrate with you the blessing of having your son or daughter serve
the Lord on a mission at this special time of year.

account as a special Christmas gift. Also, shirts, socks, ties (blouses,
stockings, scarves) would be welcomed gift items. Please do not send i-phones or
other electronic devices as a gift. The only electronic device allowed is a

Thank you for helping us maintain the high standards that are set
