Dear Family and friends,
Since Thomas is flying to Mexico today, it is time to give instructions on how to write to him while he serves in Mexico. His letters should be sent via pouch mail. The following are the instructions that came in his mission packet:
Pouch Mail Instructions:
To prevent possible fines, only postcards and letters that are single sheet, folded into three-panels, and taped at the top only (no envelopes) may be sent through the pouch.
Packages cannot be sent through pouch mail.
Elder Thomas James Blackham
Mexico Mexico City West Mission
Salt Lake City, UT 84130-0150
If you want to write to Thomas, you will write on one side of sheet of paper, fold that paper into thirds and tape it shut on the top. Then you will address the outside of the sheet of paper, attach the stamp and mail it.
Another option is to write Thomas via www.dearelder.com. On that site you can write letters to him and they take care of the mailing. Dearelder.com provides this service for free, but does ask for donations.
