Dear Elder’s Services

Dear Elder is a service that can send David letters free of charge. To do so, follow these instructions.

  1. Go to Dear Elder’s Website
  2. In the sidebar, locate the “Send Stuff” section and click on “Pouch”
  3. In the Drop Down Menu, locate the “Peru Huancayo” Mission (press the “p” key on your keyboard to speed the selection) and click “Write a Missionary”
  4. Enter your return address information, as well as Elder David Van Komen in the correct fields

Letters are printed and delivered to the mission office weekly. Cut off is Sunday night at midnight and the letters are printed and delivered to the Church Office Building on Thursday.  Letters are generally in Peru by the next week, but have to be hand-delivered to missionaries away from the mission office.  It may take up to three weeks for Elder Van Komen to receive your letter.
