We're Moving!!!!!

That's right. We have a new address in the lovely border city of Eagle Pass, Texas:

2149 Del Rio Blvd #102
Eagle Pass, Texas 78852

This new address is where we will now receive all packages headed for Missionaries in Mexico. You may begin using the new address immediately. Starting on Monday January 15th, we will begin making daily trips across the border with your packages. However, each mission will only depart once per week. The departure schedule will be as follows:

Monday: Merida, Oaxaca, Puebla, Tuxtla Gutierrez, Veracruz

Tuesday: All Mexico City Missions and Cuernavaca

Wednesday: Culiacan, Guadalajara North and South, Leon

Thursday: Chihuahua, Hermosillo, Tijuana

Friday: Monterrey East and West, Tampico, Torreon

In order to be included on your departure day, the package must arrive by the end of business on the day before departure. In other words, if your package is going to Puebla, your departure day is Monday. In order to make this shipment, your package must arrive by the end of business on the previous Friday.

We will now also offer Same Day Departure service. For an extra fee, you can request that your package depart for the mission office on the same day it is received at Care Package Express. The cut-off time for this service is 2:00pm. Any packages arriving before 2:00pm that have requested Same Day Departure and paid the corresponding fee will be taken across the border that same day regardless of when the rest of the packages destined to that mission will be shipped. It will ship by itself and will not be cartonized with any other boxes going to that mission.

Please keep in mind that we try very hard to keep our service as reasonably priced as possible and the only way we are able to do this is by cartonizing all packages going to the same mission. This new format will allow us to continue to do that but still offer a reasonably quick departure for each mission. We will also be able to handle much greater volume than ever before without effecting operations.

Please call or e-mail with any questions. Thanks,


Operation: Dear Elder ***Update***
