Initial Message from President Berrett upon Arriving in Bangalore, India, July 7 2014

Dear Brother and Sister Wakefield,

We are grateful for the safe arrival of you son in the India Bangalore Mission.  He arrived safe and in good spirits.  We have great need for him as a missionary. We felt the strength of his testimony as he shared with us his feelings for missionary work.

Your son has been assigned to work in the city of Chennai serving with Elder Dondapati from India. Elder Dondapati is a great missionary.  We are confident that they will be able to help and support each other in the work of saving souls.

Many parents have asked about sending packages to their missionaries. Postage is expensive for those sending from outside the country and  customs charges are sometimes assessed. We suggest that for birthdays and holidays you put cash in their personal account.  If you send a package, we recommend all packages be sent to the Mission Office.  THE FIRST LINE OF THE ADDRESS SHOULD READ “Indian Society of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints,” and the missionaries name should be written elsewhere on the package.  Please keep in mind that most of our transfers are done by air travel. The local airlines have a 15 kg (about 33 lbs.) weight limit.  Missionaries struggle to keep within that limit so they transfer very light and discard items not necessary.
The Mission Office address has recently changed.  The new address is as follows:
India Bangalore Mission
No. - 2, Rear Building
Garudarcharpalya, Mahadevapura Post,
Opp. ABB Tech Park 
Whitefield Road, Karnataka
Bangalore 560048
