This is the contact that was sent out about a month ago. I just sent something down with her last week. I will not know when my daughter gets it for a while since she delivers to the Mission Home and usually Missionaries get all their mail during transfers which might be as long as 6 weeks. I think she charges $5 per pound and $7 to deliver to Mission Homes. She also asks to have the package in a large 2 gallon Zip Lock bag and then shipped to her in a box but she will deliver the bag and carry it by bag. I know there were other mothers who used her exclusively during their son's mission so I am expecting she has a good track record.
Her name is Vanessa Contreras
1604 South Prospect Street

Phone is 801-548-0561
I sent a package last Friday and she charged $5 per pound and a $6 delivery charge. She is darling and very helpful. She told me that my package would be delivered to the MTC on Wednesday. I also asked her if my son could use her service to send things home. She said yes, that a lot of missionaries used her service. She told me to have my son pack up his things, put the mailing address on the package (I would also tell them to attach a list of what is included in the box as they have to put it on the shipping manifest) and take them to the mission home. Then they need to call her father, Pedro Contreras Cruz, and he would pick it up from the Mission home. She said that the mission homes were very familiar with her father. He doesn't speak English so the missionary needs to be able to communicate or ask someone in the mission home to call him. The contact information in Lima that was on the bottom of my Invoice is as follows:
Mz. M Lote. 3 Urb. San Carlos -Santa Anita
She told me that her father would pick up the package and ship it to Vanessa and then she would weigh it here and then I would pay for the shipping costs. That way our missionaries don't have to pay on their end. I thought this was great. That way all the costs are paid for by the parents. So if your missionaries have purchased gifts or items they want to take home, they can ship them and not have to pack them around with them. Hope this helps some of you.
