Mail and Packages

Contacting Wes
If you would like to contact Wes you have multiple options:
1. E-Mail (Fastest)
2. Pouch Mail (Fast)
3. Physical letter/Package (Slow)


Wesley may have limited access to a computer, and will only send and receive emails once a week (normally on Mondays).  He might not have time to respond to every email, especially considering that he is under strict instructions to make sure his Mom gets a message every week!

Wesley's updates to his family will be shared on this blog.  Check back often!  To get update notifications, follow

Pouch Mail
The Church provides pouch mail service to Wesley's Mission. Items sent by pouch mail use (USPS) from your location to Church headquarters, where they are forwarded to the missionary by a private courier along with other Church mail. Pouch mail leaves Church headquarters each Friday. Items received after the pouch has been sent will be held for the next week. Only postcards or one-page correspondences (No Envelopes) written on one side of the page may be sent through the pouch. Notebook or other light-wight paper will not process through the USPS machines. Photographs are not acceptable.

Letter Folding Instructions:
Lay the letter blank side down. Fold the bottom of the letter about one-third of the way up the page and crease. Fold the top of the letter to the bottom of the first fold and crease. Secure the long side with two pieces of tape about one inch in from each end, but do not seal the ends. In the top left corner write your name and complete return address. Affix first class postage in the top right corner. In the middle write the missionary address as follows:

Elder John Wesley Wilcox
Perú Lima East Mission
POB 30150
Salt Lake City UT 84130-0150

Physical Mail
Be forewarned: letters via USPS can take a while to arrive, and packages can take months, even when using private carriers (DHL, FedEx, and UPS).  Private carriers will need the mission office telephone number (listed below).
