Several people have asked us if we can get mail and the answer is yes! Our address is below and it will be the same address even when we’re in a tribe because the mail will be forwarded to us there. I will keep this list updated with current requests.
New Tribes Mission
PO Box 1079
Goroka, EHP 441
Papua New Guinea
And yes, we can also receive packages! They take about 3-6 weeks to get there (even though the post office says 7-10 days). The best way to send a smaller package is with one of the USPS flat rate international boxes because it is a flat rate no matter the weight. The flat rate boxes come in small, medium, and large; however, even the “large” isn’t very big. Please write ‘for missionary use only’ on the package. Please double bag everything in gallon zip ziplock bags.
Here are a few things that we always like in packages and can’t ever get too much:
Jinny: pepperoni (please wrap it or hide it in package), dried tortellini, ghiradelli 60% cacao chocolate chips, velveeta, rotel, penzey’s seasonings (ask us!), torani dark chocolate sauce and caramel sauce for coffee, tortilla chips (even if they get crushed, it’s ok!) seasonal hand soaps/candles or Christmas ornaments, gourmet hot chocolates, cascadian farm oats and honey granola, dry soup mixes especially tortilla soup, baking mixes of any kind!
