What is the pouch mail program?

The Church has established the Pouch mail program to help families and friends communicate better with their missionaries in countries with poor mail systems. When you mail your letters to the Pouch Mail Department in Salt Lake City, the Church places all the letters bound for one mission in a big package and ships them to the mission through an express carrier service.  When the letters arrive at the mission office in the destination country, the office Elders open the package of letters and distribute them to the Elders and Sisters throughout the mission.

How does work with the pouch mail department to get letters to Elder Jenson?

The Pouch Department only sends one package per week to each mission. The deadline on the website to submit a pouch letter is 12 midnight (MST) on Sundays, which is technically 12am on Monday morning. They print, process and deliver your letters to the Pouch Mail center in Salt Lake by 9am on Monday. The letters are sorted by mission and mailed out on Tuesdays to Elder Jenson.
