Consider this when mailing

When sending boxes (the flat rate shipping boxes from the post office are usually the most efficient and economical) you will need to fill out a customs declaration form. Please keep the values minimal and the descriptions of items generic. Instead of putting “Music CD’s” write “Audio”. Instead of putting “Chocolate Chips” write “Confections”. Once it reaches PNG the post office employees like to take things of interest out of the boxes. A higher valued item or one that is a description they recognize and desire are sometimes taken. The more mundane and vague the description, the more likely we are to receive it. Also, with higher values written down the post office may decide to charge us duty to receive the package. Since the problems usually arise after leaving the US, insurance and a higher declared value do absolutely nothing for missing items. The post office doesn’t insure it in PNG. Just a few helpful tidbits to make it a little easier all the way around!

When sending items, pray that it will get to us. Thank you so much for your thoughtfulness and caring!
