And so it Begins...

     Well, he's off! Today Carter was set apart as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.Visit here often to get the 411 on what's going on with this crazy kid. Yes, you could email him at, but from personal experience I know that missionaries love and appreciate SO MUCH MORE snail mail letters or even letters sent through Dear Elder. Although doesn't currently deliver to the Mexico City MTC, it is FREE to send letters through the website to his acutal mission. For snail mail while he's in Mexico there are a few options:

(US postage, sent through the Church's pouch delivery, specific rules here)
Elder Carter Riley Wilcox
Mexico MTC
PO Box 30150
Salt Lake City, UT 84130-0150

(International postage, sent through USPS)
Elder Carter Riley Wilcox
Ecuador Guayaquil South Mission
Mexico Missionary Training Center
Carretera Tenayuca-Chalmita #828
Colonia Zona Escolar, Gustavo A. Madero
07230 Mexico, Distrito Federal

     Either address will get letters to him, while the pouch is considered more reliable and cheaper, there is a limit as to how much you can write. When he leaves for Ecuador, his mission address will be added on here as well. Thanks for all your support!
