FedEx or DHL Missionary Rate (Reunion Island)

Original message posted by KROEZE on 04-04-06.

Greetings.... Serving on Reunion Island in the Indian Ocean an island over from Madagascar, unfortunately the United States Postal Service does not provide good service here. Almost all our "air mail" packages have taken two or more months or get lost. Very strange because from other countries, there has been no problem. A friend mentioned that "he thought" DHL or FedEx provided a reduced shipping or flat shipping rate for missionaries. Any one aware of this? Any advice? We are aware that DHL, FedEx, ChronoPost and UPS ship to this part of the world. Thanks for the feedback.

I am the director of a company called xsbaggage. We coordinate the shipping of excess baggage, unaccompanied baggage, personal effects, supplies, equipment, you name it and we can ship it! I spent many years in missions work towards university students, both in the US and abroad, so have a keen interest in working with missionary organizations to coordinate the shipments for their goods, and supplies. checkout our website at We offer several types of services, so we might be able to help you. Contact us if you would be interested in discussing our services!

Dear Sir/Madam, Am a Kenyan born again and my dream is to be a Revered to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ. Am a second year student in a Theology college here in Kenya as a private student for 4 year course duration. Iíve got a chance to go spreading the gospel in African continent countries Mozambique and South Africa again as a private candidate. Am not employed and apart from being a theological student am peasant farmer. Am kindly asking whether you can help me get a scholarship to pay for my said mission trip or any other way you can assist. Incase of any clarification please donít hesitate to get back to me. Thanking you for your concern. God bless you. Yours sincerely, John Kinyanjui Gaitho
