Missionary Mail to Brazil; Sites Selling Books

NEW YORK, NEW YORK -- Several of the websites that have shown up as new this week are selling unique LDS books, outside of normal LDS bookstores. These sites are selling original hymnbooks, books of gospel-centered Family Home Evening activites and a local LDS history. In addition, a new mail delivery service speeds up delivery of mail to LDS missionaries in Brazil and a home teaching service tries to help wards and home teachers track what they are doing.

The mail delivery service,, takes letters over the Internet, printing them out and mailing them using domestic, first-class mail to missionaries serving in Brazil, significantly speeding up the delivery in the process by avoiding the international leg of the delivery. Home Teaching Tracker essentially provides the same kind of software available in the home teaching functions in the LDS Church's MIS software, but makes it publicly available on the Internet.
