FYI: The following message was received from Praveena Balasundaram, Director of Program Resources, Communications, United Methodist Women
"While we are all encouraged to pray for our missionaries, I would suggest you email the missionary first before sending out a mail; during this time, we have heard that some countries are not accepting mail from the US."
