My Missionary Shipping

The Most Complete - Fast - Missionary Shipping Services Worldwide.

Who We Are.

  Founder/Owner: TODD HEBDON

I am simply a guy who served an LDS mission in Hong Kong from 1989 to 1991 and found out first hand the struggles of shipping packages to missionaries overseas. I heard from my own parents expressing their frustration at the whole process of going to the post office, paying a bunch of money, and hoping that I would receive their package within the next two months! Sometimes it never arrived! No-one from the post office had any idea where the package might be, and a quick, easy answer would usually be, “It’s most likely stuck in customs”. All that time and money and care would go down the drain!! There simply had to be an easier way to ship quickly, be able to trace packages and not break the bank!  At that time there wasn't and little did I know then, that I would actually end up going into the shipping industry.

This website is a culmination of over 18 years experience in the International and Domestic Shipping Industry as of 2013. In looking at the success of many wholesale-to-the-public companies (such as Sams Club) I decided that perhaps shipping parcels could be done with the same concept: putting together a large buying group (missionary parents, relatives, and friends) as a single buying entity, allowing this entity to negotiate a very large shipping discount that can be accessed by a single portal (website) and a vehicle to do so (My Missionary Shipping). Membership into our group is free, however, I do accept additional donations through my PayPal account of $10 or more to help me keep the lights on, the phones plugged in and the website up. The member registration link is at the top and bottom of every page and says "Sign in or Register."  The donations link is to the left at the bottom of the page. I don't make a lot of money from each package I send. I do provide this service more out of a labor of love.  I want to  help out all the fellow International Missionaries and loved ones that find themselves so far from home and would love to receive a great care package with a little piece of home inside. This is the idea behind My Missionary Shipping, LLC.

Through a unique association with an authorized re-seller, we have been able to team up with DHL™, the #1 Express Shipping Company in the world!

Most people don't know that the USPS merely contracts with the lowest bidding contractor when dealing with the shipping of International Packages. Because of this, you do NOT have the ability to track or trace it using their standard service, let alone know when it will eventually get to its destination... We would like for you to use our discount shipping power with DHL™ and let us help you take advantage of not only the deeply discounted rates but the speed of DHL TM. One of the main reasons for their speed is the fact that they have over 177,000 in-house Customs Brokers. They actually clear customs while in the air.

It is my hope that you will have an easy and enjoyable experience in shipping your next care package to your missionary or loved one internationally. Please tell me how I'm doing! I welcome comments and suggestions and even a recommendation from you to others!  Feel free to go to the "Testimonials" tab and add your comments and experience with My Missionary Shipping.

My Missionary Shipping's Role, and your relationship with MMS

My Missionary Shipping is not a carrier.  We've partnered exclusively with DHL who is our carrier.  MMS is merely a broker providing access to DHL's world wide services and capabilities at drastically reduced rates only available to our members.  When you become a member and ship your package with DHL  you, in actuality are becoming an "Agent" of My Missionary Shipping. You also agree to follow up with your package through the tracking tools provided and any additional requests from customs officials if the need arises.  Any questions about what is happening with your packages status listed on the tracking info can be fielded by DHL directly by calling their customer service phone number at

(800) CALL-DHL and asking to speak to a representative.  We at My Missionary Shipping will be happy to help with this process and answer your questions; if we have the time and are available to do so.
