You can email Michael at the following:

His address while at the MTC is (August 6th until approx Sept 19, 2014):

Elder Michael Jeffrey Rasmussen
2007 N 900 E Unit  85
Provo UT 84602

While he is in the MTC sending letters to him through is the easiest. It's free and they are delivered everyday so he can read them each night.

and his address once he is in the Philippines:

Elder Michael Jeffrey Rasmussen
Philippines Iloilo Mission
Osmena St

Sending packages to the Philippines is super easy thanks to a wonderful Missionary Mom who runs a Facebook page called "Philippines Missionary Packages". It costs $12.50 to send one USPS large flat rate box through her service (in addition to what it costs you to send the box to her in the Portland, Oregon area). But still, super cheap compared to what it costs to send it through regular mail. I'm told it takes about 2 months to get a package to Iloilo. You can get full instructions at the Facebook page, or contact Michelle (Michael's Mom) at for more info.

I (Michelle) will be sending Michael's Christmas box in Mid-September in order for it to reach Michael in Iloilo in time for Christmas. If you have something you want to include you can get it to me and I'll pack in in the 2 boxes I have reserved for the Mid-September shipment.

In addition, I am helping to gather Christmas items to send boxes for other missionaries in the Philippines, Iloilo Mission who do not get packages from home. If you would like to participate please let me know! I'll have a list of ideas of things to send them shortly!
