About us

Our Story

Our Founder Pablo started the business 5 years ago in Argentina as a small online business store for missionaries. Determined to use the funds of the business to finance his education in the United States, he grew the business in Argentina until he was able to afford his education.

Upon arrival in the US he expanded the business offering a new service: Courier international shipping. Missionary Packages Argentina became the most used service for Missionaries in Argentina and a means to be able to achieve a dream for Pablo. The model worked so good that Pablo decided to open the business in Brazil. With the help of friends and people in Brazil, the business launched successfully making it the best courier service to ship to Brazil.

Today Missionary Packages Plus is building on the foundation of previous businesses to provide mothers and families a cheaper, better and easier experience to ship packages all around the world.
