Video: Traveling bible for cancer patient lost in Austin post office

AUSTIN — A bible signed by a group of friends from all over the country as a gift for a woman diagnosed with cancer was lost in the Austin U.S. Postal Service Processing Center.

In early June, it arrived in Buda, Texas for Holly Mommaerts to sign.

“It was wrapped in bubble wrap and then inside the bubble wrap was a Ziploc bag. And inside the Ziploc bag was the bible, bible markers and some pens,” said Mommaerts.

She put in her own message for her friend.

Mommaerts then wrapped the bible back up, the same way she received it and put it in a white envelope. She took it to the post office in Buda and shipped it priority. It was supposed to arrive in San Antonio two days later on June 10. The envelope made it, but not the bible.

    People send heavy books in paper envelopes (that can tear wide open) and can’t figure out why the envelope was delivered empty……………………………….. BUT its the Post Office’s fault……….again.

    The window clerk could have recommended a tyvek envelope or a box since it was going priority anyway. That’s what we do, never recommend paper!
