Rebecca is going to...

The Texas Fort Worth mission, Spanish speaking! We are all very excited for her. She enters the MTC in April.

Dear Elder

I've been thinking a lot about the missionaries lately. My sister Rebecca is hopefully going to be getting her mission call this week, which I will post about after she has a chance to tell people herself first. :)

I thought I'd make a suggestion for a very easy Christmas gift that everyone can give- write to the missionaries! They can really use love and support, especially at this time of the year. Dearelder.com makes it REALLY easy to write to the missionaries, and it's free to write to most of them*. Just like sending an email. All you do is go to the website, select the mission, and enter your mailing address and the missionary's name. That's it! Then you can write your letter, and they print it off and mail it for you. It takes about 2 weeks to get to most missions. If you write to somebody in the MTC, it gets there the same day.

I really wish I had discovered how easy Dearelder is to use before my sister Sara went into the MTC. I would have written a lot more letters if I didn't have to find an envelope and a stamp. So now you know how easy it is too! If you need someone to write to, ideas about what to write, or anything else, please let me know.  And please write a  little note to a missionary- they'd love to hear from you!

*If your missionary happens to be serving in a mission that isn't free, Dearelder only charges you the cost of the stamp. They still print your letter and mail it for you, and it's still easier than finding a stamp and envelope yourself.
