  1. Short story- there's a guy I really like who's currently on his mission (a mission is where a young man at the age of 18 who has already graduated high school devotes 2 years of his life to preaching and teaching the doctrine of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. All young men in the LDS church are expected to go on a mission if they are worthy and choose to do so). He's only been on his mission for barely a month now. I wrote him a letter a few days after he got to the Mexico City MTC (Missionary Training Center except in Mexico City, it's called CCM). I just wrote some encouraging words, and left him with an inspiring scripture that applied to serving a mission. I paid for the stamp that was needed to send the letter, and I sent it, but I'm not sure if he's gotten it yet because he hasn't written me back. I've talked to my parents about this, and they said to not worry about him sending me a letter back because each day for him at the MTC until he goes into the field is completely filled from the moment he wakes up to the moment he goes to bed. My parents also said to continue sending him encouraging words, and scriptures I find that will keep his morale up. His parents also had a piece of paper at his mission farewell before he went on his mission that people could put their e-mails on and get weekly updates about his mission, and I put my e-mail on that list, so I know I shouldn't worry about a direct response from him, but I was wondering if missionaries usually write back to those who write them first whether it be by paper or by e-mail. Do missionaries usually reply to paper letters after they leave the MTC and are in the field, and they've gotten used to the routine? Would it be better if I e-mailed him instead of writing letters? Thanks!
  2. I grew up in the church, and up until about a year ago I was an active member. I am no longer active nor do I wish to be, it’s not something that works for me. The complicated side of that is I was seriously dating a boy who left on a mission recently and I have no idea how to write to him. I want to write to him and send him uplifting things and support him, but I don’t know what to write about considering I don’t believe in the same things as the lds church. So I don’t want to send the typical weekly miracles, favorite scriptures, uplifting Sunday school lessons, etc. because that would just be fake. So what do I write? He knows me, he knows I’m not active and don’t plan on being, and that’s been totally okay for a long time now.
  3. Hello! I have been writing a missionary who has been out in the field for a little over 11 months now. He will be a year long missionary this next July, and I've been trying to come up with some encouraging quotes and notes to send to him since it will be his one year mark. I'm not exactly sure what to say. I have a lot of general conference quotes, and some scriptures, but I can't think of anything for me to say. Each letter, I always end it the same with "Stay safe and keep up the good work!" and I'm trying to add more encouraging things to say in this letter. What would be some good things to include?
  4. Is it okay to send short emails to a missionary you had previously dated? I don't send romantic stuff, just encouraging emails. Is this okay? And how often is enough?
  5. I have a few friends on missions, and I decided its about time I be a good friend and write a couple. How do I use the pouch service? How many stamps should I use if the letter will go to foreign countries? Does the pouch service work for all countries in which missions are served? Spain? Philippines? Peru? Does the pouch service work for all of those? Basically, any info you have on the pouch service I would love to hear. Thank you! -olivia.
