I realized that some might not have used Dear Elder before, so I thought I would do a quick how-to to help you familiarize yourself. It’s easier than writing a physical letter, and it’s free while I’m in the MTC. Once in California, it’s the cost of a postage stamp. The cool thing about using it while I’m in the MTC is that if you send it before 12:00 pm MST, Monday thru Friday, I will receive it that evening!
Step 1: go to dearelder.com.
Step 5: enter your address and mine (will be posted and updated on APG under the “contact me” tab).
Step 7: click ‘send letter’ when you’ve finished! I’d love to hear from you – letters are a missionary’s best friend! And I have a lot of stationary to use up to write you back!
*sometimes it might be easier to write your letter in a word document and then copy/paste it into the letter area, in case it somehow shorts out – the site does not save what you’ve written.
