My mission email:

that's the main informational stuff for mail. I don't actually leave
for another couple months obviously, but I'll be trying to compile
email lists etc so if you would like to receive my weekly missionary
update emails, reply to this email. Otherwise, I'll totally understand.
I also have a blog. I update it regularly now, but hopefully I can get
someone in my family to update it with my missionary emails after I

I'm not sure what the email rules are for my mission.
Rules differ for different places. I know some missions allow
missionaries to send and receive emails from friends and family, others
only allow email correspondence with family. Letters can be received
from anyone however and I've thus far been pretty good about writing
people in my life.

That's the general news I've got for now.
Wow, exciting news! Let me know how you're doing and I'll hopefully
hear back from a couple of you before I leave in three months. I know,
it's not that soon. I'm so excited for this opportunity to share the
Gospel of Jesus Christ with others. It's an important work and
somebody's got to do it! Might as well be me. Love you! Love, Merilee

You can't really read your font because it's too small.
