"Wherefore, ye must press forward with a steadfastness in Christ, having a perfect brightness of hope, and a love of God and of all men. Wherefore, if ye shall press forward, feasting upon the word of Christ, and endure to the end, behold, thus saith the Father: Ye shall have eternal life." 2 Nephi 31:20

Pouch Mail Service

Elder Andrews only receives regular mail once per month. He would like to hear from us more often, though, so you can e-mail Katherine Andrews (Mom) at a weekly letter. She will compile these letters into one e-mail for Elder Andrews to be able to print more easily so he can read our letters when he is not pressed for time--remember that he only gets a small amount of time to use e-mail each week.

Keep in mind, the addresses for letters and packages are available below Elder Andrews' photo (available throughout the blog).

--------------The following options will only get to him once per month!--------------

The Church provides a more reliable mail service for missions in countries that do not have reliable services otherwise. Elder Andrews' mission is part of the pouch service. For detailed information on their strict policies, please visit this link.

If you would rather use a free service--such as remove the headache of making sure you followed the guidelines correctly, I have some instructions you can follow below.

    Step 1
    Click on "View Your Account" in the upper lefthand section.

    Step 2
    In the "Tool Bar" (upper right hand section), either clear any previous addresses for Elder Andrews OR when completing the following steps, use a name you will recognize for POUCH mail. Then click on "Add Missionary."

    Step 3
    Select "Elder" from the drop-down menu for the appropriate title. Enter his first and last names. Select the Mexico Villahermosa Mission from the next drop-down menu. Optionally enter his birthday (12 April) using the drop-down menus.

    Step 4
    Make sure you get this screen indicating "Missionary Added." Then click on "View Your Account."

    Step 5
    Now you will see in the "Tool Bar" that I have Elder Caleb Andrews in my "Quick List." I will now click on his name for the next screen.

    Step 6
    For security purposes, I have removed my address, but that normally shows up automatically. Elder Andrews' name and mission show up automatically since I saved that information to my "Quick List." My e-mail address automatically shows up. I could e-mail the same letter to Elder Andrews, but he has very limited time to sort through e-mails. Instead, consider e-mailing this letter to Katherine Andrews (Mom; to compile and send to him. I will likely use this option and let Katherine and Elder Andrews that the letter will come to him in print later on.
