One Day More

     So, chances are good that if you're on this blog, you already know what it's about, but in the event that you have no idea why I'm going to Indonesia, here's some basic information.
     I have elected to serve a full-time mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  In February, I was assigned to serve in the Indonesia Jakarta mission, beginning on the 8th of May, which is tomorrow.  For the first part of my mission, I will be in Provo, Utah MTC, receiving training to be a missionary and to speak the Indonesian language, and in about two months, I will travel to Indonesia, where I will be assigned to an area to preach the gospel.   
     On my mission, I will have to chance to write home once a week, and those letters will be posted here by my mother.  If you would like to communicate with me, you can mail me letters or email me.  While I am in the MTC, my mailing address will be:

Elder Jacob Paul Heiner
MTC Mailbox #49
INDO-JAK 0708
2005 N 900 E
Provo, UT 84604-1793

     This address will change in about two months, when I actually arrive in Indonesia, and I will give you that address when I know it.  Also, you can send me letters through www.dearelder.com.  Or you can email me at jacob.heiner@myldsmail.net.  I will do my best to respond to you if you take the time to write to me.  
     Thank you all for your support, and I can't wait to get out and serve.  If you have any questions about what I am doing or what I believe, I invite you to ask me in a letter or email.  The turnaround time will probably not be very quick, so you might be better off asking a member of my family if it's a pressing question.

Love,
         Jacob
