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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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.
