Staying in Flagstaff

Gotta love Monsoon Season

Elder Andrew Baker is staying in Flagstaff for at least 6 more weeks.

Address is still:

315 W Phoenix Ave.
Apt. #4
Flagstaff, AZ  86001

I also wanted to let everyone know that the church policy regarding emails to missionaries has changed.  Family, friends, previous priesthood leaders, etc. can Email missionaries now.  Here is the official statement from the Arizona Phoenix mission president:

 UPDATE: As of March 2013, the Missionary Department has amended its email policy allowing expanded email privileges for missionaries. They can now email friends, priesthood leaders and recent converts - the latter with permission from the mission president.

So if you would like to email Andrew you can reach him at this address:


Elder Baker is also allowed to facebook, skype, and text missionary lessons or spiritual lessons with others.  

Following is what Elder Baker's mission president has posted:

As of July 31, 2013, the Arizona Phoenix Mission is an online-proselyting mission, authorized to use mormon.org; Facebook (including chat); email; Skype; blogs; and text messaging to help the missionaries accomplish their purpose.

It is so nice that we can communicate with our missionaries through these means.  We enjoy reading Elder Andrew Baker's Facebook posts and church videos he shares.  We can also post to his page or message him our testimonies, things we have learned in Church, spiritual lessons we have learned, etc.  We just need to keep it missionary minded.  

Last Sunday we skyped with Elder Baker during a Youth Fireside we had at our home. The youth were teaching each other principles from the "Plan of Salvation" section in the book Preach My Gospel.  After teaching each other we skyped with Elder Baker to discuss with him our success or questions on how to teach a certain principle.  It worked out really well and we all learned a lot about what it is like to be a missionary.  It was a great success.

Not all missions are allowed these online privileges yet, but all will be in the future.
