An open letter to my Token Male Reader



Dear Token Male Reader,
You know who you are.  You that lives in a very sunny warm place.  You, who just got your mission call and will be heading east and speaking Mandarin Chinese.  You, who doesn't have an email with your comment so I could reply privately.
Yeah you!

Congratulations!  I couldn't be happier for any other perfect stranger than I am for you!  You are about to undertake a most amazing and growing experience.

I wonder if I could trouble you for a favor.  Maybe two years worth of favors.........????

I have been missing my Monday Missionary updates.  I've had a few readers who've mentioned they miss them too.  Would you be willing to drop me a small note on your P-days, I mean Preparation Days, and give us an update?  You can stay anon if you like, you can send it to my email.  If your mission rules state only one email to family per week, could you include a paragraph in your parents email and they could forward to me?

I would love to hear all about your adventures, your experiences and amazing stories that you are certain to have.  It would make for fun reading and learning on my end.  Below is the picture I'll use just for your profile only.  Unless, you want to get brave, and "come out".  Otherwise, you will be heretofore be known as "The Male Token Reader what is now a Missionary"  (yes I used improper English, it's an inside joke)

Anyhoo, MTR - I would love it if you would participate, I will also understand if you can't.

Drop me a line via email  here

And any 'posers' who try to dupe me into thinking they are the MTR - I will definitely know!

Sincerely,
The silly old blogger that wants more missionary stories from a young entertaining lad, M-Cat.

Elder MTR,
Mandarin Chinese? So cool! They teach that at our elementary school. It would be so fun to hear about your mission.

So say yes and let us all live vicariously through M-Cat who will live vicariously through you!

I've never actually been to your blog, but I see you commenting on many of my favorites so I am finally coming to visit you..

Anyway, I think this is a fabulous idea! I love reading about missionary work.

Yay! That would be great. I know just how you are feeling here. . . my parents just left for a 18 month mission to Nashville, TN. (they left one week before Chad came home. Rats) But I have a feeling they won't be as faithful about writing as Chad was. If they are, I will post the good stuff!
