You have probably heard the news that the Church changed its guidelines regarding missionaries and communication with their families. Instead of waiting for Christmas and Mother's Day, missionaries can talk to their families once a week via text, online messaging, phone calls, and video chat in addition to writing letters and emailing family members.
