Saturday I received a letter saying,
We are delighted to report that your son arrived safely to the Utah Provo Mission. I had a personal interview with Elder Rigby. We were most impressed with the high level of enthusiasm for the work and the desire to teach the gospel. His efforts will be appreciated in this mission as he waits for his Visa to Macedonia. The location of his first assignment is the Payson area. Our missionaries are currently teaching over 2400 lesson a week and we average 30-35 baptisms per week.
Mission Preparation Day is Monday, which is the day missionaries email. Mail sent through the U.S. Post Office MUST be sent first class or priority mail so we can forward it to your missionary. The mission address is:
