As we come to the end of our service in the England Manchester Mission, we want you to know what a blessing and privilege it has been to serve with your missionary. We have such great love and admiration for them as we have witnessed their faithfulness, obedience and diligence and we recognize that the Lord sent us some of his very special and valiant spirits. They answered the call of a prophet and did as the Savior asked by forsaking “mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters and friends” (Matt. 19:29) and by so doing they open the door to receiving the “riches of eternity.” (D&C 67:2)
Attached you will find a picture that was taken of your son/daughter at our final zone conference the past couple of days. The picture was taken with their zone in front of the Preston Temple.
President and Sister Preston arrive from the Mission President’s Seminar on June 28th at which time he will begin his service of presiding over the mission. We know President and Sister Preston well as they live within the mission boundaries. They are kind, loving people and your missionary will be in very good hands. President Preston has been a stake president in the Ashton Stake which is in the Manchester metro area and he has a great enthusiasm for missionary work.
We extend to you our love and thank you for raising such fine young men and women. Our lives have been forever changed and richly blessed to have served with them.
