Greetings from Uruguay! We are so happy that all of the new missionaries arrived safe and sound today. They are such an impressive group!! We have been anxiously awaiting their arrival and look forward to spending the next day or so together. The remainder of today will be spent in interviews with President Olsen and in some training. Tomorrow morning they will meet their trainers and head out to their new areas.
As a family, we are excited to get to know your missionary better. Each will become a member of our family. We will love them and take care of them as if they were our own. Having served here myself, I can promise that your missionary will develop a deep love for the wonderful people of Uruguay. They will each find their own “waters of Mormon” here in Uruguay. In a beautiful way, their lives will be changed forever.
We anticipate greatness from these missionaries and will do all we can to love and support them in this incredible work. If you ever have any questions or need anything, feel free to shoot me a message. The fastest way to get a response is to message me through Facebook (Julie Darrington Olsen). We also have a mission Facebook page "President and Sister Olsen, Misioón Uruguay Montevideo Oeste”.
We feel so blessed to serve here along side you missionary. We have an obedient, dedicated mission and we find joy in serving. Most of all, we love you for all you do to support your missionary! May the Lord bless your family as your missionary serves here in the Uruguay Montevideo West Mission. We join with all of our missionaries in working to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We love Him and testify of Him!
With much love,
(an email with the details of companions and assigned areas will be sent tomorrow)
