Arrival in Pachuca Mexico

Dear Parents- 

Your Elders have arrived safely. They were exhausted and starving but we remedied that up with food and interviews with President and then a place to rest their heads. We will meet again this morning at 930 for mission wide transfers, and training for the twenty new missionaries (11) natives and your ten with their new companions and then off to their new areas they will go. President finished interviews last night and commented that this was a talented group with some depth. He has prayed for inspiration on whom might be the best trainer for which missionary and hopefully with the Lords hand involved make a proper selection that will help enable success here in the first 5 weeks (next cycle/transfers) if not the entire 12 weeks ahead. We anticipated some significant adjustment including likely homesickness, physical illness and discouragement so we ask on your end to keep things positive and upbeat- reassure them they can do this and if needs be “to forget yourself and get to work” advise. We anticipate all will be able to look at emails from you next Monday which is their scheduled p day. Thank you again for sending your son to serve here in Pachuca as we are so excited they are here and have much for them to do. We already love each one for their sweet spirit and uniqueness they bring to the Mexico Pachuca Mission. May God Bless and Protect them while they are here as we strongly encourage obedience with exactness, being wise and never, never, never, leaving their companion and the rest is in the Lord’s hands. Continue your prayers in our mission behalf as we need them daily.

All our love,

  1. We received this from Elder Parkʻs mission presidentʻs wife just letting us know that the elders made it to Pachuca safe and sound. Now the journey truly begins for Elder Park. We are very thankful for all the prayers, love and support that comes from so many family and friends. Please continue to send your prayers his way as he transitions to what will be his life for the next 22 months. As Sister Egbert said, it is a transition time for the new arrivals and they need all the uplifting encouragement and prayers they can get. Again, we appreciate your love and prayers on his behalf, and all the goodies that was sent. He really appreciated each one!
