Houston at Last!

Dear Parents,
We are pleased to let you know that your missionary has arrived safely in the Texas Houston South Mission, the best mission in the world!!  They are happy and absolutely wonderful. President Ashton and I are thrilled to welcome them. We had a terrific afternoon and evening together. They received some training and talked with people on the streets of Houston.  We also had dinner together and then we enjoyed a beautiful testimony meeting. They come with such courage and strength. We were very impressed by their character and preparation.  You should be very proud of them.

I have attached a photo from our gathering tonight in the mission home. As you can see, there are many smiles.  We have seven children.  Our youngest is 1 month and our oldest is 13. They are so excited to be a part of your missionary's life!

Again, thank you for the opportunity you have given us to serve with these fine missionaries. We love them already and promise to take good care of them. May you find great joy and blessings as you continue to support them in bringing souls to Christ through His restored gospel. This is His work and these missionaries are on His errand. More joy awaits them than they have ever experienced!
With love,
President and Sister Ashton, Spencer, Braeden, Jacob, Elisabeth Kate, Ethan, Daniel, and Wesley
