Dear Brother & Sister Byrd:
We just wanted you to know that your son has safely arrived in the Utah Salt Lake City Central Mission. We thought you might enjoy the attached picture.
Elder Bowler has been assigned to work in District 2 in the Bennion Zone with Elder Ferguson as his trainer. His mailing address 6088 Shirl St. Taylorsville, UT 84123. His P-day is Tuesdays where he will have the opportunity to email home.
We enjoyed meeting your missionary and promise to take good care of him while he is in the mission field. Your son would love to receive a letter or email from you each week. We invite you to keep your correspondence positive, uplifting and encouraging.
We thank you for the sacrifice in sending him to our mission to “Preach The Gospel.” Like Alma, we know that
“…the preaching of the word had a great tendency to lead the people to do that which was just- yea, it had had more powerful effect upon the minds of the people than the sword, or anything else, which had happened unto them…” (Alma 31:5)
President Richard and Sister Amy Moffat
