... And Made Contact

Well ... sort of. We just received a letter and some pictures from President Poznanski. Here are some excerpts from it:

            "... Sister Poznanski and I were delighted to welcome your son, Elder Trevor Ford Wilson, into the France Paris Mission on Tuesday, October 23rd, 2012.  He and his MTC companions were enthusiastic and all arrived in good health.  He spent his first day eating some home cooked food, napping, visiting with me, contacting non-members in the heart of Paris, and sharing testimonies in our home.  We enjoyed his spirit ...

            ... We feel very privileged to work with your son.  We also realize the responsibility we share with you to help him continue to grow spiritually as he faithfully performs his duties.  May the Lord inspire us all to sustain him in this challenging and exciting assignment.  We hope you will join Sister Poznanski and me in praying each day for your son, his companion, investigators, and all of us serving in the France Paris Mission.

            A positive, supportive letter from home every week does wonders to sustain a missionary’s morale.  Proverbs 25:25 states:  "As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country..."

The first area he will be serving in is Strasbourg, right on the German border. If you would like his apartment address, please contact me, his mom. My email can be found in the link above "How To Contact Me." 

So exciting. Can't wait to get his first letter/email to hear about all his adventures so far!
