June 9, 2011 - Letter from the mission president

This is part of a letter we received via email from his mission president. Here you can see where he is assigned and who will be his companion. We are sooo excited for him. A returned missionary from Mada told us that he is lucky because he is near the ocean! Yeah! I can't wait to get his first email on Monday.

Everyone, please continue to write him using Dear Elder. I know he loves those letters! Thanks for your support!

Antananarivo, 9 June 2011

 Brother and Sister Walker,

Your son, Elder WALKER arrived safely in Madagascar.  After prayerful consideration, I assigned him to labor initially in Ankirihiry with Elder EVANS. one of our best missionaries.  We will do everything in our power to see that your son’s missionary experience is all that it should be and one that will be a source of strength to him throughout his life.

As your son takes the gospel forth, he will have some new experiences, some of which will probably be a great challenge, especially learning a new language, being away from home in a foreign land and culture, adjusting to missionary life, and getting along with companions and other missionaries.  Experience shows that missionaries who lose themselves in the work quickly overcome any obstacles.

Your weekly letters will greatly influence his success and be an important source of emotional and spiritual support.  Please make letters to him cheerful and uplifting.  Family members are authorized to send emails to their missionaries, subject to the guidelines established by the brethren.

For any package you would like to send to Madagascar use the address below (very important) when using DHL or any other mail company:

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Days Saints
Madagascar Antananarivo Mission
B.P. 5094
Dingana III

Each missionary receives the Missionary Handbook.  Your missionary has committed to living by the principles of this handbook.  You can be of great support to your missionary if you are aware of some of these principles.

Sean Edmund DONNELLY, President
Madagascar Antananarivo Mission
