On July 26, 2016, Elder Carter Copeland began his two-year missionary service for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormon Church). This blog is intended for those who want to share his experiences for the next two years as he serves the Lord and the people of the Scotland/Ireland Mission.
On 16Aug 2016,we welcomed Elder Carter
Copeland to the Scotland/Ireland Mission. He arrived safely
from the Missionary Training Center and we are excited to have him in our
mission. I interviewed himand
felt hisspirit and desire
to serve our Heavenly Father. One of our very best missionaries, Elder Elsmore,hasbeen assigned to be his trainer.
SisterDonaldson and I will have the opportunity to meet with your son for a
personal interview every two to three months. In addition, we will
see him periodically at Zone Conferences and other training meetings.
Each week your missionary will be writing me a letter
of his activities as well as a personal note. Hewill also meet regularly
with his district and zone leaders where hewill be trained with other
missionaries. Therefore, with interviews, zone conferences and our weekly
letters I should be able to help him meet any challenges he may have, and
answer any questions you may have.
We are grateful for the part you have played in preparing your
son to serve in this important work. We would encourage you to
write him weekly letters of encouragement. Letters from home provide
a powerful sustaining effect on the confidence and morale of our missionaries.
If you at any time have a concern about your missionary, please
feel free to contact us here at the Mission Home in Edinburgh. We testify
of the truthfulness of this work and are grateful to be a part of it.

Therefore, dearly beloved brethren, let us
cheerfully do all things that lie in our power; and then may we stand
still, with the utmost assurance, to see the salvation of God, and
for his arm to be revealed.
