Elder Copeland Has Arrived! August 16, 2016

Dear Brother & Sister Copeland,
On 16 Aug 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 him and felt his spirit and desire to serve our Heavenly Father.  One of our very best missionaries, Elder Elsmore, has been assigned to be his trainer.
Sister Donaldson 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.   He will also meet regularly with his district and zone leaders where he will 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.
