Letter to Elder Copeland's Parents from New Mission President - July 13, 2018

Dear Brother and Sister Copeland,

Your son, Elder Copeland, will complete his full time missionary service in the Scotland/Ireland Mission on 16 July 2018.  He has been asked to meet with his Stake President as soon as possible following his return.

Elder Copeland has been an exceptional missionary and leader in the Scotland/Ireland Mission.  I have only been here a few weeks and yet I have grown to love him dearly.  His devotion to the work and his faithful obedience to mission rules have made him a valued friend and helper to me.  He has worked valiantly to the very end and has served successfully.  Many of the people in the areas he has served have had their hearts touched and their lives enriched as he shared the message of the Restored Gospel of Jesus Christ with them.  His contribution to the missionary effort has certainly moved the work forward and will have eternal consequences.  

Thank you for parting with him these past two years.  Your sacrifice and his has blessed all of us immensely.  Our love and prayers accompany him as he returns home to his dear ones.  

Mark A. Macdonald, President
Scotland/Ireland Mission
