Blog Description

This is a blog for the family and friends of Collin Park. He will be serving a two year mission in the Sierra Leone Freetown Mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, he left on January 24, 2013. While Collin is on his mission his Mom will be posting pictures and letters as she gets them, the content will be straight from Collin (unless otherwise noted) - spelling and punctuation will be corrected of course! Commentary and clarification may be added by his Mom as needed.
UPDATE: Collin's mission was split in half! The Sierra Leone Mission included the country of Liberia when Collin first left. As of July 1, 2013, the mission was split along the border and the new mission created: the Liberia, Monrovia Mission. Collin will never see the country of Sierra Leone. He has been in Monrovia Liberia since he left the MTC in Ghana.
ANOTHER UPDATE: Because of the Ebola outbreak in West Africa, Liberia and Sierra Leone Missions were evacuated on August 4, 2014 and missionaries were reassigned to different missions. Collin was reassigned to the Salt Lake City Central Mission.

A Short Email from Collin – answers to some questions I had:
I have less time today than i did yesterday. 
The food is good but we had tuna a couple days ago, I didn’t eat much but I did try it!   I stopped when I gagged a little. Haha.   I don’t have to worry too much about the germs here in the MTC but I will be careful about it when leave.
There is a chance I will fly to Liberia and not Sierra Leone.  I don’t know yet but I will find out soon, probably Saturday or Sunday I think.
My companion is from Cape Coast Ghana, about 2 hours away I think.
There are about 10 Americans here and I think 8 are going to Sierra Leone, the others are staying in Ghana.
Out of time.  I’m doing good, don’t worry.
Love you
Elder Park
