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 few weeks ago Collin's Uncle Sparky got married to an amazing lady from Portland, her name is Kristi.  Kristi has a friend who has a son that was called to the same mission as Collin - and he was on the plane with Collin last Friday to Ghana!  Small world.  We have connected over the internet and she sent me this picture today and let me share it with you.  Those in the front row include the West African Area Seventy.   Elder Park is on the right, back row, second from the end,  the elder from Portland is on the left, back row, second from the end.            -Collin's Mom
