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 bunch of missionaries left this morning to go to their mission fields.  My good friends Elder Losee and Gherkins (serving in Sierra Leone) left.  I feel like I just said good bye to brothers.  It’s weird, I hardly know these guys but we're almost brothers.  I'll see them again.  More missionaries leave this afternoon, leaving 5 of us going tomorrow morning to Liberia.  It’s weird to think that I have been gone for 12 days.  It seems like way longer actually.  The days are long.  Hopefully they'll go faster in the coming weeks/months. I can’t wait to get letters when i finally get out there.

I arrive in Monrovia, Liberia at 3:10 tomorrow.

I love you all
Elder Park
