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.

This picture was taken from the Sierra Leone Mission Blog (see link in the column on the right)

Collin left the MTC and flew to Liberia.  This picture shows Elder Kamara, Sister Addo, Elder Park, Elder LaMont and Elder Dahlin as they arrived at the Roberts International Airport this afternoon. The mission blog said they are in their apartments for the evening and will receive orientation from the Assistants in Liberia and from the Senior Couples.  The mission president and his wife will arrive in Liberia on Saturday. President Roggia will interview each and welcome them to the Sierra Leone Freetown Mission.   Hopefully more pictures will be posted to the mission blog this weekend.
