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.

September 7, 2013

It's always a good day when you get actual mail from Africa.  The letter (dated August 19, 2013) was super short, not even half a page, but it came with 3 pictures.  In his letter he said:  "My apartment is great, my district is awesome.   I have some of my closest friends with me.  Not much to report on.  Same old thing for me:  teaching, studying, sleeping.  Day in, day out." 

Here are the pictures he sent and what was written on the back:

After building a house we took some pictures.

It rained while we were washing.  We were all freezing.  But after we looked good, or as the Liberians would say, were were "bluffing."

July 29, 2013
We went to celebrate Elder Marondera's one year, and my 6 months.
