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.

July 28, 2014

No letter from Collin today.   I kept refreshing my email, but nothing came.   Later that day I received a note from Sister Berrett.   The Berrett's are a "senior couple" serving as missionaries in the Liberian Mission.   They take care of the missionaries, make sure they have what they need, and it's wonderful to know that they are watching out for our boys.  I love that Collin thought I might worry and wanted me to know that he was ok.  

Sister Berrett's note:

Sister Park - just got a call from Elder Park asking if I would let you know that when they went to the internet cafe, there was no internet so his whole apartment was unable to email today.  He knew you'd be worried.  He wanted me to be sure and tell you that 'HE LOVES YOU!'  (I'll bet you already know that!)  and not to worry.  I know this is not as good as getting an email from your missionary today, but hope it helps.   Sister Berrett
