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.

January 13, 2015

Well this week wasn’t so good.   Not a whole to write about.

We are working with a Less Active Family, the Lavae's.   They are so fun, we always have really good conversations with them.  The son, the only son in the family, is awesome, he was in my last area and always joins in.   Since Elder Farnsworth got to this area, he's been here for 3 transfers now, they haven’t been to church, but on Sunday, they came to church!  The amount of excitement Elder Farnwsorth and I had was through the roof.   We were so happy!

In SLC the smog is terrible.   There are some nights I think I’m going to die.  Most days I couldn’t even see the mountains it’s that bad.   So to avoid having lung cancer, we are walking!   I missed walking ever since I got here.  I’m so happy to be doing it again.

Yesterday sucked....  it was a good ol' Washington type day.  It was just raining, and yes we were still walking.   We talked to a couple people but they weren’t too fond of talking to the missionaries..  it was interesting.

Well not much to say about this week.
