Dear Davies Family,
Today we went to the airport in Montevideo, Uruguay, to pick up Elder Davies and welcome him into our mission. He arrived a little tired, but full of excitement and enthusiasm to get to work.
We have spent the day with him getting to know him, and we have recognized that he will be an asset to us here in the mission. With this time that we have had with him he has shown many talents that will be put to use in blessing the lives of many wonderful people.
Today was the day of transfers; he met his trainer and then headed off for his first area so that he could start ¨[bringing] to pass the immortality and eternal life of man¨.
We are now sending you a photo that we took with him this afternoon. As you can see, he is extremely excited and ready to start. We are so excited to have your son with us and hope that you receive this photo with excitement and pride in all that your son has done to prepare himself for the opportunity that he now has to serve the Lord for the next two years.
The Da Silva´s
