Hola President Dennis! I leave for my mission in September to Guayaquil West! I am so excited for my mission and can't wait to serve. I am also excited that you have a mission blog.
We are so excited to have you come! We are glad you found the blog although we have not yet posted anything but within the next week or so we will. You will love this mission. We just arrived and it is the best mission in the world!!! Sis. Dennis
Sister Dennis that is so amazing! I have so many questions...I know it's a new mission but wanted to find out the email address where I can send questions about mission specific things. Can you email me at firstname.lastname@example.org?
Sister Dennis,Sister Waite's mom here. I was wondering if you could post the address to mail letters and packages to our missionaries on this blog. That would be wonderful if that is possible. Thank you so much.Sister Waitep.s. I loved seeing the pictures of my dear sweet Hermana Waite. Thank you.
I will definitely do that, Sis. Waite. I had not thought about it. Thank you for the suggestion! We love your daughter and will see her again at zone conference in about ten days.
Thank you for posting that address, and please, give my daughter a hug for me when you see her. Thanks for all your hard work and all that you do.
I gave your daughter two big hugs when I saw her on Saturday at Zone Conference. She has had tonsillitis but is on an antibiotic and is doing fine.
Sweet!!! Thank you, Thank you. She sounded so much happier in her email on Monday. I am sure it was the hugs! Your awesome! Thank you.
I will do that! Thank you, Sis. Waite:)
Hola Sis. Dennis. I am Michael Costello's mother. I just wanted to send you a brief message telling you and your husband how sincerely grateful I am for the love and kindness you have shown my son. Michael arrived home on Saturday and he has an appointment tomorrow morning with a specialist and hopefully will be able to schedule his surgery at that time. He loves the people of Ecuador and I am so grateful he will be going back to Guayaquil West as soon as he recovers. A few weeks ago Michael emailed and told me he'd met with President Dennis and told him what was going on with his medical issues. He said that your husband cancelled many of the appointments scheduled after Michael's so that he could get a better understanding of what was going on with his health. Please tell him how grateful I was for the interest and concern he showed. Thank you both for taking care of him! Much love,Sister Lacey
Thank you for your note, Sis. Lacey. We are glad Elder Costello got there alright and that he will soon have the surgery he needs. I'm so sorry he has suffered with this for so long, but it tells us what kind of a missionary he is that he continued to work so hard even with the constant headaches. We're glad that will be taken care of soon. Give him our best. We'll be praying for a successful outcome and a swift return to the mission field. Also, tell him that he'll probably have plenty of time on his hands while he's recuperating and that will be the perfect time to study Preach My Gospel as much as possible and also to watch The District DVD's. If he doesn't have those DVDs, they are at the Distribution Center and can be ordered. It will help him alot to watch all of the sections in both videos. That way some of this time away from the mission will be spent in becoming an even more effective Preach My Gospel missionary. I will pass on your message to my husband; thank you for your kind words. May the Lord bless you and Elder Costello in the weeks ahead! Sis. Dennis
