Thank you for sending Elder Austin James Ewell to the mission field and supporting his service to the Lord. It has been a great blessing for Sister Roth and me to have him serve in the Bulgaria Sofia Mission. He has served with distinction and has brought honor to his family through his service.
Elder Ewell returns with a greater knowledge and firmer testimony of the mission of Jesus Christ and the Restoration of His Gospel, of the establishment of the Lord's Kingdom on the earth in these latter days, and the importance of following the Savior's living Apostles and Prophets. Elder Ewell has gained a profound love for the Lord and for all of our Heavenly Father's children. He has learned the value of work, of personal integrity, of keeping sacred covenants, of daily personal prayer and scripture study, of planning and setting goals, and of selfless service to others. These are lessons that will bless his life forever and bring joy to you as his parents.
Sister Roth joins me in this expression of gratitude. We recognize the sacrifice you have made to have him in the mission field. Thank you. We were privileged to labor with him in the Bulgaria Sofia Mission.
We pray the Lord's blessing upon you and your loved ones.
With warm regards,
Gerold Roth, President
