Letter from Scott's Mission President
The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
Sierra Leone Freetown Mission
Here is a picture of your son as he arrived at the mission home. We thought you might enjoy seeing him with Sister Roggia and me. We are pleased to have him here in Sierra Leone.
We admire him for choosing to dedicate this time to the Lord. We know He will bless him in this great cause. We look forward to getting to know him better.
Missionaries love to hear from both families and church members. We encourage you to write often. It always gives the missionaries a lift to get a letter from home. You can send a normal letter or package directly to us by addressing it to him at the Sierra Leone Freetown Mission, P.O. Box 263, Freetown, Sierra Leone, West Africa. We hold the mail here for them until someone goes to his area. That may not be until Zone Conference. Of course he may use email, which they are allowed to do in this mission. We have found that www.dearelder.com is a great way for friends to write to your missionary since only family should be emailing him.
Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org in case you need to contact us. It is often easier than trying to call.
Thank you for sharing him with us! We are sure he will be a great missionary! We do love our missionaries. The Lord’s hand is on West Africa today. This is a special mission; we know he will come to love it.
President Richard P. Roggia Sister Cathy Roggia
