Introducing... President y Sister Richardson!

Date: August 7, 2014
Letter From Mission President

Colton's Mission President and his wife write to confirm his safe arrival in country and send a few pics!  We are so excited to hear from them.  A mission president and his wife serve as surrogate parents to Colton while he is down in Ecuador and will direct him on most things spiritual and temporal.

Dear Kimball family,

We are pleased to inform you of the safe arrival of Elder Kimball in the Ecuador Quito North Mission.  We spent three days last week training with him and he will undoubtedly be a great addition to our mission.  He shared with us that he is the oldest of seven, of which was recently born and he hasn’t met!  Congratulations on that!  He also mentioned that his Grandpa mentioned how much he loves Otavalo.  Though he didn’t start there, I’m sure he’ll have the opportunity to work in Otavalo during the course of his mission

We assure you that we will do everything possible to help Elder Kimball have a positive experience here in the newly formed Ecuador Quito North Mission.  This is a wonderful mission that experiences a high number of baptisms, and success in reactivation. Our boundaries include coast, jungle, a native Indian area, as well as the highly populated city of Quito so our missionaries have a wide range of experiences.

The theme of our mission is translated “The Center of the World; Centered on Christ,” and we have a wonderful group of 14 missionaries that arrived with him.  He will be serving in the coastal area of Esmeraldas with Elder Motesino from Honduras.

The Lord is hastening the Work of Salvation and this is an amazing time to be a missionary.  Elder Kimball is needed here and we are so grateful he has chosen to serve a mission.  We will care for him as if he were our own. 
We know you’re already planning on it, but we want to remind you to write your son a weekly letter.  His preparation day will be on Mondays.

With much love,

President and Sister Richardson
