It is our pleasure to have your son serving in the India Bangalore Mission. He will serve as companions with Elder Gottipati from the US. They are assigned to the city of Rajahmundry which is a great area for missionary work. There is great support from the members there and the church is growing. Attached are some pictures we took yesterday of your son.
We express our gratitude to you for your help in your son's preparation. This is an exciting area of the world for missionary work. We are hoping that with your son''s help we can have some new stakes in India in the next couple of years.
Just a reminder on sending packages, it is best to send them to the mission office. Sometimes transfers happen without a lot of notice and they could possibly be moved to a new area or even city. Sometimes there are customs fees imposed on packages, when that happens the office will usually pay the fees and then work it out with the missionary to pay it back. We can usually get the packages to them fairly quickly. Some missionaries prefer their parents put money in their personal account for birthdays and other events. Most things are available here and it saves shipping and customs charges. We are very happy to assist you in any way we can.
If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to contact us.
