Dear Brother and Sister Bush,
Elder Bush arrived safely in the Russia Vladivostok Mission on 1 May 2010. He was tired after a long journey, but happy to be in the Russian Far East.
We love the Russian people and the opportunity we have to share with them the blessings of the Restored Gospel. We are so happy to have Elder Bush join us in this work. The work is difficult here, and the conditions sometimes arduous, but we will look after him. We encourage you to correspond weekly with him. Your messages should be uplifting and encouraging. Please do not burden him with concerns that will weigh heavy on his heart or detract from his work.
Our mission is to help your son magnify his calling and to keep him safe to the best of our ability. Thank you for entrusting us with his care and keeping.
A photograph taken soon after your son’s arrival is attached. Have a great day.
