Misión Chile Concepción/letter and pictures from the President

30 August 2016
Dear  Brother and Sister Hope,
Sister Catala and I had the great pleasure of welcoming Elder Trenton Nathan Hope to the Chile Concepción Mission.  After we met him at the airport when he arrived, we enjoyed lunch together with the other missionaries.  We held an orientation and testimony meeting and Hope met his new companion, Elder Williams Gomez Colman, who will train him to be a missionary. They will be laboring in the District of Chiguayante 1 and located in the Zone of Chiguayante.
A mission is a wonderful experience filled with challenge and success that strengthens the testimony and spirituality of each missionary. The greatest support you as a family can give your missionary during his service as a missionary is that of uplifting letters.  Missionaries look forward with great anticipation to each letter from home.  In addition to using email, you can send packages and letters to our address.  The U.S. Postal Service and the Correos de Chile do a good job of delivering packages.  Do not send packages or medicine by Fedex, DHL and UPS as it often results in delays, lost merchandise and extra costs because of duty at the customs office in Chile. We do not have an agent who coordinates shipments arriving at the customs office in Santiago or Concepción to facilitate transactions nor the resources for duty payments.
Elder Trenton Nathan Hope
We encourage each of our missionaries to write to their parents each week.  Please let me know if a reminder to him is needed. You may contact us using e-mail at XXXXXXXXXX

We invite you to look at our blog:

It will be our privilege to work closely with Elder Hope as he serves here in Chile.  We are blessed to have him join us in this mission and know that he will have many life changing experiences as he proclaims the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Thank you for your support and for sharing your son with us.
President and Hermana Catala
