We have had a great day in the Texas San Antonio Mission. In the morning we left 28 very wonderful missionaries to return to their families. In the afternoon we received your 31 missionaries. They are absolutely inspiring. They are full of energy, excitement, and faith. We really look forward to watching this group grow and experience the marvels of a mission.
We will write more later, but just this quick note to tell you that they are here, safe and sound. They are ready to go to the Alamo where we will teach them to love Texas and then to place their first Book of Mormon in the mission.
If we can do anything for you please don't hesitate to let us know.
The Lord's blessings be upon you,
James E. Slaughter
President, Texas San Antonio Mission
