We’ve received word that Elder Glosenger is now in Las Vegas! Go Ben! Now the fun truly begins. My parents received an email from the mission president, and here is a portion of that note. The best part?! PICTURES! If you miss Ben as much as we all do, these incredibly happy pictures of Ben will bring you a smile :o)
“Dear Glosenger Family,
I am happy to inform you that Elder Glosenger arrived in Las Vegas with a smile on his face and a wonderful spirit. Thank you for preparing him to serve the Lord. We will do our best to build on what you have taught him by incorporating the principles of missionary work found in Preach My Gospel. When his service is finished he will be a stronger person with a deep commitment to the Lord. He will be serving in the North Zone.
We hope as you write or email him weekly to express your love, that you will also encourage him to live up to the commitments he made when he accepted this call. Missionary work is hard, and many times it is discouraging. Your letters of encouragement and love will help him continue to work hard and be happy.
Your love and support are so important to his success. He will be blessed as he is obedient and he will be happier. Again we thank you for your faith in sending your son out to serve the Lord.
Michael A. Neider, President
NEVADA LAS VEGAS MISSION”
Write to him, all his friends. You know, all of you who said you would, but maybe haven’t done it yet? You know who you are!
(Cece saw this pic and said “Umple Ben!” and the boys said “He looks happy.” “But I miss him.”)
