Dear Sister and Brother Weston,
We warmly welcome Elder Weston to the Adriatic South Mission. After a long flight he arrived in Tirana. He and a temporary, experienced companion tried a little street contacting. Then he had an interview with President Weidmann.
Today has been a very busy day for your son. It started with breakfast at the mission home with the Weidman’s.
Then we took them up to the place where the dedicatory prayer was offered for the proselyting of the gospel in Albania. This is a very spiritual experience. They read the dedicatory prayer offered by Elder Dallin H. Oaks in 1993. They read it together as a group and then separated to study and ponder it, then pray about it. Our missionaries come out of that experience loving Albania and its people.
You have a very special son who is strong and he will do a great work here. Thank you for sharing him with us. President Weidmann takes very good care of his missionaries. He loves them and they have no doubt that does. He sends them an uplifting text every morning and always signs it ‘Love President Weidmann’. They know they can call him anytime even if it is just to talk. Sister Weidmann is there making sure they have everything they need and that they are happy.
After the dedicatory experience it is back to the mission office for training, lunch, and to see who their companion will be. Your son’s companion is Elder Divkovic. They have been assigned to labor in Elbasan, Albania.
Here are a few pictures that were taken today.
