letter of departure

We received a letter of departure from the MTC President Edwards yesterday.  It was a nice letter.  It definitely sounds like a form letter but it was nice anyway.  In their defense, it would be very difficult to send a personalized letter to each family of each missionary that was leaving the EMTC.  We are looking forward to hearing from Sister J tomorrow and also learning what area she will be serving in first!!!  (Since I am hoping to print this blog when J returns home from her mission I will add the contents of the letter also)....

Dear Brother and Sister Egbert,

Your daughter will be departing the England Missionary Training Centre on Saturday morning, March 2.  We want you to know how much we have enjoyed having her with us. 

Sister Egbert is a fine young woman and we are grateful for the opportunity we have had to work with her on a daily basis.  She is well-prepared for her mission and she continues each day to grow spiritually.  She is developing good teaching skills and is excited about the work.  She is ready for full time service in the England Birmingham Mission.

We love this young woman and are grateful to you for all you have done to prepare her for this wonderful time in her life.  Your love and continued support are important to her success.   Letters from home are always greatly anticipated and appreciated.  Please address all future mail to:

England Birmingham Mission
187 Penns Lane
Sutton Coldfield
West Midlands
B76 1 JU England
United Kingdom

May you and your family be blessed as she continues to serve our Heavenly Father.
