Dear Pyper Family,
Tuesday we went to the airport in Montevideo, Uruguay, to pick up Elder Pyper and welcome him into our mission. He arrived full of excitement and enthusiasm to get to work.
We have spent the day getting to know him, and we recognized that he will be a great asset to us here in the mission. We know that he will bless the lives of many wonderful people.
Wednesday was transfer day and after meeting with his trainer, he headed off to his first area so that he could start ¨ [bringing] to pass the immortality and eternal life of man¨.
We are now sending you a photo that we took with him. As you can see, he is extremely excited and ready to start. We are so excited to have your son with us and hope that you receive this photo with excitement and pride in all that your son has done to prepare himself for the opportunity that he now has to serve the Lord for the next two years.
