News from Chile!

Just received this picture and email from Sean's mission president:

Dear Brother and Sister McAlister,

Sister Arrington and I had the great pleasure of welcoming your son, Elder McAlister, to the Chile Concepción Mission. After we met him at the airport when he arrived on Friday, we enjoyed lunch together with the other new missionaries.  Afterwards, we held an orientation and testimony meeting, and Elder McAlister met his first companion, Elder Donoso, who will train him to be a missionary. They will be laboring in the sector of Linares 1B and located in the zone of Linares.              

A mission is a wonderful experience filled with challenge and success that strengthens the testimony and spirituality of each missionary. The greatest support you as a family can give your son during his time as a missionary is that of uplifting letters. Missionaries look forward with great anticipation to each letter from home. In addition to using email, you can send packages and letters to our address. The U.S. Postal Service and the Correos de Chile do a good job of delivering mail and packages.

     Castellon 1063    Oficina Norte
     Concepción, Chile
     Casilla 2210

You may also send letters (and only letters taped shut; no envelopes) via the "pouch.

     Elder Sean McAlister

     POB 30150
     Salt Lake City, UT 84130-0150

We encourage each of our missionaries to write to their parents each week. Please let me know if a reminder to him is needed.

It will be our privilege to work closely with Elder McAlister as he serves here in Chile.  We are blessed to have him join us in this mission and know that he will have many life changing experiences as he proclaims the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your support and for sharing your son with us.
