Presented here are portions of Elder Daniel Willoughby’s fourteenth email from the Mongolia Ulaanbaatar Mission. If anyone wishes to send Daniel a message, write it in the comments and I will make sure he receives it.
Happy Mother’s Day Mom!
The pictures are of the baptism two weeks ago and the service project we did with multiple churches last week. Keep up the great work. It sounded like everyone was doing well and having a great life. Thanks for the continued support and love. We are working to help people continue to come to church and activities. Paul, Steven, and Jake will you send any good ideas of activities that you have done? We hold family home evenings on Monday. I wasn’t in the singles ward so I’m not very familiar with many activities. How do you balance your schedule to attend church and go to school? The members here are having similar challenges.
Missionary work is still going great. It was fun talking to you [for Mother’s Day]. This week we supported the members more and did a lot of service and activities with them. We are doing our best to strengthen the members as well and bring more into the church. It was neat to see Mongon Od pass the sacrament yesterday. He had a smile on and was doing his best to learn from the members what to do. He is a great new member. He received the calling to stand at the door and welcome people.
As for things that I need I don’t think I need anything. The dictionary will be nice to have like I said, but I could do without one. I am happy to serve the Lord and do my best so He can use me as an instrument in His hands.
You do good work Dad. Thanks for being a great father and good example to me.
Love, Elder Willoughby
