Elder Tarwater!

Everybody knows Robby is serving his missing in Africa. Here is a part of the letter Kim & Neal got shortly after he arrived to his area and a picture with his mission president. Also Robby can check his email, so if you would like to write to Robby you can email him at (Sorry I had to print & scan the picture, so it's not super clear!)

Dear Sister and Brother Tarwater,

Just a note to let you know that your son, Elder Robert Neal Tarwater, Jr has arrived safely and is doing well. We are delighted to have him here in the Mozambique Maputo Mission. He just left our home this evening after a welcoming dinner. He will return tomorrow for orientation in the morning and then join his first companion, Elder Cristiano Passos, from Guarulhos, Brazil. They will serve in the Maputo 2 Branch here in the capital city of Maputo.

Your son will learn by firsthand experience the joy of sharing the gospel and serving others. As he is faithful to his call from a prophet of God and obedient to the mission rules he will be helped in learning the lessons and increasing his testimony.

We hope you will write to him weekly, encouraging him as he serves a faithful mission. Mail is much faster if delivered electronically. He will only write once a week on his preparation day.

Thank you for sharing your son and preparing him to serve a mission.

Most Sincerely,
President Blair & Cindy Packard
Mozambique Maputo Mission
