"For God hath not given the spirit of fear, but of POWER and of LOVE and of a SOUND MIND." 2 Timothy 1:7
Do not be afraid or ashamed of the gospel you bear, for Christ is your companion wherever you go!

December 8th

We wanted to let you know of our pleasure in welcoming your son into the mission field. We had a testimony meeting here at the mission home yesterday and felt the strong and fervent testimony of Elder Cottle.
We look forward to serving the Lord together for the next two years in this wonderful country of New Zealand. The beauty and strength of the land and the people is evident the moment you get here. We know all of your family will be blessed because of the faithful service of Elder Cottle. His testimony, talents and abilities will all be enhanced as he diligently completes his missionary service.As soon as he arrived at the mission home he offered to help prepare dinner. He was a great help. You've taught him well.

Warmest Regards,

President and Sister Kezerian
Wellington New Zealand Mission

Elder Cottle Left the Provo MTC Monday afternoon December 5th  and arrived at the Mission Home on Wednesday December 7th in time for dinner.  New Zealand is the furthest Mission from the Provo MTC about a 7,000 mile trip.
