Scotland Mission Home
On June 26, 2013, we welcomed Elder Hanson to the Scotland/Ireland Mission. He arrived safely from the Missionary Training Center and we are excited to have him in our mission. I interviewed him and felt his spirit and desire to serve our Heavenly Father. One of our very best missionaries, Elder Holbrook has been assigned to be his trainer.
Sister Brown and I will have the opportunity to meet with your son for a personal interview every two to three months. In addition, we will see him periodically at Zone Conferences and other training meetings. Each week your missionary will be writing me a letter of his activities as well as a personal note. He will also meet regularly with his district and zone leaders where he will be trained with other missionaries. Therefore, with interviews, zone conferences and our weekly letters I should be able to help him meet any challenges he may have, and answer any questions you may have.
We are grateful for the part you have played in preparing your son to serve in this important work. We would encourage you to write him weekly letters of encouragement. Letters from home provide a powerful sustaining effect on the confidence and morale of our missionaries.
If you at anytime have a concern about your missionary, please feel free to contact us here at the Mission Home in Edinburgh. We testify of the truthfulness of this work and are grateful to be a part of it.

Brother & Sister Hanson ,Just a brief e-mail to let you know that your missionary, Elder Hanson, arrived safely in Scotland from the Preston, England Missionary Training Center. Upon arriving he had the opportunity to climb Arthur's Seat where he committed to serve the Lord, similar to what Orson Pratt, an Apostle of the Lord did in 1840.
His trainer is Elder Holbrook , and they are laboring in Aberdeen.
On Monday you can expect an e-mail which will provide you with more information about his companion and area.
Thank you for all that you have done to prepare Elder Hanson to serve the Lord for the next two years.
Alan H. Brown, President Scotland/Ireland Mission
