"Hi to Elder Hanson's family, Elder Hanson and his companion have been with us this evening teaching. We have been inactive for a long time but we have been working with the Elders for the last few months and it has been amazing. I just need to let you know how thankful and blessed we are to have your son teaching us. He is a remarkable young man. My husband served his mission in the US over 25 years ago and I have been a member for around 22 years. We have 2 sons, Kel is 25 and Carter is 17. Elder Hanson has been in our ward for over 3 months and we need to thank you for the sacrifice your family makes everyday he is with us and not with you his family. He is an outstanding missionary with an amazing spirit. I can't begin to tell you how much he means to us , We look on him as one of our sons and make sure he is fed, warm and safe. Heavenly Father blessed us when he sent him to us. We were at church on Sunday and loved being there. Your son has helped us gain the strength and hope to get our lives back to Heavenly Father. I hope you are all well, you and Elder Hanson's Dad are in our prayers and we are here for your son if he needs anything, We treat him like our own and he has an Irish Family forever here with us, we love him very much. Thank you, may God Bless you, Lots of love Bernie, Russell, Kel and Carter Bryson. Xoxoxo"
