Dear Brother and Sister Howell,
We are so grateful to have Sister Deryk Blair Howell join us here in the California Riverside Mission! It was exciting to meet her at the airport. I had the opportunity to interview your missionary and we were able to hear her testimony before having dinner together. We have been impressed with her testimony and desire to serve. It has been a privilege to get to know her.
Sister Howell is now hard at work in her new area, the MORENO VALLEY Zone with her companion Sister A_____ D_____.
As we visited with your daughter this is what she said about her family: “I’d say they’re the BEST family ever. They’re crazy funny and we are nearly always laughing at something someone has done/said.”
We look forward to a wonderful experience together with your missionary. Thank you for preparing one worthy to serve. May God continue to bless you.
Paul F. Smart, President
