Elder Davis with President and Sister Leonard  And a MAP of his mission area -- He is in the bottom LEFT corner!!  Hurricane, UT


From Chad:      11-12-2010    
Well, I made it!  Who would have ever thought that I would actually be a missionary in the field!  I thought my 9 weeks in the MTC was never going to end!  Well, I am here in St. George eating breakfast at the President’s home. It is nice to have some REAL food! J
St. George is amazing; I have never seen anything like this place before!  The plane was just a little propeller plan that only had 33 people on it!  I got sick right after we landed.  (Chad has always been sensitive to motion sickness while traveling and especially if he gets overly warm.) 
Well, I am here and ready to WORK!!
I LOVE YOU!    Elder Davis

FROM Keith G. Leonard, Mission President; Utah St. George Mission: 11-12-10

We are delighted to report that your son arrived safely at the mission home with an impressive group of missionaries. After a full morning of orientation, I have personally interviewed each missionary.  I was most impressed with the high level of enthusiasm they have for the work and their desire to teach the gospel.  

Elder Davis is well and in high spirits as he contemplates his new opportunities.  We will be watching over him in all his labors while he is here. To help you support his work here as a full-time missionary, we have enclosed some suggestions about how you can best assist with the success of your missionary. (Basically, family and friends remember that he is not to have any in-person visitors, letters are encouraged, no telephone calls, and if you send any care packages, small items are best.  He is limited to the amount of luggage he can haul around for two years!)  You will find a map showing the location of his first assignment. HURRICANE, Utah – Spanish Speaking Area.

We know that you will experience marvelous blessings as you support your son while he serves the Lord honorably and obediently on his mission. We pray for the Lord’s blessings upon you, your missionary and his other loved ones. 

            Sincerely,             Keith Leonard.
