Returning With Honor


In FIVE DAYS Elder Gale will be home. After serving for two years in the
 California, Sacramento Hmong Mission. 
FIVE DAYS! 
It feels like Christmas.
We received his "Going Home" letter from his mission president--his words are a sweet
culminating affirmation of his faithful service:
"It is a great personal pleasure to write this letter upon the approaching release of Elder Gale from extraordinary service in our Mission. Elder Gale has been a truly wonderful missionary here. He has been diligent, faithful and very effective in every responsibility and assignment. As an indication of his dedication and testimony of this work I would like to quote from a talk he prepared for a zone conference. He said, "I know there is no other way to see success in God's work except to do it God's way. I bear my testimony that we are engaged in the most important work on the earth, spreading the true gospel of Jesus Christ and saving souls." These two sentences summarize well how Elder Gale has approached his missionary service to his Heavenly Father. 
Elder Gale has a special love for the Hmong people and cares deeply for them and their welfare. Elder Gale has truly blessed the lives of many, many in the Hmong community. He will forever be remembered fondly and reverently by the Hmong people."

Like Christmas.

What a beautiful tribute to your son! I read the letter to my family, but it wasn't easy because I kept crying.
