Dear President Tupou,
I hope the labor of the mission is going well. My wife and I are just wondering if Taylor made it to Tonga safely. We assume so, but would just like to have verification. We are looking forward to his emails and to see how he grows in service while in the field.

Parents of Elder DeSpain,
Your son made it to Tonga safe and sound smiling and happy. He got in Tuesday night (Monday for you) and then went and had breakfast with the president the following morning. They then went and had their meetings and met their new companions. Elder DeSpain got an excellent trainer who works hard. I will let him tell you the rest when he has his P-day.
I you have any questions feel free to email and we will do our best to answer them.
