Dear Elder Galvan - would you forward this on to your parents? Thank you! Hermana Jackson
Dear Parents of Elder Galvan,
We welcomed your son into our mission Tuesday morning. We brought him to the Mission Home and fed him lunch. We gave him an overview of the mission and some of the rules and expectations, and spent most of the day with him. He was excited, and seemed ready to get to work.
Later that afternoon, we had a meeting at the Stake Center in Madrid on Temple Square, and met with his trainer to discuss the new 12 week training program. During this 12 week period, your son will have an extra hour of companion study each day, and will be given specific things that he must report to the Mission President. We know that this is an inspired program, and will help to make missionaries better teachers and better followers of Christ. Please encourage your son in this program. It will help him develop tools that will help him to have a successful mission, and a more successful and fulfilling life after his mission.
Elder Galvan has been assigned to the area of Leganés. He will serve with Elder Parkinson, who is from Layton, Utah, and Elder Kunz, who is from Houston, Texas. They are happy, obedient missionaries, who will be good first companions for your son.
Please send any letters or packages to the Mission Office for the duration of his mission. We have such a large mission area and mail times are very unpredictable, so that if he gets transferred while the mail is in transit it is very difficult to track him down. Don’t forget to put his first name on the package!

Our Preparation Day is on Monday. Elder Galvan is instructed to email his immediate family every week. We look forward to getting to know him and working along side him in this great work here in the Spain, Madrid Mission. We can tell he will be a great missionary. Thank you for sharing him with us! We already love him.
