"Although you are missing your son, be confident that he is being well cared for and loved while he is away from you. He is part of our mission family and we love him all ready."

Dear Brother & Sister Forshee,
I am writing to let you know that Elder Forshee arrived safely on Wednesday in Bulgaria after a long and tiring trip.  He was brought to the Mission Home where a light lunch was served to the newly arrived missionaries.  After what seemed like endless paperwork was completed, interviews with the Mission President, President Wilstead, were conducted.  Then he was taken on excursion to a local park for a brief introduction to Bulgaria and an opportunity to talk with the people.
A pair of local sisters prepared a delicious Bulgarian dinner for the new arrivals. There was a testimony meeting held for them and then they were taken to their accommodations for the night.  It will be a memorable day for him, once he recovers from jet lag.
On Thursday Elder Forshee attended orientation and training meetings then he departed after a lunching on Domino's pizza with his new companion, Elder Barber, for their assignment in Stara Zagora.
I am enclosing a picture that was taken at dinner with President and Sister Wilstead on their first evening together.  Although you are missing your son, be confident that he is being well cared for and loved while he is away from you.  He is part of our mission family and we love him all ready.
Thank you for all you do to support Elder Forshee in his service to the Lord.
With warm regards,
Sister Segeberg
Bulgaria Sofia Mission

  1. Dear Sister/Daughter Forshee -- thank you as always for keeping all of us in touch with Nick through you. Great photo of Nick. Looks like he has a new hair cut, one that should last awhile!
