President & Sister Mullen welcome Elder Pennington
We are so grateful to have Elder Nathan Charles Pennington join us here in the California Riverside Mission! It was exciting to meet him at the airport. I had the opportunity to interview your missionary and we were able to hear his testimony before having dinner together. We have been impressed with his testimony and desire to serve. It has been a privilege to get to know him.
Elder Pennington is now hard at work in his new area, the JURUPA Zone with his companion Elder Stetson Saul Heelis.

Preparation day is Monday; most missionaries choose to email their family on that day. We encourage you to write or email weekly as well. Thank you for keeping your letters positive, uplifting and encouraging your son to work hard and take advantage of the time spent here in doing the work of the Lord.

As we visited with your son this is what he said about his family: "They are the best, and we love each other. I  remember singing’ I hope they call me on a mission’ when I was little. I am excited that I am finally here. I am anxious to see the light of Christ in people’s eyes."
We look forward to a wonderful experience together with your missionary.  Thank you for preparing one worthy to serve.  May God continue to bless you.
John H. Mullen, President
