Welcome to Concepcion

Today we received this email with pictures from Jake's mission president:

Dear Brother and Sister Parker,
Sister Arrington and I had the great pleasure of welcoming Elder Jacob Terry Parker to the Chile Concepción Mission.  After we met him at the airport when he arrived, we enjoyed lunch together with the other missionaries.  We held an orientation and testimony meeting and Parker met his new companion, Elder Chase Kelly Hartvigsen, who will train him to be a missionary. They will be laboring in the District of Talcahuano Sur 1 and located in the Zone of Talcuhuano Sur.
A mission is a wonderful experience filled with challenge and success that strengthens the testimony and spirituality of each missionary. The greatest support you as a family can give your missionary during his service as a missionary is that of uplifting letters.  Missionaries look forward with great anticipation to each letter from home.  In addition to using email, you can send packages and letters to our address.  The U.S. Postal Service and the Correos de Chile do a good job of delivering packages.
Elder Jacob Terry Parker
Misión Chile Concepción
Castellon 1063 Oficina Norte
Casilla 2210
Concepción, Chile
You may also send letters (and only letters taped shut, no envelopes via the ¨Pouch¨):
Elder Jacob Terry Parker
Misión Chile Concepción

Salt Lake City, UT 84130-0150
We encourage each of our missionaries to write to their parents each week.  Please let me know if a reminder to him is needed. You may contact us using e-mail at
We invite you to look at our blog:
It will be our privilege to work closely with Elder Parker as he serves here in Chile.  We are blessed to have him join us in this mission and know that he will have many life changing experiences as he proclaims the gospel of Jesus Christ.  Thank you for your support and for sharing your son with us.
Photos and a map of the mission are attached to this email.
