Three days after arriving in the mission field on June 30, 2012, President and Sister Mullen and three of their children traveled to various locations and met with the missionaries.
Afterwards, part of Pres. Mullen’s weekly email said, “We have learned why this is the greatest mission in the Church – it’s because we have the greatest missionaries and the greatest members! We have loved meeting each of you. Your love and testimony have been uplifting and invigorating.
Thank for welcoming us to the mission with open arms. As we have met with you collectively and individually, we are impressed with your dedication and testimonies. We have laughed with you, cried with you, worked with your, prayed for you, taught you, and been taught by you. As Sister Mullen says: “It has been a whirlwind” but it has been a wonderful whirlwind!”
