April 2, 2014 Elder Thom arrived in the mission. He has spent the last two weeks learning Preach My Gospel at the MTC in England. As Elder Thom was born and raised in Surinam and then moved to the United States. Because he is a native Dutch speaker, his MTC training was in England.
Welcome Elder Thom
Elder Thom will be serving in Sliedrecht with Elder Goff as companion and trainer.
Welcome Elder Thom. You have friends in America and Surinam. Now you have 160 missionary friends in Belgium and Netherlands. You will make hundreds more with the members in this mission and the many investigators you will teach and grow to love.
God's Army is unbelievable. It is President's and my pleasure to serve shoulder to shoulder with these remarkable young missionaries.
