Hello! This is Katie, Eliza’s mom. I am a little late getting this week’s letter posted. We were out of internet coverage last week while we were on a cruise. It was a great experience to see Alaska and Canada. We highly recommend it! Celebrity cruise line was terrific! We will have two letters this week to enjoy. I want to thank all of you who have been following Eliza’s journey. She is feeling supported and loved. Thanks for all the emails and letters that have been sent. It means so much to me that you all love and care for her.
We got a letter this week from Eliza’s mission president, President Douglas Richardson, in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. He requested that those that are supporting her contact her often. He also said “In order for a missionary to be successful, she must be focused solely on her missionary activities. Any news, letters, etc. from home that distracts her attention from her missionary efforts will be disruptive to her work. Accordingly, to the extent possible, I suggest that all of your letters be positive, upbeat and spiritual and, to the extent possible, that discussions of bad news, disappointments, discouraging items, etc. be avoided.”
If you would like to send Eliza a letter to meet her when she arrives in Florida, please send your letter to: Sister Eliza Burdett
7951 SW 6th Street, Suite 110
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33324-3211
We have been told that this is the best address to send mail to in Florida. They will forward her mail directly to her area from the mission home.
Thanks for your love and friendship, Katie
