We wanted to write to Elder Robison's family and let you know we are missing him in Mindoro. We sent him on the plane Friday to Manila, where he will serve in his new area. We have been in Mindoro, San Jose, for 3 weeks, but grew to love and appreciate his Leadership. As a Zone leader he was dedicated and always worked hard. We were very impressed with his willingness to serve the Lord. The other missionaries loved being around him, and learned so much from him. Now he will be a Training Elder, which will help many other missionaries in his new area.
You can be proud that your son has a strong testimony, and good heart, and serves well. Like our Mission President says, " We want the missionaries not to go on a mission, BUT BE MISSIONARIES for the Church" He has done that well.
Now that we as a Senior couple have been transferred to Mindoro, we probably will not see him again before he goes home, but we can tell you he will Serve With Honor as he completes his Mission here in the Philippines!
President Barlow is from Jerome Idaho, and knows that great missionaries come from Idaho! Maybe someday we can see him again, as we do have family in Idaho, and we now live in Ogden Utah. We wanted his family to know how much good he has done as he has served in Mindoro. You can be proud that he has been a great Missionary here in the Philippines.
Best Wishes to his family,
President Brent Barlow and Sister Barlow
