His scheduled release date is 16 Apr 2014 . We are contacting you now to obtain information required by the Church Travel Office so the necessary travel plans may be completed three months prior to the scheduled release date. > > > Missionaries should travel directly home from their missions. The Church discourages parents from picking up their missionary. However, if they do request this privilege, there are specific guidelines to follow. If you would like to request the privilege of picking up your missionary, please let us know and we will provide the required guidelines. > > The stake president releases returning missionaries from their mission service and gives them the release certificate and related letters he receives from the mission president. This is normally the president of the stake from which the missionary was called, unless the family has moved or changed stakes. If you have moved or changed stakes, please let us know the name of your stake. This will allow your missionary's certificate of release and related correspondence from us to be available to your stake president at the time of release. > > During his time in the mission field, your missionary has strengthened his gospel knowledge, while significantly improving his teaching skills. These last few months are unquestionably the most effective time of missionary service. please continue to provide your positive encouragement and support to diligently preach the restored gospel of Jesus Christ through the release date. If possible, please refrain from discussing his travel plans home. We will provide this information to him at the appropriate time. > > > We greatly appreciate your faith, prayers and support of Elder Wilson in assisting our Father in Heaven in His glorious work.
