I received an email today from a member of the ward where Elder Tonini is serving. It said in part:
Just a quick note to tell you what a great job your son is doing here in Moreno Valley on his mission. He is dedicated and focused, but still enjoys his life as a missionary. He has success because he is obedient, hard working and unafraid to share the gospel as well as is a natural leader. He has a strong conviction of the Atonement and its efficacy in the lives of those who truly come unto Christ.
The rest of my day in North Dakota was a little less cold as I thought about what a great missionary our son is becoming.
