Week 6: Letter from Elder Clarke

Here is a very sweet letter that Jeffrey's mother received in the mail from Elder Clarke:
                                                                                                                                                                  21 de Mayo, 2013
Dear Sis. Bromley,
                 This is Elder Clarke, your son's companion here at the MTC. I just wanted to write you a letter to thank you personally for the amazing boy you have raised - he is an incredible Elder and representative of Jesus Christ. I could not be more grateful to have him as a companion! I know with all my heart that the Lord has a hand in the choosing of companionships, and I have benefited greatly from this one.
         Elder Bromley is an absolute JOY to be around. Some days are hard here, no doubt, but your son always brightens up my day, and many others' as well. He has such a fun and joking personality at times and yet brings the spirit in the room so strongly when he bears his testimony at what's most important to him. I know and have witnessed the depth of his testimony, and you should be proud. He is everybody's favorite here! I have definitely learned how to have fun on a daily basis with him. He loves to imitate the campus animals (small birds, etc) and what they are saying when they are chirping - it's pretty hilarious. :)
               He told me so much of how you are an amazing woman, and don't doubt it in the least. Thank you for all the good that you do - it has a widespread effect on many people; even me, and we've have not met before. But thank you; Jeff has made a lasting impression on me for my mission. Thank Belle too! She's always sending sweet and funny notes, and you have no idea how much it cheers him up, and how he loves it. It's his favorite thing in the world to hear from you both!
               I am very glad Elder Bromley and I get to go to Oregon together - it will be a wonderful experience and I'm excited. I surely hope we'll meet up again in Peru too.
              Thank you for everything again! Just letting you know (again) how amazing your son is, and you should be proud.

                     Elder David Kenneth Clarke
