    Congratulations David (: I’m glad to hear that you’re done with this special time in your life, which was to serve as a full-time missionary .. It is great to know that you were able to make such a desicion despite having to leave everything left .. I admire all your love you have to Salvador is really wonderful .. I hope you’re very well at home, you can remain strong and the person you are .. Thank you for showing the world your beautiful example … And encouragement, I have been told that sometimes when I get home it is difficult to get used and all, but have the support of thousands of your fans, and mine! Animo David and CONGRATULATIONS

    Welcome Home David Archuleta. At first I thought 2 years was forever. I didn’t want it to fly by because that would mean I would loss 2 years of my grandchildren’s life. It did fly by & they are still young. Take all the family time you need. I hope I meet you at a Christmas concert this year #DA2014. You are a great role model. Kari was great & did a wonderful job. The sun will never go down on you.

    Wow – the wait was worth it – to see you so incredibly happy; to see those already gorgeous eyes softened even more beautifully by this long labor of love you accomplished. How lucky are we, your fans, to benefit from all that is in your heart! Have been re-reading Cords of Strength as a fun way to prepare for your return – p 176: “The fans stepped up as the much-needed providers of faith and motivation that I would come to rely on as I continued down this new path.” Welcome back to the path of us. Thanks for bringing all those extra goodies in your heart and soul which we can not WAIT to share. However, we did get your memo on “Patience” – hardy-har-har, so we will be so…. Welcome back. Thank you. We love you. xxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

    Welcome home, David! I can’t tell you how much I appreciated your quick vid to let us know you were home.

Congratulations on the completion of what I am sure was an incredible mission experience! Thank you for your service and love for mankind in the name of the Heavenly Father. Take care! ♥

      I want to thank Ma’am Kari for proving to be the best manager ever !! And Dave, I’m blessed to know you served our Lord for full two years and will continue to do so in all small things in life. Your passion for good is a great inspiration for so many !! You will be loved wherever you are and by whoever to meet :’)
