Dear Brother and Sister Brown,
It was a pleasure for Sister Bubert and me to welcome your daughter, Sister Brown, to the California Long Beach Mission. She arrived on the 4th of June from the Missionary Training Center, bringing with her an enthusiasm that uplifts the entire mission. We welcomed your daughter with lunch at the Mission Office, followed by an orientation session. She was then assigned to her new companion/trainer. By 6:00 p.m. they, as a new companionship, were proselyting.
Our greatest desire is that your daughter will have a successful and spiritual mission, one that will be a blessing eternally. Your encouragement, your prayers, and communication with her are essential. It greatly strengthens your missionary when she receives encouragement from home. The means of communication will be by letters or e-mail. The missionaries love letters and packages. E-mail communication can be used only on P-days.
We are in close contact with your daughter and the zone leaders over her. If you ever have a need for urgent communication with her beyond your weekly exchange of letters or e-mail, please call Sister Bubert or myself.
Very truly yours,
California Long Beach Mission
