Dear Brother and Sister Cardon,
It was wonderful to have your missionary arrive! We are grateful to have her as a full-time missionary in the New Mexico Farmington Mission.
I have had a personal interview with her to get acquainted. I felt her spirit as she bore her testimony. She met her trainer. We select trainers that we believe are the most obedient, hard-working and most skilled missionaries. We talked about how blessings come by obediently working in unity. She left the mission office with a big smile and great anticipation.
Experience shows that once new missionaries become immersed in daily missionary work, feelings of homesickness dissipate and they begin to feel the warmth of the Holy Ghost. You and your missionary will be blessed as your communication with her helps her focus on her purpose - to invite others to come unto Christ. As a reminder, it is against Church policy for full-time missionaries to have visits from family members, relatives, and friends except a phone call on Mother's Day and Christmas for 30-40 minutes.
Enclosed is a picture of Sister Cardon and her trainer along with Sister Batt and me. Rest assured that next to our own family, our most important responsibility is to love, watch over, and strengthen our missionaries. May the Lord bless you with the knowledge that your missionary is well card for as she serves the Lord.
with our love,
Doyle L Batt
