Dear Family of Elder Kearl,
We are happy to let you know that your son arrived safely today as a missionary in the Philippines Cauayan Mission. After his arrival we had a welcome luncheon and orientation meeting. I also had the opportunity to have a wonderful interview with him before he met his prayerfully selected companion and trainer.
Elder Kearl will be serving in the Bambang Zone. Enclosed is a map on which we have marked the zone of his first proselyting area. He will be working with Elder Briones who will carefully train and introduce Elder Kearl to missionary work in the field. We encourage you to write your son every week. Please share positive, uplifting messages that will support and help him stay focused on this sacred work. Such contact from home can build a great foundation for a successful mission.
This is a wonderful mission and we are grateful to have Elder Kearl here. The new missionaries always bring with them an exciting and special spirit. Please know that we will watch over him with great concern. We have been praying for him for several months now and have looked forward to serving together. We know that with your support and encouragement, he will progress and strengthen beyond your expectations and develop a great love for his fellow missionaries and the precious people he will serve, teach, and bless.
May the Lord bless you for all you have done to help Elder Kearl prepare for this mission. If you have any concerns, please do not hesitate to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With warmest regards,
President C Russell Hiatt
Sister Sulet Hiatt
