10 May 2013Dear Brother and Sister Johnson,I was pleased to welcome your daughter, Sister Johnson, to the Washington Spokane Mission this week. I’m happy to report that she arrived safely. I had the privilege of meeting and associating with her the day of her arrival and note that it is evident that she comes with a great desire to serve Heavenly Father and Jesus Christ. Sister Johnson understands the role of the Holy Ghost in accomplishing the work here in the Washington Spokane Mission and has committed to live worthy of that power.After prayerful consideration, I have called Sister Judd to serve as Sister Johnson’s companion in the Spokane West, Washington area. It is our objective to call only the best missionaries to serve as trainers and I believe that your daughter is in excellent hands. We expect that your missionary will serve in this area for the next 6 to 12 weeks as she begins her mission.I have attached photographs of your missionary and assure you that Sister Mullen and I will love Sister Johnson. Our great desire is that her time here will further establish her on the path of righteousness, as well as bless the many people she will serve.Attached are the new updated recommended guidelines we have for parents. These guidelines are based on many years of accumulated missionary experience, especially those guidelines concerning personal contact with your missionary. Sister Johnson needs your good example. I sincerely request that you consider them for the benefit of your daughter and her fellow missionaries.The mission has a website where you can see what is happening in the mission.
