Dear Brother and Sister Peterson -
We are so please to have Elder Daniel Lawrence Peterson serving in the Arizona Tempe Mission. He has arrived safely and has been assigned to the Tempe 2nd District and the Tempe Zone. We have complete confidence that your son's companion will do all that is necessary to set Elder Peterson on the path of a great mission.
As we met with our new missionaries yesterday, we stressed the principles of obedience, hard work and worthiness. This mission holds great potential for each missionary assigned. The members are strong and love these great Elders and Sisters. You can be assured they, and we, will do all possible to watch over your son. It is a very special responsibility we feel toward our missionaries. We want to see them enjoy a happy and successful mission.
Our missionaries have permission to Skype or telephone their families twice per year, on Mother's Day and at Christmas. If you need to get a message to your son or if you have any questions, please call us directly. We do want the missionaries to receive letters from home on a regular basis encouraging them in the proselyting efforts.
Thank you for raising a missionary who has a desire to serve the Lord.
President Dean L. Howes
