What a delightful young man you have entrusted in our care. His companion is Elder Lewis who is now training your son. He will compliment your son's talents. We spoke with them today and they are reaching their goals and are very happy. There is nothing that makes a missionary happier than when he or she is being strictly obedient and making their goals a reality. We expect a lot from our missionaries just like we did with our own children, but we also extend love and compassion to each of them. We extend to you our thanks for bringing up such a fine young man. We look forward to getting to know him better as the months go by. If at any time you feel concerned about your son please feel free to call the mission office here in Argentina. We want this mission experience to bless the lives of the entire Smith family. We know the Lord will bless your family during the next 22 months because of all the sacrifices being made. May we also add that we have a personal testimony of the strength of a mother's prayer. We believe that the Lord answers those prayers with impressions. We encourage you to empower him with your enthusiasm and belief in him. We know a mission is hard, but we know that he can accomplish this hard thing and it will allow him to understand in a small way the sacrifices that have been made by those who have come before him and paved the way in the church.
Thank you again for sending us a wonderful missionary with a strong testimony.
