A Letter From the Mission President
Brother and Sister Anderson,
Sister Schwartz and I are pleased to welcome your son, Elder Nikora Philip Anderson, who has been called to serve with us in the Germany Frankfurt Mission. His call comes from a prophet of God and we are grateful for the preparation your son has made to receive this call.
Please know that Sister Schwartz and I love our missionaries. During their 6 week cycles, I stay close to the missionaries through their weekly email letter that they send to me sharing their experiences, their missionary activities from the past week, things they have learned, miracles they have seen and how their testimonies are being strengthened. I also have personal interviews with each missionary and we meet with them at regularly held Zone Conferences and other Training Meetings. We also encourage them to call us with any medical concerns or questions.
Upon Elder Anderson’s arrival, we will have an orientation for all our new missionaries to assist them in a smooth transition. This orientation will include instructions on handling their finances, processing their legal forms and orienting them to the driving laws of the country. I will also have the opportunity to conduct our first interview and get to know Elder Anderson a little better. We will enjoy dinner together at the mission home and the next morning, each new missionary will be assigned to their companion who will serve as their “Trainer” and they then travel to their first assignment area.
In our desire to do all we can for Elder Anderson we request the following items from you:
I know that our Heavenly Father will continue to bless you as you support your missionary in this very important work. We look forward to welcoming Elder Anderson to the Germany Frankfurt Mission.
With Warm Regards,
Lehi K. Schwartz
President, Germany Frankfurt Mission
