Dear Brother and Sister Tonini,
Sister Young and I extend our gratitude for Elder Jacob Tonini's call to the Oregon Eugene Mission. We are excited to receive your missionary. We will warmly welcome your missionary and prayerfully select a senior companion who has been prepared to help your missionary become successful.
Our mission is focused on Preach My Gospel. The more your missionary understands the principles inside Preach My Gospel, the better prepared your missionary will be.
Preach My Gospel is full of precious gems; valuable truths. One such diamond is found on page two:
"As your understanding of the Atonement of Jesus Christ grows, your desire to share the gospel will increase."
Help your missionary to begin now, praying for an increased understanding and love for the Atonement. Your missionary will grow to love the Savior to such an extent that he will want to share the gospel with every person in the state of Oregon.
Sister Young and I have been blessed with an extra measure of love for our missionaries, even before they arrive in the field. We see them as the Lord sees them:
"And they were all young men (women), and they were exceedingly valiant for courage, and aslo for strenght and activity; but behold, this was not all - they were men (women) who were true at all times in whatsoever thing they were entrusted." (Alma 53:20)
We gladly accept the trust placed upon us. We will do everything in our power to make sure your missionary is safe, secure, and productive.
/s/ Mark A. Young
