Dear Arnold Family,
It was a great pleasure to welcome your daughter to our mission. She arrived in good health, is enthusiastic, and anxious to begin missionary work here in the Chile Santiago North mission. I have interviewed her carefully and find her well prepared, with a strong testimony, and a good beginning foundation in the Spanish language. I feel honored to be her mission president and know that the Lord has prepared many people here to receive the testimony of the restoration she bears. Sister May and I will treat her as our own daughter.
Your daughter will look forward to your weekly letters of encouragement and support. E-mail is a great way to communicate with her as she communicates with me by e-mail weekly as well. If you prefer to send letters, the church pouch system is the safest method. The pouch mail comes several times per week and is delivered to the mission office, where we either carry it ourselves, or send it with missionaries to your daughter as soon as possible. You can also send letters and packages directly to the mission office. The address of our mission office is as follows.
Sister Amy Melissa Arnold
Misión Chile Santiago Norte
Forestal 2680, Oficina 32 Cajita 18
Thank you for all you have done to prepare your daughter for her mission. Sister May and I will do everything in our power to help her have a wonderful and productive mission.
Michael E. May
President, Chile Santiago North Mission
