Goodby MTC (CCM)....Hello Santiago

President Jose A. Barreiros

13 January 2015

Dear Brother and Sister Phelps,

Sister Barreiros and I were pleased to welcome your daughter, Sister Phelps, to one of the finest missions in the world, the Chile Santiago West Mission.  She is well and happy, and we are impressed with her enthusiasm for the work.  After greeting her at the MTC and a brief tour of the beautiful city of Santiago, we arrived at our mission home. We had a delicious lunch together. Afterward, we went to the mission office which is the Stake Center of Maipú.  My Assistants and office missionaries then gave her a brief orientation of the mission.  She met her new companion, and they departed for her first area of labor!

Sister Phelps has been assigned to work with Sister Day who will serve as her training companion.  Trainers are chosen for their competence, patience and dedication.  With this letter we are including a photograph taken of your daughter with Sister Barreiros and myself.

Please accept our deep appreciation for raising such a fine daughter.  We feel a genuine fellowship with you in supporting and providing her this opportunity to grow spiritually as she labors to bring souls unto Christ.  It is my prayer that the Lord will inspire us all to sustain her in this challenging assignment.  Please write her frequently, weekly if possible.  Express your love, support, and confidence in her.  You will witness miraculous changes in her life as she engages fully in the service of others.

Being parents ourselves, we understand your desire to occasionally send packages.  For your information, packages sent to your missionary through FedEx often require large duty fees which must be paid by the missionary.  Those sent through Global priority mail, marked missionary supplies and valued less than $100 usually arrive duty free and within 2 weeks.

If you have any questions or if we can assist you in any way, please do not hesitate to write.
