(Letter from Paraguay Asuncion Mission President)
Dear Family of Elder Olson,
We are so happy that your son has joined us here in the Paraguay Asuncion North mission. I am a little tardy getting this off to you. We know that as he commits to work hard and be obedient to mission rules, and continues to study and seek the guidance of the Holy Ghost, he will have a great experience on his mission. He will grow to love the people, he will be willing to pass through difficulties, and he will come to know and love his Savior in a more profound way than he has ever known. His first day here, we were able to give all the incoming missionaries some training on staying healthy, finances, mail, etc. We were able to share some of the history of the Church here in Paraguay, go to the temple grounds, and participate in a wonderful testimony meeting at our home with all the new missionaries arriving that day. Your son was interviewed and met his trainer, Elder Bridge who was specially chosen for him. He has been trained to help your son in all the skills he will need to be a good missionary. We hope you will enjoy these pictures that we are attaching. We already love your son! Thank you for raising such a fine young man who is so willing to serve his Father in Heaven and be a blessing to the people here and to his fellow missionaries. We truly pray for them every day and are committed to working diligently to help them in whatever they need to be happy and successful. May the Lord bless you and your son for the sacrifices, the faith, and the love that you are extending to the people here. Thank you for all of your support.
With much love,
President and Sister Evans
