Dear Brother & Sister Parsons,
We are happy to inform you that your daughter, Sister Ashlea Jennifer Parsons, arrived here in the Australia Perth Mission, and we thank you for sending her to us. We are glad to have her here, and have confidence that she is going to be a fine missionary.
Her companion, Sister Mohring, is a strong and faithful missionary. She will play a vital role in the adjustments and training process your daughter will go through. We encourage you to continue to pray for her success and happiness and to write letters of encouragement and support.
It is our privilege to have her serve with us. It is a great trust that you and Heavenly Father have placed in us to assist her in realizing her full potential as a servant of God. We will assist in every opportunity to help her to grow in the gospel, to bless others and to invite all to come unto Christ. She will truly be an instrument in the hands of the Lord.
May the Lord bless you to experience the joy and satisfaction that comes from having a daughter serving in this sacred responsibility.
