This evening, we received an email from President Perez. It was sent via the assistants to the President, one of whom is Elder Landon Rich, now an Assistant to the President. It was sent to all parents of missionaries in the Peru Lima North Mission. The following are a few excerpts from that letter.
Dear Families of Missionaries in the Peru Lima North Mission,
It is an honor to be able to write you and express our thanks for the service that your sons and daughters are carrying out here in the mission. My wife and I are happy to have so many valiant young men and women that are giving all they’ve got, and even more.
Every six weeks we have the blessing of being with them, to interview them, train them, and visit their houses. It is in this way that we see the sacrifice they make every day with glad hearts, and we know that they are living many spiritual experiences.
Your missionaries know that if they work well and plan intelligently, the Lord will be with them. (D & C 84:88)
We want to again express to you our deepest gratitude; and please know that your missionaries are giving all for you. (D & C 118:3)
With much love,
President and Sister Pérez
President and Wife
