Subject: Your missionaries arrived safely!!
Good afternoon families!!
This is Sister J[...], Mission President's wife in the great Utah Ogden Mission! Your missionaries arrived safely on Tuesday and yesterday went out into the field with their trainers. They are a great group, thank you for terrific sons who will make great missionaries.
When President Faust called us, he told us we would not be judged on the number of conversions we had in the mission, but on the men and women our missionaries will be in twenty years time. If you think about it, they will probably be preparing their own sons to go on missions at that time--quite an interesting assignment/challenge!! We take it very seriously and are very involved with our missionaries although we never attempt to take your place. We love them dearly and will do all in our power to help them reach their individual divine potential.
Again, thank you for preparing your sons so well!!
