Dear Brother & Sister Webster,
Sister Samuelian and I were so pleased to greet your missionary at the Portland airport! Upon their arrival we had the opportunity to take them by the beautiful Portland Temple. (Attached you will find a photo of your newly arrived missionary at the Temple!) Your missionary may have the opportunity to attend the Portland Temple while here serving the Lord.
Shortly following his arrival, I had the opportunity to interview your missionary and find out more about him. He is most impressive and will be a real asset to the Oregon Salem Mission! Out of all the assignments a Mission President has, none are taken more seriously than the assignment of their first companion and trainer. After careful thought, consideration and inspiration from our Heavenly Father, your missionary has been assigned to labor in the Keizer, Oregon Spanish Branch. His trainer is Elder Bensen from Clearfield Utah, a seasoned and well respected missionary.
You can send all letters or packages for your missionary to the Mission office listed below. Of course we encourage you to correspond weekly via e-mail with your missionary. We don't know how long your son will be with us as he awaits his Visa, but know he will be loved, cherished and engaged in this great work while he is here.

We thank you once again for sending your missionary to us. We will take good care of him and know the sacred trust you place in ourselves and in the Lord.
President Michael Samuelian
