I’m Off to Serve

12 Jul 2022

Dear Brother and Sister Nef,

It was wonderful to have your missionary finally arrive! We are grateful to have Elder Nef as a full-time missionary in the New Mexico Farmington Mission.

I have had a personal interview with him to get acquainted. I felt his spirit as he bore his testimony. He met his trainer. We select trainers that we believe are the most obedient, hard-working and most skilled missionaries. We talked about how blessings come by obediently working in unity. He left the mission office with a big smile and great anticipation.

Experience shows that once new missionaries become immersed in daily missionary work, feelings of homesickness dissipate, and they begin to feel the warmth of the Holy Ghost. You and your missionary will be blessed as your communication with him helps him focus on the purpose of missionary work – to invite others to come unto Christ. As a reminder, it is against Church policy for full-time missionaries to have visits from family members, relatives, and friends.

Enclosed is a picture of Elder Nef and his trainer, Elder Anderson, along with Sister McNabb and me. Rest assured that next to our own family, our most important responsibility is to love, watch over, and strengthen our missionaries. May the Lord bless you with the knowledge that your missionary is well cared for as he serves the Lord.

With our love,

William B. McNabb
New Mexico Farmington Mission President
