We want you to know that your sons and daughters have arrived safely to the
California Riverside Mission! We are thrilled to have them! What a great
group of outstanding missionaries! They have been very highly recommended
by each bishop and stake president. Every one of them has attended a year
or more of college--which is the first time we have ever had such a group!
We had the opportunity to hear their beautiful testimonies last evening and
were very touched by their strength and spirit.
We will try to email you again later today and let you know where they will
be serving within the mission and who their companion is. We actually
already know that Sister Robinette will be serving in Riverside (Woodcrest
Ward) with Sister Appleby, who is from Florida and is about half way through
her service here. Sister Lusk will be serving in Temecula with Sister
Newman who has been here with us for three months, but has served on Temple
Square for approximately nine months previous to coming to Riverside. She
will serve here another five weeks, then return to Temple Square.
We send you our love and thanks for sending such great missionaries!
Sincerely, President Mel and Sister Linda Reeves
