Dear Brother and Sister Eastman,
We are so pleased that Elder Eastman is serving in the Ecuador Quito Mission. We welcome him with all our hearts and know that the special gifts he has been given from our Father in Heaven and talents he has developed will bless the lives of those with and for whom he serves in a unique way only he can offer. His dedicated service will further increase his abilities and character in remarkable ways.
There are currently 251 missionaries in our mission, serving in 13 zones. Elder Eastman has been assigned to serve in Quito in the Santa Ana Zone with Elder Peters as his companion and trainer. Elder Peters is known by the other missionaries as being a great teacher, who loves the people, is patient, a wonderful example, and a worthy representative of Christ .
Attached are several photos including those that show Elder Eastman with his companion; the group of missionaries with whom he arrived; his group with their trainers; and with us.
We know and understand that there is sacrifice on your part both emotionally and financially to support him during this period of full time missionary service, especially since you also have a daughter serving at the same time, and we express our gratitude for your offering to further the work of inviting others to come unto Christ and to receive the blessings of the Gospel in their lives.
With our love and gratitude,
President and Sister Christensen
