Dear Elder Garner´s Family:
It is my pleasure to inform you of a recent leadership assignment given to your son, Elder Garner. He has been assigned to serve as a district leader in the Mexico Monterrey West Mission. Elder Garner has demonstrated fine leadership qualities and a strong testimony of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
A district leader sets an example for the missionaries in his district through his study of the scriptures and the gospel, obedience, hard work, proselyting skills, and other aspects of missionary work. He carries a full proselyting load in his assigned area and strives to baptize weekly. He supervises, teaches, and inspires the missionaries during district meetings and companion exchanges. He also interviews baptismal candidates. He practices Christ like love, looking after the well-being of missionaries in his district. He demonstrates effective planning, and teaches how to work with local priesthood leaders and members. He also follows up with the missionaries, holding them accountable for their efforts. We depend on our district leaders to motivate the other missionaries and to be good examples, setting their own goals higher and “going the extra mile.” A conscientious and hard-working district leader has an immense impact on the entire zone, in fact it has been said that the success of a mission depends on its district leaders.
Sister McArthur and I appreciate Elder Garner, for his efforts to carry forward the work of the Lord in this new assignment. We express our appreciation to you for having raised such a fine young man. One who loves the gospel, loves the Lord, and serves him with all of his heart, might, mind and strength. It has been my pleasure to get to know him and to work with him in this great and important work of the latter days.
May the Lord bless you while your son is away serving in this marvelous work.
