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 zone leader in the Mexico Monterrey West Mission. Elder Garner has been a wonderful example, demonstrating fine leadership qualities and a strong testimony of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
A zone leader has a great opportunity to build the kingdom of God by serving, helping, and teaching the other missionaries. A zone leader sets an example for the missionaries in his zone though his obedience, hard work; proselyting skills, study of the scriptures and the gospel, 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 zone meetings, companionship exchanges, and visits to district meetings. He demonstrates effective planning and teaches how to work with local priesthood leaders and members. He also holds the missionaries accountable for their proselyting efforts. He works with the district leaders and other missionaries, teaching proselyting techniques, planning zone activities, and keeping the missionaries in his zone supplied with the materials they need. He reports pertinent mission data, successes, and problems directly to the mission president, and receives training from the President in zone leader councils. Our zone leaders are essential to the success of our mission. I trust that Elder Garner will carry on in this assignment as he has in others, working diligently and showing great faith.
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.
