Dear Brother and Sister Legg,
We were so delighted to meet your son as he arrived in our mission on Monday and to be able to spend time orienting him to this new phase of his service. On Tuesday morning we had our transfer meeting which included instructions to the missionaries and assignments to their first companion and area of service. Following the meeting, Elder Legg and his companion traveled to Dublin, Georgia to his first assignment.
We know he will prosper here in the days ahead and assure you that we will do everything in our power to help him find joy in his service and success in his labors. Your weekly emails will do much to support Elder Legg as he labors in this wonderful work. Elder Legg will be able to email home on Preparation Day which is each Monday. Just a reminder, when Monday happens to fall on a national holiday, those who use the public libraries will not have access to a computer, therefore, they usually email on Tuesday instead.
Your missionary is about to make an eternal difference in the lives of others. We hope you will be encouraged and comforted by this quote from President Lorenzo Snow. “There is no mortal man that is so much interested in the success of an elder when he is preaching the Gospel as the Lord that sent him to preach to the people who are the Lord’s children” (Millenial Star, July 16, 1894, p. 451)
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all you have done to prepare Elder Legg to faithfully serve a mission. We look forward to getting to know him as we serve our Heavenly Father here in the Georgia Macon Mission.
Attached please find a photo of Elder Legg with Sister Cottle and me. We are extremely pleased to have your son here serving with us.
With great appreciation and love,
President and Sister Cottle
Georgia Macon Mission
