Letter from Anthony's Mission President
Dear Brother and Sister Whetten:
We are happy to send the exciting news that after weeks of preparation in the Santiago MTC, Elder Whetten has arrived safely with his group of fellow missionaries to the Chile Santiago South Mission. They were transported from the MTC to the Mission Office where they participated in a New Missionary Orientation with President Cook and Sister Cook, the Assistants to the President and the Office Staff. After enjoying lunch with us, they were introduced to their trainers and transported their assigned areas.
Your son has been assigned as a junior companion to Elder Turley, from, Holbrook, Arizona. Elder Turley is an exceptional missionary, selected by President Cook to guide your missionary through the critical training period of his mission. They are assigned to labor in the Capitán Ávalos.
You can expect to hear from Elder Whetten by email every preparation day which is each Wednesday. We trust that you will also write to Elder Whetten on a weekly basis. Your positive messages of support and love will be a great source of strength and encouragement while he serves. To send a letter or a package, please use the following address:
Chile Santiago South Mission
Apartado Postal No. 544
San Bernardo, Chile
We thank you for all that you have done to help prepare Elder Whetten to faithfully serve a full time mission. We know that your family will be blessed for his sacrifice and commitment to serve the Lord.
Thank you for entrusting your missionary to the Lord and to us. We look forward to getting to know him well over the next two years as we labor together. We want you to know that we will love and watch over him while he is in our care. Please feel free to communicate with us at any time throughout your missionary’s service, with any concerns that you may have.
President David L. Cook
