Letter From President & Hermana Arrington - Proof that Jade made it to Chile! :)

Area: Andalien B
Companion: Elder Incil

Sister Arrington, Elder Jade Smoot, & President Arrington
Assigned to serve in Andalien B in the Andalien Zone.  Elder Incil is his trainer.

Dear Brother and Sister Smoot,

Sister Arrington and I had the great pleasure of welcoming your son, Elder Smoot, to the Chile Concepción Mission. After we met him at the airport when he arrived on Tuesday, we enjoyed lunch together with the other new missionaries.  Afterwards, we held an orientation and testimony meeting, and Elder Smoot met his first companion, Elder Incil, who will train him to be a missionary. They will be laboring in the sector of Andalien B and located in the zone of Andalien.           

A mission is a wonderful experience filled with challenge and success that strengthens the testimony and spirituality of each missionary. The greatest support you as a family can give your son during his time as a missionary is that of uplifting letters. Missionaries look forward with great anticipation to each letter from home. In addition to using email, you can send packages and letters to our address. The U.S. Postal Service and the Correos de Chile do a good job of delivering mail and packages.  Please do not send anything Fedex , DHL or any other  private company.

We encourage each of our missionaries to write to their parents each week. Please let me know if a reminder to him is needed. You may contact us at (email address of mission president removed).

It will be our privilege to work closely with Elder Smoot as he serves here in Chile.  We are blessed to have him join us in this mission and know that he will have many life changing experiences as he proclaims the gospel of Jesus Christ. Thank you for your support and for sharing your son with us.
