Dear Brother and Sister Sweet,
It was a very special experience to personally greet your son, Elder Logan Reuel Sweet at the airport upon his arrival in Tucson. Photos were taken with us which are being sent to you. We were impressed by his great spirit and desire to serve. We are grateful to have him serving here with us until his Visa arrives for Brazil.
From the airport we took him and the other missionaries to the Mormon Battalion Monument in downtown Tucson, where we talked about commitment, and leaving behind all the cares of the world to focus on the work of the Lord. Afterward, we enjoyed a nice luncheon at the mission office where they met the office staff. The Elders and Sisters then received instruction and training from the Assistants to the President, Sister P. and myself. I had the pleasure of interviewing your son and getting to know him personally and to feel his wonderful missionary spirit. Later that evening we dined together and took the opportunity to discuss our purpose as missionaries.
Elder Sweet has been assigned to the North Zone, located in Tucson, Arizona with Elder M. as his companion. If, in case of emergency, you need to contact your son, please call the mission office at 520-577-7076.
As you write to your son, please encourage him to continue to serve faithfully, being completely obedient throughout his mission. We know that he, and the Tucson Mission, will be in your prayers. We also know that the coming months will bring many blessings into your lives by your son’s faithful service and the sacrifice you are making for him to serve the Lord and his fellow men. Thank you very much for having prepared your son to withstand the rigors of missionary life and now to be serving with us here.
May the Lord bless you. We send our love and appreciation.
