Elder Moser arrives in Chile

Letter from Jared

Hello Mom and Dad!  I'm here in Chile! I guess they will scan this and send it to you.  I made it here great. The flight was really long and didn't get much sleep!  So I'm pretty tired but it is all good.  We got to talk to Elder Bednar in the Santiago Airport so that was fun and we also saw Elder Oaks and talked to him.  We get to hear from Elder Bednar tonight so that should be good!  Hey, and I can't understand a thing when I hear a Chilean speak!  So hopefully that gets better soon!  But Chile is great!  A lot of it looks really poor so it should be fun teaching all those people!  I'm pretty excited!  We have just been at the mission home all day receiving instructions and such.  There are definitely a lot of dogs here so that should be interesting!  It sounds like all the people are really nice here and I'm excited to get out and meet some of them!  Hopefully I can speak to them a little bit!  I get to meet my companion tonight so that should be good!  I think they will send a picture of us with this.  Well I hope you guys are doing good!  Chile is great! 
Love, Elder Moser

E-mail from President King:

Dear Brother and Sister Moser,

Sister King and I were pleased to welcome your son, Elder Moser, to one of the finest missions in the world, the Chile Santiago West Mission.  He is well and happy, and we are impressed with his enthusiasm for the work.  After greeting him at the airport and a brief tour of the beautiful city of Santiago, we arrived at our mission home. I interviewed your son and gave him a priesthood blessing.  My Assistants and office missionaries then gave him a brief orientation to the mission.  We had a delicious lunch together, he met his new companion, and that afternoon he left the mission home and departed for his first area of labor.

Elder Moser has been assigned to work with Elder Myres, who will serve as his training companion.  Trainers are chosen for their competence, patience and dedication, and are selected after prayerful consideration.  With this letter we are including a photograph taken of your son and his new companion with Sister King and myself.

Please accept our deep appreciation for raising such a fine son.  We feel a genuine fellowship with you in supporting and providing him this opportunity to grow spiritually as he labors to bring souls unto Christ.  It is my prayer that the Lord will inspire us all to sustain him in this challenging assignment.  Please write him frequently, weekly if possible.  Express your love, support, and confidence in him.  You will witness miraculous changes in his life as he engages fully in the service of others.

Being parents ourselves, we understand your desire to occasionally send packages.  For your information, packages sent to your missionary through FedEx often require large duty fees which must be paid by the missionary.  Those sent through Global priority mail, marked missionary supplies and valued less than $100 usually arrive duty free and within 2 weeks.

If you have any questions or if we can assist you in any way, please do not hesitate to write.


President Richard W. King
Chile Santiago West Mission
