Welcoming Elder Carroll

We received this letter from Landon's mission president:

March 27, 2014

We are very pleased to welcome your son, Elder Landon James Carroll, to the North Carolina Raleigh Mission. As we spent time with him in the Mission Home and in orientation meetings, we felt his spirit and his heart. He is ready to do the Lord’s work here. He has been assigned to the Fayetteville West Zone of the mission, serving in Pinehurst Spanish Ward in North Carolina. His companion is Elder Sessions Lowham from Pinedale, Wyoming.

We encourage you to write positive, uplifting e-mail and letters to your missionary every week. These letters give him the support and strength he will need in this challenging, but rewarding, work. Please send mail directly to his apartment address. He will keep you updated as to his current address. All mail will be forwarded to him if by chance he misses it during a transfer. The mission office can always be used as a backup address. This address is as follows:

Elder Landon James Carroll
North Carolina Raleigh Mission
6508 Falls of Neuse #100
Raleigh NC 27615-6845

Your missionary’s preparation day is Monday. This is the day when he can read and write emails. Time to write emails is often limited. His priorities are to write to you and to write his weekly letter to me. He will use the same address used in the MTC.

Please keep the mission office updated with a change of mailing address as well as email address as we continue to correspond with you. The email address that you are receiving this email from is not my personal email. If you need to communicate directly with me on a personal or private matter, please contact the office at this email address or at 555-5555 and let them know you need to communicate with me. They will make sure that I get your message.

One final note: We recognize that occasionally, family members and friends of your missionary will be in North Carolina for different reasons. The Church has asked that they do not visit him nor request permission to visit him; this is disruptive and, oftentimes, hard on the missionary.

Sister Bernhisel and I know that this is the work of the Lord. We love the missionaries and are grateful to be able to work with your son. If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us.

With our love,

Marc A. Bernhisel, President
North Carolina Raleigh Mission
