We received this letter from Kent's Mission Pres. Today:
Dear Brother and Sister Masulonis,
Sister Cottrell and I are very pleased to welcome your son, Elder Masulonis, to the North Carolina Raleigh Mission. As we spent time with him in the mission home and in orientation meetings, we felt his warm and humble spirit. He have been assigned to the Kinston Zone of the mission, serving in Morehead City, North Carolina. His companion is Elder Loftin from Spanish Fork, UT. We encourage you to write positieve, uplifting letters to your missionary every week. These letters will give him the support and strength he will need in this challenging, but rewarding work.
Occasionally, family members and friends of your missionary will be in North Carolina for different reasons. We ask that they do not visit him or request permission to visit him as it would be disruptive and difficult on the missionary.
Sister Cotterell and I know that this is the work of the Lord. W love the missionaries and are grateful to be able to work with your son.
Dirk A. Cotterell, President.
