Dear Krause Family,
We were delighted to welcome your son, Elder Krause, to the Brazil Salvador Mission on Tuesday, August 8. We can report that he looked great and had a smile on his face as we greeted him at the airport. We spent a wonderful afternoon together with him and our other new missionaries visiting over a Bahian lunch. Afterwards we spent a few hours giving them important training and finally introduced them to their new companions who had been excitedly waiting all day to meet the missionary they would get to train. We shared dessert together and then sent them all off to their new areas to begin their great missionary adventure.
We’re excited to work with your son in this important calling to share the gospel. We love him already and appreciate his desire to serve the Lord and the people of Brazil, in this the “best mission in the world.” Thank you for supporting him. Your positive e-mails and letters will be so important for his success as a missionary.
We will do our best to meet his physical and spiritual needs while he is away from your care for these two years.
With love and appreciation,
President and Sister Hart
