Dear Brother and Sister Boren,
We want you to know that your son Elder Collin Lyle Boren arrived in the Samoa Apia Mission safely and in good spirits. We have enjoyed observing his enthusiasm and great desire to do the Lord’s work. We deeply appreciate his willingness to come to serve our Heavenly Father and…“cause His church to be established” among the people of Samoa. (D&C 28:8)
Weekly contact through correspondence is a great source of strength to both missionary and family. We express our hope that it will continue throughout his mission. We keep in contact with all missionaries through island conferences. We conduct quarterly interviews as well as personal interviews as needed.
We thank you for supporting your son in the choice he has made to serve our Heavenly Father. May you find joy and happiness through his service.
President Johnny L. Leota
