Mexico Oaxaca Mission
Oaxaca de Juárez, Oaxaca
Dear Sawyer Family:I write this letter to inform you that your son, Elder Sawyer, has been called to serve as a Zone Leader here in the Mexico Oaxaca Mission. Now he’s the responsibility to teach, take care of, inspire and edify the missionaries in his zone. His service has qualified him for this responsibility.
There are high expectations for your son in this new assignment. A Zone Leader must be an example to his zone in every aspect: for example, the work in his own area, his personal worthiness and his obedience to the Lord. The missionaries in his zone will follow him and I trust that your son will be a great example for them.Your son is going to teach the missionaries and district leaders in his zone in a monthly manner, he’ll meet up monthly with the Stake President/ District President and sometimes with the Bishops/Branch Presidents, to coordinate the advance of the missionary work in that zone.
He’ll represent the Mission President in many situations and will take decisions that will increase the level of commitment of the missionaries and priesthood leaders that will associate. I’m sure that your son will inspire his son to follow the Lord and to fulfill the high standards that He expects of them as His representatives.I congratulate you for raising such a responsible young man and I thank you for sending us such an excellent missionary. I only ask that you continue praying for him so that he can fulfill his new assignment in a way that pleases the Lord. Your son has all my support, love and trust, while he continues to progress as a servant of the Lord.
