Arrival Letter from Mission President

Dear Brother and Sister Hurst,


It was a very special experience to personally greet your daughter, Sister Karlee McKaye Hurst, at the airport upon her arrival in Tucson.  We were impressed by her great spirit and desire to serve.  We are grateful to have her serving here with us.


From the airport we took her and the other missionaries to the Mormon Battalion Monument in downtown Tucson, where we talked about commitment, and leaving behind all the cares of the world to focus on the work of the Lord.  After a brief stop at the mission office to have lunch and meet the office staff, the Elders and Sisters received instruction and training from the Assistants to the President, Sister Killpack and myself.  I had the pleasure of interviewing your daughter and getting to know her personally and to feel her wonderful missionary spirit.  Later that evening we dined together, took photographs and took the opportunity to discuss our purpose as missionaries.


Sister Hurst has been assigned to the Tucson Zone, located in Tucson, Arizona with Sister Smyth as her companion.  If, in case of emergency, you need to contact your daughter, please call the mission office at 520-577-7076.


As you write to your daughter, please encourage her to continue to serve faithfully, being completely obedient throughout her mission.  We know that she, and the Tucson Mission, will be in your prayers.  We also know that the coming months will bring many blessings into your lives by your daughter’s faithful service and the sacrifice you are making for her to serve the Lord and her fellow men.  Thank you very much for having prepared your daughter to withstand the rigors of missionary life and now to be serving with us here.


May the Lord bless you.  We send our love and appreciation.
