It's Monday morning so we're chomping at the bit wondering if we will get an email or a letter from Elder Matua. We did however get a letter from President Warner and thought we would share excerpts from it with you, Elder Matua's family and friends.
Dear Brother and Sister Matua:
It is a pleasure to write to you of your son's arrival in the Hawaii Honolulu Mission. He was met at the airport where he arrived well and in good spirits. His companion picked him up and he is now in his new area of labor. His companion was carefully selected to insure him of a proper introduction to missionary work here and we are confident that their relationship will be a mutual blessing.
At the Mission Home we took a snapshot of Elder Matua with Sister Warner and me, which we enclose for you.
Thank you for sharing your son with us. We already love him as one of our own and are thrilled to have him in this mission.
President Stephen R. Warner
