Dear Hull family,
We wanted to let you know that we are delighted to have met and spent the last three days with Sister Hull. She is a sweetheart and we learned that she is quite the musician and athlete. She mentioned that your family had the opportunity to be in the Hill Cumorah Pageant which must have been a special experience. She will undoubtedly be a great addition to our mission.
We assure you that we will do everything possible to help Sister Hull grow in her personal conversion, and to thus have a positive experience here in the newly formed Ecuador Quito North Mission. This is a wonderful mission that experiences a high number of baptisms, and success in reactivation. Our boundaries include coast, jungle, a native Indian area, as well as the highly populated city of Quito so our missionaries have a wide range of experiences. President Spencer W. Kimball said that the most pure Lamanite people live in Otavalo, which is a part of our mission. This is easy to believe because of their faithfulness and strength – earning their city the title of “Utah”valo.
The theme of our mission is translated “The Center of the World; Centered on Christ,” and we have a wonderful group of 13 missionaries that arrived with her. She will be serving in that wonderful area of Otavalo with Hermana Salas, a very new but excellente missionary from Lima, Peru.. We will care for her as if she were our own.
We know you’re already planning on it, but we want to remind you to write your daughter a weekly letter. Her preparation day will be on Mondays.
President Brian and Hermana Susan Richardson
