Dear  Elder Terry,

     Congratulations on your call to the Perú Trujillo Mission.  We are thankful that the Lord has selected you to join us here to serve the people of Perú.  You will find the people here, loving, kind, gracious and prepared to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  It is our privilege to work with the descendants of the people of the Book of Mormon, of whom it was said, “I will establish my church among them, and they shall come in unto the covenant and be numbered among this the remnant of Jacob, unto whom I have given this land for their inheritance. (3 Nephi 21:22).

    We have been praying for you, we love you.  Our desire is for you to have great spiritual experience as you serve the Lord in this part of His vineyard.  We are here to assist you in this pursuit.  Please take this time to prepare yourself for your mission.  Continue in your study of the Book of Mormon and also, Preach My Gospel.  Strive each day to become more like the Savior, study his attributes and continue to develop them in your life (D&C 4:6).

     If you have not already done so, please make arrangements to go to the temple soon and attend as regularly as possible.  Some temples allow newly called missionaries to serve as ordinance workers prior to their mission, you may contact your temple president and ask if this is possible in your area.  A Temple is under construction here in Trujillo, and we are preparing everyone to receive the eternal blessings and ordinances that await them in the House of the Lord.

     We testify to you that Jesus is the Christ, that His Gospel is true and that this, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is his only true church on the earth today.  We testify that there are many people waiting for your arrival to hear the Saviors message.  We promise you that as you live worthy to have the Holy Ghost as your constant companion, you will see miracles in your life, the lives of your family members and in the lives of those you teach in the mission field.  The Holy Ghost will lead you and guide you to find those who have been prepared to hear the gospel message from you. 

     We look forward to seeing you soon in Trujillo. 

With love,
President Kurt Marler
Sister Kathy Marler
