Dear Brother and Sister Burbank:
We are happy to report that your daughter arrived safely in Bangkok today. She is tired but in good spirits and is anxious to begin laboring in the Lord's vineyard in Thailand. We are thrilled to have her as a missionary in the Thailand Bangkok Mission family. Your daughter will be oriented today by the Office Couple, Elder and Sister Meeker, the Mission Assistants and also Sister Senior and I. Then she will have her first experience street contacting in the area. She will have dinner in the evening at President and Sister Senior’s home. We have reserved a hotel room for her and her companion this evening.
Your daughter will receive her first assignment tomorrow at transfer meeting. Preparation day will be on Monday and she will be able to email you each week. I am sure she will have much to share regarding her experiences in Thailand, missionary activities and her first Sunday in his assigned area.
Please feel free to contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions during your daughters’ term of missionary experience.
President and Sister Senior
