8/31/2011 An Email from President King

Dear Brother Christensen ,

I am pleased to inform you that your son, Elder Christensen, has been called to serve as a Zone Leader in our mission. He has exhibited leadership capabilities through his desire to learn and lead out in his efforts as a missionary. His example of hard work, following the Spirit, and concern for his fellow missionaries have prepared him to assume these new responsibilities.

This opportunity will stretch him and give him new opportunities for growth. As he lifts and sustains the missionaries under his stewardship, he will develop a deep love for them and for the Lord. These abilities will sustain him throughout his life.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve with your son here in the mission field. This is the work of the Lord. His efforts are blessing the lives of so many. I am grateful to you for supporting him in this new and important calling.


President Richard W. King

(As a side note I wanted to let you know what a wonderful job your son did in the mission office. We will miss his enthusiasm, generosity and hard work. He was really nervous about leaving the office and becoming a Zone Leader but was much relieved when he found that Elder Pari, a Latin, was his companion. Elder Pari is a very kind and gentle soul. I know Elder Christensen will be a wonderful Zone Leader as he teaches those elders he has stewardship over to be obedient and faithful just as he is. Sincerely Hmn Dorius)
