Sister Dewey's parents received this email on January 14th!
Parents of Sister Annalee Dewey,
Sister Toone and I wanted to let you know that Sister Dewey arrived safely. Attached you will find two pictures that we thought you might enjoy: one is your missionary with Sister Toone and me, and the other is the group of missionaries with whom she arrived in the Arizona Tempe Mission.
We are so pleased to have Sister Dewey serving in the Arizona Tempe Mission. Monday is Preparation Day at which time she will let you know her mailing address, the zone and district to which she is assigned and the name of her trainer.
As we met with Sister Dewey, we stressed the principles of obedience, hard work and worthiness. This mission holds great potential for each missionary assigned. The members are strong and love these great Elders and Sisters. You can be assured they, and we, will do all possible to watch over your daughter. It is a very special responsibility we feel toward our missionaries. We want to see them enjoy a happy and successful mission.
Our missionaries have permission to Skype or telephone their families twice per year, on Mother's Day and at Christmas. If you need to get a message to your daughter or if you have any questions, please call us directly. We do want the missionaries to receive letters from home on a regular basis encouraging them in their proselyting efforts.
Thank you for raising a missionary who has a desire to serve the Lord.
President James L. Toone
