Dear Brother and Sister Santeco,
It is a pleasure to advise you that the Lord has called your son, Elder Gabriel Jirapoomdaje Santeco, to serve as the trainer of a new missionary. This is a position which reflects our sincere faith and confidence in your son. As a trainer, he will be responsible to teach and train the Gospel of obedience to the commandments and mission rules, language skills, finding and teaching skills, and in all these things to lead by example. He will help his companion understand and live the principles described in 'Preach My Gospel' so that they are able to help people "come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end". As the first companion to a new Elder, your son will have a lasting impact on the success of his companion, which in turn has a tremendous impact on the future success of this mission.
Elder Santeco has shown a desire to be dedicated and obedient. His strength of character is a great example to the missionaries with whom he works. Thank you for all you have done to prepare him for the great trust the Lord has now placed upon him.
Sister Johnson and I thank you for your son and for your continued faith and prayers in his behalf.
