Brother and Sister Arima
Elder Arima arrived in the Australia Sydney North Mission safely. Thank you for entrusting him into our care for the time of his mission. Sister Howes and I are mindful of the great trust you have placed in us by sharing your son with us. When he arrived, we met him at the airport and took him to the mission office, where he was introduced to the office staff and some of the other missionaries. This was then followed by lunch and orientation. We will email a picture of your wonderful missionary with us.
Elder Arima's companion is Elder White from United States. They will be serving in Harbour City.
We are sending a map of the mission which you may want to keep so you can see where your missionary is serving at any time. Our mission is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the world. I am aware that the Lord blesses the families of missionaries in many special ways. As your son serves, you will find that to be very true. Your support is greatly appreciated. You may contact the mission president, should the need arise, at any time. Missionaries are allowed to send and receive email. They check it at the local library on preparation day, which is usually Monday but can change depending on weekly circumstances.
President Philip F. Howes
