The Call

March 3, 2015

Dear Sister Schmidt:

You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. You are assign to labor in the México Aguascalientes Mission. It is anticipated that you will serve for a period of 18 months.


You should report to the Mexico Missionary Training Center on Wednesday, July 22, 2015.  You will prepare to preach the gospel in the Spanish language.  Your assignment may be modified according to the needs of the mission president.

You have been recommended as one worthy to represent the Lord as a minister of the restored gospel.  You will be an official representative of the Church. As such, you will be expected to maintain the highest standards of conduct and appearance by keeping the commandments, living mission rules, and following the counsel of your mission president.  As devote your time and attention to serving the Lord, leaving behind all other personal affairs, the Lord will bless you with increased knowledge and testimony of the Restoration and of the truths of the gospel of Jesus Christ.  
Your purpose will be to invite others to 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 you serve with all your heart, might, and strength, the Lord will lead you to those who are prepared to be baptized.

The Lord will reward you for the goodness of your life.  Greater blessing and more happiness than you have yet experience await you as you humbly and prayerfully serve the Lord in this labor of love among His children.  We place our confidence in you and pray that the Lord will help you become an effective missionary...
                                    ...Sincerely,


                                            Thomas S. Monson
                                                      President
