Snail Mail from President Jennings dated 4/3/09

President Jennings writes:

"Dear Brother and Sister Hadden,

A few nights ago, Sister Jennings and I had the choice opportunity of meeting your daughter at the airport and welcoming her to Busan. Even though her flight had been very lengthy and she had little chance to sleep, she was still cheerful and smiling.

We have been anticipating her arrival for many months and it was wonderful to finally meet her. We spent two days together and had an opportunity to visit privately together in the Mission Home. We also enjoyed a very spiritual testimony meeting where Sister Hadden bore testimony in the Korean language and expressed her desire to serve the Savior and the Korean people.

Sister Hadden was also able to meet her new companion who is an outstanding missionary and an excellent trainer. We know that they will grow together in service and love as they teach investigators and members in their new area.

Missionary work in the Korea Busan Mission is challenging, but our missionaries find great rewards in serving the Lord here. Sister Hadden will learn much about herself, the gospel, and our Savior as she puts all her heart and strength into this great work.

We are grateful for her willingness and her worthiness to serve. We thank you for preparing her and for sharing her with the Korea Busan Mission. We know that her devoted efforts will richly bless the lives of your family.

We thank you for your support and ask you to write regular encouraging letters to her (Please use this address--Dongnae P.O. Box 73, Busan 607-600. While serving in other areas, mail to this address may be quickly forwarded without additional cost.) We know that as she works with all her heart, might, mind, and strength she will have a most amazing missionary experience. We know you will experience the miracle that is missionary work through your fine daughter and her dilligent efforts.

. . . Sister Jennings and I are honored to stand besides these tremendous young men and women in this sacred calling.

Thank you again for your sacrifice and service. We pray that the Lord will continue to bless you and your family and keep you ever in His watchful care.

Faithfully yours,

Kenneth W. Jennings, Jr.
Korea Busan Mission President"
