Letter From Pres. Patterson

Dear Brother and Sister Webb,

Your daughter, Sister Jessica Webb, will complete her mission on the 28th of March, 2017. We have attached her final travel itinerary. In case flights and times change between now and the day of departure, please check your missionary’s travel plans via Internet for updates.

 Sister Webb is a wonderful missionary, and I am so please to have served as her mission president.  She has been dedicated to her missionary purpose 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.  She has learned to be led by the Spirit, study the gospel effectively, teach doctrine simply and clearly, bear testimony with power and conviction, and love those around her.  She has learned the importance of being obedient, planning effectively, setting goals, working hard, and relying on the Lord to accomplish the work of salvation.  Your daughter will be greatly missed.

This letter is not intended to signify that your daughter’s missionary experience is over. The Lord not only requires His servants to endure to the end, but also pours out additional blessings upon those who do so.  We have found that missionaries who work hard right up to their departure date have some of their most rewarding experiences and their greatest successes in the last few weeks of their missions. Please encourage your daughter to remain diligent and focused right to the end of her mission.

 I am certain your daughter will continue to share her testimony and strengths to help establish the Church wherever she may go in life. I express my deepest gratitude to you, Brother and Sister Webb, for sending such a fine missionary to the California Long Beach Mission. Sister Patterson and I have enjoyed serving alongside Sister Webb in this sacred calling as a full-time missionary.


President Brian P. Patterson
