Letter from Mission President upon arrival

Dear Parents,
Your son, Elder Virgil Mayberry. arrived in Tonga in good spirits on the 20th of November, 2008. Sister McMurray and I, along with our office elders, greeted him at the airport and took him to our home along with fou other new missionaries. After a healthy breakfast, a great interview and an orientation to all the aspects of the mission, we put him right to wok. We are excited to have him herre to teach these wonderful people. Enclosed is a picture of us taken with him on the first day he arrived. Elder Mayberry's first companion is Elderr 'Alifeleti Vea from Folaha Tongatapu, Tonga. Their missionary home is called Fahefa and is in the Hilamani Zone and has a total of 20 missionaries. We have a total of seven zones with 124 missionaries in our mission at this time. Elder Mayberry is doing well and has caught the spirit of this great work. I am sure his mission will be a great testimony building experience for him. We are very happy to have him serve here in the Tonga Nuku'alofa Mission and will do all we can to help him progress in the work of the Lord. If there is ever anything you would like to discuss with me, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Sincerely, Lynn C. McMurray, President Tonga Nuku'alofa Mission
