Dear Schramm Family:
It is my pleasure to inform you of an important assignment given to your son, Elder Schramm. He has been called to serve as the materials secretary for the Mexico Monterrey West Mission. Elder Schramm has a strong testimony of his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, and has demonstrated great leadership qualities, gaining the respect of the other missionaries. He is a very responsible and intelligent young man, and has already made a great contribution to the Lords work here in Mexico.
The materials secretary is responsible for the contracts, supplies, furniture, and maintenance of over 100 mission houses. He also manages the supplies for the office, and all of the proselyting materials needed by the missionaries. A conscientious and organized physical facilities secretary has an immense impact on the entire mission. The office missionaries still do “regular” missionary work every day and are assigned an area in which to proselyte.
The ability Elder Schramm has to speak both English and Spanish is also a real blessing to us in the mission, and makes him an invaluable missionary. He will learn many new things during his time in the office, which will be of great benefit to him in the future.
Sister McArthur and I appreciate his service, and we express our gratitude to you for having raised such a fine young man, who loves the gospel, loves the Lord, and serves him with all of his heart, might, mind and strength. It has been my pleasure to know him and to work with him in this great and important work of the latter days.
May the Lord bless you while your son is away serving in this marvelous work.
President Daniel D McArthur
Mexico Monterrey West Mission
