Letter and Pictures from Mission President

Matthew's Mission President and his wife sent his parents the following letter with pictures attached:
Dear President and Sister Welch,
We are so pleased that Elder Welch is serving in the Ecuador Quito Mission.  We welcome him with all our hearts and know that the special gifts he has been given from our Father in Heaven and talents he has developed will bless the lives of those with and for whom he serves in a unique way only he can offer.  His dedicated service will further increase his abilities and character in remarkable ways.
There are currently 210 missionaries in our mission, serving in 10 zones. Elder Welch has been assigned to serve in Quito in the Los Chillos zone with Elder Belnap as his companion and trainer.  Elder Belnap is known by the other missionaries as being hardworking, diligent, obedient, with a knowledge of the doctrine, and very kind. 
Attached are several photos that show Elder Welch with his companion; the group of missionaries with whom he arrived; and the group with their new trainers. There is also a Facebook group called Missionary Families Ecuador Quito Mission 2014-2017.  Please send a request, if you are interested, and I will add you.  I encourage you to post pictures.
We know and understand that there is sacrifice on your part both emotionally and financially to support him during this period of full time missionary service and we express our gratitude for your offering which furthers the work of inviting others to come unto Christ and to receive the blessings of the Gospel in their lives.
With our love and gratitude,
President and Sister Roger G.Christensen
MisiĆ³n Ecuador Quito
