Dear Brother and Sister Bretzing,
We are pleased to announce that your son, Elder Matthew Drew Bretzing, is safely with us in the Berlin Mission. We have had the opportunity to get to know him, and he is ready and excited to be here. Sister Kosak and I look forward to working with him and will do all that we can to help him serve a happy and successful mission. Elder Bretzing’s first companion will be Elder Larsen, and they will work together in Meissen for the next several weeks. If you would like to send letters to your missionary, please send them to the mission office address:
Kirche Jesu Christi HLT
We have all discussed the mission goals and agreed that we will start right, work hard, and finish strong in order to fulfill our purpose to invite others to come unto Christ.
We, along with your son, appreciate the support which you give through your weekly letters and daily prayers in his behalf. Thank you for raising your son so that he can be part of this amazing work.
For a glimpse inside the mission, including occasional pictures of your missionary, you can check the blog we maintain at http://germanyberlinmission2012-15.blogspot.com. If you ever have questions, you are welcome to e-mail me at: email@example.com. I’ve included a picture of Elder Bretzing, his companion, Elder Larsen, Sister Kosak, and me.
May the Lord bless you in all that you do.
Henry W. Kosak, President
Germany Berlin Mission
