Brother and Sister Rash ,
Just a quick note to let you know how grateful we are for your son these past weeks at the MTC. He is an exemplary young man. He is obedient, strong and yet humble. We love his “quiet” and happy nature. He is a fine athlete at any sport the Missionaries play. He is very well prepared and has a very strong Spirit about him and the Lord loves him and so do weJ.
A fine young man like your son doesn’t happen by accident. It is obvious that you are wonderful parents and you have sent out “one of the very best.” President Ashton (past mission president) and I have said many times, that he would have been a great leader in our previous mission. We anticipate that he will be a great leader in the Joburg mission as well.
In fact, the only thing wrong with him is that he will be leaving next week! Then we will be like you and missing him very muchJ.
