A letter from President and Sister Groberg

Dear family of Elder Heiner, June 2013

Greetings from Indonesia!

We are thrilled to welcome Elder Heiner to the Indonesia Jakarta Mission.  Upon his initial arrival, we enjoyed a welcome dinner and getting acquainted. Elder Heiner was then temporarily assigned in the Jakarta area until his group goes to immigration to obtain a KITAS (a card that gives approval to reside temporarily in Indonesia). He and his group were all good sports when their luggage was several days late arriving.  Tuesday he will begin in his first area, Malang in East Java with Elder Suryono who will be a wonderful trainer and companion.

Indonesia is a challenging mission and can be quite an adjustment at the first but we know that Elder Heiner will rise to the challenge. Already we can see that he is enthusiastic and obedient. We love these missionaries and will do all we can to keep them safe, healthy and happy in their service to the Lord here.

Missionaries are encouraged to write their families every week. On preparation day (Monday) they have one hour to email the mission president and their family and friends. All postal mail can be sent to the mission office and will be distributed.

We encourage families to write each week too. Letters are such a lift and a wonderful source of encouragement for the missionaries.

Elder Heiner is already using the language studied in the MTC.  He will be a blessing to the mission. Thank you for preparing and sharing a faithful son.

Sincerely, President and Sister Groberg
