Dear Sister Parkin,
I pray that upon receiving this letter, you are enjoying and taking advantage of these last weeks of your mission. I urge you to continue to work with all your might in bringing souls unto Christ. In doing so, you will serve and bring joy not only to yourself, but also to many other children of our Heavenly Father. Don't let them down! Remember, you are now better prepared and trained for missionary service than at any other time of your mission. You have grown in your testimony, your language skills, and your ability to teach with power. These last few weeks should be the most productive time of your mission! Now is the time to pick up the pace! Sprint to the finish!
Sister Arrington and I wish to express our great appreciation for your hard work and your obedience. We know that you have been strengthened and sustained many times by the Lord and that you will leave with a strong testimony of the gospel. It is our prayer that you will return to your home with a strong desire to continue with your duties as a member of the Church and to fulfill the gospel plan that you have been teaching.
Again, I express to you my appreciation and recommend that you read Helaman 10:4-5.
Kent J. Arrington
