Dear Brother and Sister Bruno,

Your sister made it! She is here with us in the Philippines Cebu Mission. I am excited about having her in our mission.  She brought a great spirit, and I am looking forward to working with her.  Sister Bruno is presently serving in the City Zone, Talamban Area.  Enclosed is a welcome snapshot taken with Sister Hansen and me.

Our missionaries are encouraged to email family once a week on their preparation day.  Below are a few things you can do to keep your daughter happy and successful while on her mission:

1.  Send letters and/or email regularly.  News from home keeps spirits high and minimizes problems.
2.  When sending packages, we recommend the U.S. Postal service.  Other carriers such as FedEx and DHL, usually incur large customs fees ($40-$80) which the missionary must pay.  Packages should be small enough to be easily carried on public transportation and long walks.
3.  Try not to mention family problems that would worry your missionary.
4.  Please do not visit or telephone your missionary without approval from the Mission President.
5.  If you need to make "Urgent" contact with your missionary, you may contact the Mission Office by using the telephone number below:
Dial  011-6332-230-1240, or
Email me at: CebuMission08@gmail.com

Most international missionaries require some extra money from home for shoes, clothing or dental work.  However, we encourage wisdom and prudence because additional money is often detrimental to learning the lessons of sacrifice and consecration.  We recommend a major debit/credit account with joint signatures of parents and missionary for international missionaries.

Thank you for preparing and sending us your fine missionary.  We'll love her and help her learn to take good care of herself.

Warmest Regards,

D. Parke Hansen
Philippines Cebu Mission
