Dear Parents of Elder Weller,

     We welcomed Elder Weller to the Utah Salt Lake City South Mission on Wednesday, December 17, 2014.  His first day included lunch and orientation at the mission office, and meeting his first companion.   After prayerful consideration, he was assigned to his first companion and trainer; Elder Erazo.   He is doing very well and is in high spirits as he anticipates the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.  Please be assured that we will be watching over him during his mission.  With this letter I am sending photographs taken soon after his arrival.

Please communicate with your missionary each week either by email or by sending letters and packages to the mission; addressed to your son at the address listed above (Please see * below). 
     Thank you for sending such an outstanding, worthy and willing missionary to serve the Lord full time in our mission.  I know you will be blessed for the sacrifices that make his service possible.  May the Lord's choicest blessings be yours.

* Guidlines:  In case you wanted to write to Elder Weller
Regular mail is important, but too much can hurt the work. 
If you email your missionary weekly it is to be a letter and not an opportunity for
online chatting. A maximum of ninety minute internet usage is allowed for missionaries on
preparation day to email family, friends, priesthood leaders and new converts, to view the
two approved web sites and to read emails from friends and family.
Send all hard copy mail and/or packages to the mission office with your missionary’s
full name above the mission name. The full name is important as there are many duplicate
surnames. Gifts: A personal, practical, and inexpensive gift from home to the missionary for a
birthday or Christmas is encouraged to show your love and support. Missionaries usually
respond well to a simple care package from loved ones on those special occasions. Sending
perishable items for delivery on a particular day is not practical. Zone leaders pick up mail
in the office on Monday only, to deliver to the missionaries. Address all packages to the
mission office. Upon returning home, your missionary is limited to 2 bags not weighing
more than 50 pounds and 2 small carry on bags of not more than 40 pounds each. Fees are
charged for excess of that. It is best not to send large or bulky items they will want to
bring home.
