Greetings from Guatemala.

The following letter is from the Missionary Training Center (MTC) President in Guatemala, President Christensen. As many of you know, Elder Jensen was at the MTC in Provo, UT for the first three weeks of his mission, and he has just arrived in Guatemala earlier this week.

Dear Parents and Loved Ones:

Your missionary arrived "safe and sound" Tuesday night (after a significant delay in Dallas)--- arriving at the MTC after midnight... and was involved all morning  at the MTC here in Guatemala --- in orientation for their next phase of training. They finally got into the classroom in the afternoon and have started learning more Spanish & teachings from Preach My Gospel. I've attached a photo (three separate groups) of them out in front of the flags in the entry of the MTC here in Guatemala. Sorry, they are not  great pictures ---but enjoy!
You are no doubt very proud of your missionary. You should be! This is a very good group of 22 missionaries who join another extraordinary group of 5 North Americans who are in their final three weeks PLUS 42 missionaries from Mexico, Guatemala, Peru, Bolivia, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Belize, Chile, Panama, and other Latin American countries. 

Your missionary has Preparation Day on Tuesdays and will be writing to you then.  I know that your support through letters and emails bless your 'missionary' a lot  --- and will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again for your missionary!!!  We come to love these missionaries a great deal and appreciate you lending them to the Lord for this season of their lives.

Thanks again!

President David A. Christensen
