"Where Only the Finest Serve!"
April 5, 2014
Dear Elder Hedman:
Congratulations on your call to serve as a District Leader! This represents a significant accomplishment in your progress as a missionary, and we are proud of you and your efforts.
Please study the duties and responsibilities in the missionary handbook pages 55-62 of a District Leader carefully so these duties will become part of your mind and heart, thus enabling you to fulfill this stewardship in the most effective manner.
Your responsibilities as District Leader are substantial. As the Lord entrusts this stewardship to you, I urge you to fully recognize its significance. You will now have the responsibility for the effectiveness and well-being of those missionaries assigned in your district. The most powerful factor in your success will be the light of your example so do all within your power to excel in every aspect of missionary work. Also, be sure you pray to the Lord every day to strengthen and guide you in fulfilling your calling. Remember to love and show love to the missionaries in your district. When they know you love and care for them, they will be able to grow and progress more rapidly and more completely.
This experience can be of great value for your growth and development and will equip you to handle significant responsibilities in your career, your family, and in the Church. Apply yourself and make the most of it! It will provide great blessings in your life and in the lives of others.
May the Lord bless you with continuing success in His work!

We received the above letter from the mission office this week. Mac has been called to be a district leader. We are not sure yet if it is the same area/district he has been in. This is a great opportunity to serve the other missionaries in his area.
