Dear Elder Hedman:
Congratulations on your appointment as a Zone Leader! In accepting this position, you accept a responsibility of great magnitude. It is exciting to see you develop the ability, faithfulness and obedience required to handle this important stewardship.
You are expected by the Lord and me to excel in all aspects of the work. Prayerfully study the responsibilities of your new assignment. (See Missionary Handbook, pages 55-62) The power of your example will be tremendous, so put forth every effort to magnify your assignment and your priesthood. Earn the respect of the missionaries you serve and become a source of help for them. Be a light and a servant leader!
Through this assignment you can have a major impact on the success of the Angeles Mission as well as upon the development of many missionaries. As a leader you must put on the whole armor of God to shield yourself better from the temptations of the world. Be humble and obedient that your life will exemplify true leadership. Use this experience to grow by helping others develop.
This is also an appointment to the Mission Leadership Council. This is a very important role in the mission as we meet monthly to counsel over the affairs of the mission. You are expected to prepare well for these council meetings and bring your best ideas and recommendations that all may enjoy a revelatory experience.
I am informing your family of this accomplishment. I hope they will be most pleased with your appointment as a Zone Leader. Continue faithfully in all aspects of the work and enjoy the blessings the Lord has waiting for you in this new position. Sister Clark and I look forward to the opportunity of working more closely with you in this new assignment.
Scott B. Clark
We received the above letter from the mission office this week.
Mac has been called to be a zone 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.
