Letter from the Mission Home

We express our love and congratulations that your son,  has been called by the Lord to serve in the Mexico Tijuana Mission.   It is our privilege to welcome him; be assured that the Lord will surround him with his love and support (D&C 84:88).  We will also do our part to help in his spiritual and physical well-being.
The purpose of your son is to "Invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end."
Letters from the family are very important for the missionaries.  We suggest that you write to your child every week and provide him with encouragement and good news; in order to write to you, the missionaries are only allowed to use the email provided by the Church,, and the rule is that they write you every week on Monday.
So that letters and packages can arrive even more quickly to your son, we have a United States P.O. Box.  It is at the following address:
(Name of missionary)
Mexico Tijuana Mission
PMB 157, P.O. Box 439056
San Ysidro, CA 92143-9056
We would also like you to know that the missionaries receive a certain amount of money each month.  These funds are sacred and represent the sacrifices of family and other members.  The missionaries should have a monthly budget, be savings minded, and prudent in how they spend these funds.  We suggest that you do not send money very often.  It is appropriate to send him money only when they have needs such as the replacement of clothing.  This will help your child learn to be self-sufficient and prepare him for his future life.
We appreciate the support you give your son.  In this way, you help support missionary work.  May the Lord bless you in this work of love.
