She is there!

To the Family of Sister Pettingill

Sister Poznanski and I were delighted to welcome your daughter, Sister Katherine Patricia Pettingill , into the France Paris Mission on 17 Sep 2013. She and her MTC companions were enthusiastic and all arrived in good health.  She spent her first day eating some good food, visiting with me, contacting non-members in the heart of Paris, and sharing testimonies.  We enjoyed her spirit.

The next morning, after a mission orientation, Sister Pettingill left for her first assignment to work in the Mulhouse S Area with Sister Hafen, who will be her trainer.  Their apartment address is:
Résidence Franklin Bat. C 35, rue Engel Dollfus
Mulhouse, 68200
Any packages or letters you would like to send will reach your missionary at this address.

We feel very privileged to work with your her.  We also realize the responsibility we share with you to help her continue to grow spiritually as she faithfully performs her duties.  May the Lord inspire us all to sustain her in this challenging and exciting assignment.  We hope you will join Sister Poznanski and me in praying each day for your daughter , her companion, investigators, and all of us serving in the France Paris Mission.

A positive, supportive letter from home every week does wonders to sustain a missionary’s morale.  Proverbs 25:25 states:  As cold waters to a thirsty soul, so is good news from a far country.
