Email from his mission president



Dear Family of Elder Dallin Gomez:

We want to let you know your son arrived Saturday safe and sound and smiling. We
picked him and 16 other missionaries up at the airport, came to the mission home for
lunch and an orientation, then to a chapel where they met their trainers. Elder
Dallin Gomez will be working with the amazing Elder Jeffrey Chavez (from Santiago,
Chile) in the city of Labranza.

This mission extends from Talcahuano in the north to Loncoche in the south, about 5
hours by car. There are 203 missionaries, a 50/50 mix of Latinos and North
Americans, plus a few from Europe and other areas of the world. Missionaries teach
an average of 30 lessons a week and each companionship visits 10 inactive families
each week, so they stay busy. The food and water are safe and the countryside
magnificent.

There has never been a better time or place to serve a mission than right here,
right now. Following the earthquake and the announcement of a temple here, the
people and the land have been prepared for the Gospel message brought to their door
by your handsome son. It's a privilege to serve with him in this wonderful work of
the Lord. Thanks for your support and prayers.

Sincerely,

President & Hermana Swenson
