Sister Kaylee N. Widdison
Houston North Zone

Dear Sister Widdison:

I am pleased to have extended an assignment to you to serve as s Sister Trainer Leader in the Texas Houston South Mission. As I mentioned to you when the assignment was extended to you, I know that this new responsibility comes to you from the Lord. There is much that He expects from you as you become a core part of the leadership of this wonderful mission.

This new assignment comes with great responsibilities.  It is essential that you do your best to be an example of exact obedience, faithful service, and being spiritually led by the Lord.
The way you serve will have a great impact on the whole of the mission and its success. Never forget that everything you do or don't do will have an impact on the work, as the missionaries will look to you to set the standard for missionary service. Accordingly, strive that your area will be the strongest in the zone.

It is also essential that you remember that such a position of authority does not indicate that you are any better than your fellow missionaries. To the contrary, as the Lord taught, "and whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all." In order to fulfill this sacred assignment, you must see yourself beneath all rules, requirements and standards of excellence. You will succeed in being a great leader by being a humble example and the first to do what is right.

Please do everything you can to be worthy to be guided by the Spirit in teaching and leading the work with the sister missionaries under your direction. Remember that you represent your mission president, and more importantly the Lord, in every exchange and conversation you have with the sister missionaries under your direction. After an experience with you, the sisters should feel like they have been with a true and humble servant of the Lord. Seek to know the Lord's direction through prayer and revelation, and become more and more a woman of God as you fulfill your responsibilities.

Remember that a key part of what you do is to build up and train the sisters for whom you have responsibility. Make this a focus of your work. Look for opportunities to bless and inspire them. 

On a personal note, I very much look forward to working closely with you in this new assignment. Please know of my love for you and my confidence in you. I know you will do a wonderful job in fulfilling these new responsibilities and have a lasting impact on the missionaries you will serve.
