A Letter From Devon's Mission President!

We received this email from Devon's Mission President this week:

Dear Brother and Sister Ridd,

It is a pleasure to inform you that we have assigned your son, Elder Ridd, to serve as a Zone Leader in the Madrid Pavones Zone. He will work closely with another Zone Leader. This calling carries with it many of the same duties as a District Leader; setting an example for the other missionaries through his study of the scriptures and the gospel, obedience, hard work, proselyting skills and other aspects of missionary work. Along with these duties, he will be given some additional responsibilities such as: teaching missionaries in the Zone through companion exchanges, visiting District Meetings, giving presentations in Zone Conferences and in Zone Training Meetings. He will also interview baptismal candidates, who have been taught by the District Leaders in his Zone.

The Assistants to the President and I are responsible for training the Zone Leaders in monthly councils. They will in turn train the members of their Zone. These responsibilities are in addition to his regular proselyting duties. We have confidence in your son, and know that he will grow and develop, and influence those around him as he serves in this capacity. We enjoy working with such a fine Elder in this great work.


Our best wishes to you,


President Scott T. Jackson

Spain Madrid Mission
