Hey sorry for not writing at all, hopefully next week! But the work is going well and the church is true!
March 29, 2016 note from Elder Martino
Dear Brother and Sister Sirrine,
Sister Martino and I are serving in the Hampton Bays Branch with your son, Elder Sirrine. We are witnessing many miracles in this part of the vineyard. He is a fantastic missionary exemplifying many Christ-like attributes. He was very concerned that he had not written to you the last couple of weeks and asked if I would write to you this evening. He did not want you to have to wait until next Monday to hear from him. He has promised to write you next p-day.
It is an honor to be able to send you this short note. Your son is well and enthusiastically doing the Lord's work. You can be proud of him as he has totally consecrated all he has in building the kingdom of God. In our previous mission, my wife and I had 630 missionaries during our three-year tenure and we would have enjoyed having all of our missionaries to be just like your son.
It is amazing to us to watch these young adults, both male and female, consecrate 18 months to two years of their lives in serving other people. Your son is one of the Lord's army as these missionaries help prepare the world for the second coming of Christ. Rest assured that your son is truly an instrument in the Lord's hands.
Elder and Sister Martino
