As you may know by now, your son has been assigned to serve as an Assistant in the Peru Lima Central Mission. Your son has shown a high level of dedication and maturity to be given this responsibility. He is an outstanding missionary and we are so grateful to have him as our new Assistant.
This assignment comes to only a few of the most outstanding missionaries. Elder Hicken has distinguished himself as an excellent teacher, diligent worker and a well-organized leader. He is a great example to his fellow missionaries and has gained their love and respect. His worthiness and leadership abilities are a tribute to himself and to his entire family.
His dedication to the Lord and willingness to serve will provide him with experiences that will assist him in the future and in leadership callings in the Church. Sister Borg and I work very closely with the Assistants, and we grow to love them as our very own.
We appreciate your continuing support of Elder Hicken as he continues to serve our Father in Heaven with all of his “heart, might, mind and strength.” (D&C 4:2)
