Just because I can (since I get to post things on this blog), I thought that I would take a little license and include an excerpt from Matt’s mission president concerning his appointment as a zone leader.
Dear Brother and Sister Griner
Your son, Elder Matthew Griner, is maturing in the gospel and is becoming one of our finest missionaries. He has demonstrated leadership ability and dedication to the work of the Lord. He is reliable and has shown good judgment in his decisions……
….. We love your son and confess that we feel some pride in his accomplishments. May the Lord bless you for all you have done, and are now doing, to help him be an effective servant.
