August 24, 2016- A special letter from the mission president

Dear Brother and Sister Argϋelles,

Elder Kevin Paul Augϋelles has been called to be a District Leader and a Trainer in the California Los Angeles Mission.  These assignments have come to him because he has exhibited high qualities of leadership and obedience, has demonstrated excellent teaching skills, and has gained the trust of his fellow missionaries.  In these leadership positions, he will be an example of conduct, appearance, and performance to his fellow missionaries.

As a District Leader, he will supervise the activities of between 4 to 8 Missionaries in his district.  His responsibilities will include demonstrating and teaching missionary skills and attributes to each member of his district.  One of his most important responsibilities will be to interview candidates for baptism to determine their worthiness for this most significant ordinance.

As a Trainer, he will train a new missionary.  No more important position exists than that of training a new missionary.  New missionaries need to be properly taught immediately upon entering the mission field.  Initial experiences truly influence the remainder of their mission.  Your son will teach by both precept and example the conduct and skills that his companion needs to become an effective messenger of the truth.  I am confident that he will, with the help of the Lord, be very successful in his new calling.  

Sister Haynie joins me in extending to you our sincere appreciation for your fine son.  We realize that your example, training and love have contributed in large measure to his success as a missionary.

Sincerely yours,
Robert M. Haynie, President
California Los Angeles Mission
