Below is a letter we received from President and Sister Dalton who preside over the mission:
¡¡Saludos de Chile!!
We are pleased to inform you of the safe arrival of Sister Catherine Mary Freedman in the Chile Antofagasta Mission. We are thrilled to have Sister Freedman serving here with us. We were able to pick her up at the airport today and enjoyed getting to know her.
Thank you for the sacrifices you are making and the support you are giving to her while she serves. We know she will appreciate the support she receives from home and you will be blessed for having a missionary in the field. We have attached photos of Sister Freedman taken in front of our signature Antofagasta landmark, La Portada, with the city of Antofagasta in the background.
If there is an email address other than the one this email was sent to that you would prefer that we use and put in our records, please let us know by replying to this email. Attached to this email is a document about communicating with your missionary, I know it is long, but it has important information.
We have created a facebook group for parents/guardians of our missionaries where we can put information. The major purpose of this group is to have it available as a way to contact many parents at once in case of an emergency in the mission. To join the group, please find “Hermana Sandra Dalton” on facebook and send me a friend request. Please do not send a request to join the mission family group, just a ‘friend’ request and I will add you to the group. This group is only for parents, not for other relatives or friends of our missionaries. If parents do not have a facebook page I can accept the friend request of ONE relative or other contact person, preferably an adult. If this is the case the person sending the friend request will need to send me a message telling me their relationship to the missionary.
The Lord is hastening the Work of Salvation and this is an amazing time to be a missionary. Sister Freedman is needed here and we are so grateful she has chosen to serve a mission, we can tell she is going to touch many hearts and change many lives, helping many to come unto Christ. We will care for her as if she were our own.
With much love,
President & Sister Dalton
