Subject: I found a powerful young man in Brazil!
To: "", "

Dear Brother and Sister Horton,

I just finished a tour of the Brazil Fortaleza Leste Mission. While there I had the privilege of interviewing your son.  I expect that you are very proud of him. You should be! He has a beautiful countenance and he exudes strength and testimony. He loves the people, looks healthy and is serving well. I also want you to know that President and Sister Leite love him. They are powerful leaders here in Brazil and your son is blessed to be under their capable stewardship.

Thank you for raising such a righteous young man. I pray that you will recognize the blessings that are yours as you watch your son serve from afar. Your sacrifice does not go unnoticed.

With love and admiration,

Elder W. Mark Bassett
