Dear Elder Alatorre:

You are hereby called to serve as a missionary of The
Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. You are assigned
to labor in the Spain Madrid Mission. It is anticipated that
you will serve for a period of 24 months.

You should report to the Missionary Training Center in
Provo, Utah on Wednesday, 28 July 1999. You will prepare to
preach the gospel in the Spanish language.

You have been recommended as one worthy to represent the Lord
as a minister of the restored gospel. You will be an official
representative of the Church. As such, you will be expected
to
maintain highest standards of conduct and appearance by keeping
the commandments, living mission rules, and following the
counsel of your mission president.

You will also be expected to devote all your time and attention
to serving the Lord, leaving behind all other personal affairs.
As you do these things, the Lord will bless you and you will
become an effective advocate and messenger of the truth. We
place in you our confidence and pray that the Lord will help
you meet your responsibilities.

The Lord will reward the goodness of your life. Greater
blessings and more happiness than you have yet experienced
await you as your humbly and prayerfully serve the Lord in
this labor of love among His children.

We ask that you please send your written acceptance promptly,
endorsed by your bishop.

Sincerely,
Gordon B. Hinckley
