This is the email we received when Elder Kremer arrived at the Mission Home. This brought great comfort to us as he was our first missionary, and the youngest of our children. Prior to leaving to serve a mission he had not be away from home for more than a week at a time.

Dear Parents of Elder Kremer,
What a pleasure it was to welcome Elder Kristofer Aaron Kremer into the Utah Salt Lake City South Mission. He arrived October 8th. His first day with us included lunch and orientation at the mission office, and of course, meeting his companion. I am impressed by his desire to serve. He is well and in high spirits as he anticipates the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. Please be assured that we will be watching over him while he is here. I'm attaching photographs taken as we welcomed him at the mission office.
After prayerful consideration, excellent missionaries, have been assigned as his first companions. I am attaching our Family Guidelines which we urge you to follow. We have learned from experience the importance of family and friends following these guidelines. Please share the guidelines with those who may write to him. Your compliance of these guidelines can reinforce your missionary's willingness to follow the guidelines in the Missionary Handbook.
Please email your son each week and send any hard-copy letters and packages to the mission, addressed to your son at the address listed above.
Thank you for raising such an outstanding young person, worthy and willing to serve the Lord full time in our mission. I know you will be blessed for the sacrifices that make his service possible. May the Lord's choicest blessings be yours.
