Thank you for your very kind letter. That was a first for us, and it meant a great deal! We ADORE your sweet girl, she is literally like a daughter to us. You have every
reason to be so proud of her! Hermana Mecham was always obedient, worked very hard, taught with power and conviction, and she served her fellow missionaries and members with all her heart.
She has such a gift for nurturing and after her many experiences nursing her companions and other Hermanas in the mission, a career in nursing would be a natural fit! She is
so talented and generous with the gifts the Lord has given her. We depended on her a great deal, we know she had to do some hard things but she stepped up to the plate
and made a HUGE difference in the mission! We feel a little guilty that she will be returning home exhausted, only to turn right around and go on Pioneer Trek, but if anyone can do it, its Hermana Mecham! She will be such an asset to your trek; sharing her wisdom, testimony, and nurturing skills.
We are happy to think of her in your arms again, and know that she is so excited to be with her family! She has wonderful plans to keep progressing, moving to Provo to live and study. Her friendships with the other missionaries will be such a blessing for all of them. Hermana Mecham will forever be a part of the Lima Central Mission family, and one of our dearest friends. We love her more than words can express.
You did a good job mom and dad Mecham! Thank you for sharing your daughter with us and the people of Lima! Soak her in!
