Dear Mr. and Mrs. Frank A. Bruno,

Sister Nielson and I are delighted to let you know that your daughter, Sister Flora Bruno, has arrived in Taiwan safely and is doing well. We had the opportunity of spending the day following her arrival in orientation, training, and getting to know her. The next day we had a wonderful lunch with the new missionaries and their training companions. Sister Bruno has been assigned to work with Sister Amy Hill in the Zhongli 1st Ward.

I had the opportunity of interviewing Sister Bruno and am very impressed with her desire to serve. Thank you for sending us such a wonderful young woman. Truly, she is a fine example of an enthusiastic servant of the Lord. We send our love to you and promise to watch after your daughter as though she were our own.

The missionary work is focused. Missionaries should write home once a week to stay in close touch. In addition, I strongly suggest that you diligently write weekly to keep in touch with your missionary as well. If an emergency arises please call the Mission Office (Tel: 011-866-2-2393-3285 direct from the US) and leave a message, or contact us through the mission email address (

The monthly money that the missionaries receive is sufficient for their needs. Please do not send extra money for your daughter unless requested. If money needs to be sent to your daughter, we suggest you open a bank account and send your missionary an ATM or debit card. This provides fast and easy access to money from the many teller machines available in Taiwan.

May the Lord bless you and your family through the service of your missionary daughter.

Yours Sincerely,

President Norman S. Nielson
Taiwan Taipei Mission
