We (Richard & Gay) returned from Ogden and grabbed the mail. There was no letter from Trev as we had received his letter for the week yesterday, Friday but there was an envelope from the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles. Upon opening it we found it to be a copy of a letter sent to Trevor at the MTC from Elder Perry.
Dear Elder Hansen:
I had a nice letter from your mother informing me that we were together a few weeks ago when I had an opportunity to be with the great missionaries at the MTC.
You are in for an exciting period of your life. In this day and age so many are growing up without having the opportunity of being blessed with communicating one-on-one with people from different parts of the world. This will set you apart from the ones who just use "thumbs" to communicate through the internet. You will be learning a great deal about human nature and how to encourage people and lift them to do better in their lives.
I know you are going to enjoy your mission. I sincerely hope that you continue to study the Book of Mormon and use those glorious scriptures in converting others to the gospel of Jesus Christ.
L. Tom Perry
We were surprised. Trev had asked me (Gay) to please find a way to thank him for the way he had blessed Trev when he came to talk. I had only used Trev's first name once and Elder Perry took the time to write him and have him found at the MTC.
