Dear Sisters and Elders:
What a great feeling to be in the greatest Mission in the world! And to be serving with the greatest missionaries in the world! What an honor it has been to serve alongside of you! I will be forever grateful for all I have learned from you in ways to become more like the Savior. The Gardners will be in the best company of missionaries ever in this mission when they arrive! May your prayers be with them as they adjust to mission life. As with you, it will be the hardest and yet the most rewarding experience of their lives so far. "There is no more compelling work than this, nor any which brings greater satisfaction...The Lord will reward and richly bless you as you humbly and prayerfully serve Him. More happiness awaits you than you have ever experienced as you labor among His children" ( PMG pg. v.).
Our prayers and hearts will always be a part of the people and missionaries in "The Nebraska Omaha Mission". We love you. And now I will invite all of you to "search, ponder and pray 30 minutes every day in the Book of Mormon" so as to enable the Atonement to be active in your life and in the lives of those you teach. More miracles and blessings await those who are obedient than ever before. Seek after those miracles for they are alive and well in this mission! And this because of your great faith. May God's grace be forever with you! You will be for--ever in our prayers! Have a GREAT MISSION!!

P.P.S. From Sister Weston: It truly has been an honor to serve with some of the finest souls on earth, the missionaries of the Nebraska Omaha Mission. You are indeed, No Ordinary Missionaries!!!! Thank you for your examples of faith, hope, and charity--I have learned from you what those words mean. As you knock on doors and talk with everyone you meet, know that the Savior of the world stands beside you as your constant friend and companion. And don't forget that every day won't be perfect, but there are perfect moments in every day--tender mercies given freely by our loving Heavenly Father that we might experience joy. I love you!!! You will always be ours, we will always be yours in this great NOM family. This work is true!! Stay the course, keep the faith, be happy, and carry on until the great news of the gospel has been sounded in every ear in the Nebraska Omaha Mission!!!!
