Dear Mrs. Martin:
First, let me thank Annetta for the beautiful picture of the Baby Jesus. I placed the picture in my office. Please give your daughter my regards.
I have worked for the General Conference for almost twenty years. It is not a place as described in your letter (i.e. given over to kingly powers, etc.) I wonder of the basis for your conclusions? What firsthand knowledge do you have of the dedicated people here who seek to do God's will?
I respect your beliefs and convictions. I will certainly keep your views in mind as I fulfill my responsibility of protecting the integrity of the Church's good name. I thank you for your continued prayers. Each day I ask God for His guidance and wisdom.
