Dear Sister Robinson,
We are the Sr. Couple serving in Kota Kinabalu.  We have been here 6 months and have the privilege of serving with your son. He has only been with us a couple months and now has been called to serve as an Assistant to Pres. Mains. He will leave KK and fly to Singapore to fill his new assignment in 2 days and we will miss him very much.  
Even though we are serving a humanitarian mission here, we see and interact with the 8 Elders in our city almost daily.  Elder Robinson is an exceptional missionary!  He is an exceptional person!  His calm influence, his straight honesty and kind ways win him friends wherever he goes.  He has a gentleness and faith that attracts people who are wandering.  What a blessing he has been in our area.  He will be an awesome leader in this mission and everyone agrees. 
Thank you for sharing him with us half way across the world.  He is willing to play the organ at church on a seconds notice. He also looks for people to sit with who are alone or appear confused or shy.  People feel safe around him.  He serves like the Savior would serve. He is also very thoughtful.  He did a pile of dishes today after our district meeting and lunch.   (Good job, Mom!)
May your family always be blessed by the sacrifice you are making to keep him here and live without him there.  As you know a mission is hard work physically, emotionally and spiritually.  He is a very fine young man with such a bright future.    (pics attached)
