Here's an email from Tad's mission president after he arrived.
We are happy to announce that Elder Tobar has safely arrived in our mission. The night of his arrival, we enjoyed getting to know him during dinner at the mission home, and we can tell that he is going to be a great missionary. We are grateful for the sacrifices you and your missionary have made that allow him to be here. We pray that our Lord Jesus Christ will pour out his blessings upon your family. We are very happy to have your son with us and we know he will bless the lives of many people here in the great country of El Salvador.
He has been assigned to the area of Magdalena in the Chalchuapa Stake. His companion is Elder Rodriquez from Honduras. He is a determined, hardworking missionary who is diligent in the Lord´s work. We expect to see great success from this companionship.
