As missionaries, we add our voices to those prophets who have declared the message of salvation as with a "trump of God", or as "one speaking out of the dust", to help bring souls unto Christ. May their voices continue to echo through the ages, declaring the gospel, "till it has sounded in every ear, till the purposes of God shall be accomplished, and the Great Jehovah shall say the work is done".

Mission Tour with Elder Larry R. Lawrence: 10 &11 Dec. 2014

On these two days the mission had a Mission Tour. We all got together and Elder Larry R. Lawrence of the Second Quorum of the Seventy and his wife Laurel Lawrence gave a training. It was a wonderful time and we enjoyed the training and visit from them both. We learned a lot about who we are and why we are out here on missions. We thank them both for coming and bringing their wonderful spirit with them.
