Missionaries and Their Families

Occasionally parents come to meet their missionaries to return home, (especially in the nice weather seasons) or they come back to visit at a later time. It is a joy to meet family members and share in the joy of their missionary returning with honor!

Our First-Born Elders Depart!

We met these Elders at the MTC before we all arrived in Korea together in July of 2007. In fact, we met Elder Frost before he went to the MTC at a mission reunion that we both attended. How quickly the time for their departure has arrived! We will miss these wonderful, happy souls, until we meet again!

Elder and Sister Evans' Mission Tour

We were delighted to have extra zone conferences scheduled this week. We drank from a fire hydrant of wonderful training from Elder David F. Evans, our Asia North Area President. He is a master scholar of the scriptures and kept everyone actively engaged all day long. Everyone went home all fired to hone their finding skills to "a better way". Sister Evans also touched our hearts with her wonderful, kind words. What an angel she is!
