Missions are Fun

A missionary is someone who leaves his or her home for a little while so others can have their families forever.

Curious about Mormons? Go to the source and find real people at mormon.org--read what they believe and have live chats if you wish! (an official Church website)

Or, go to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, official web site: lds.org.

Our Mission Scriptures

Our Mission Scriptures:

"Oh, that I were an angel, and could have the wish of mine heart . . . Yea, I would declare unto every soul, as with the voice of thunder, repentance and the plan of redemption, that they should repent and come unto our God, that there might not be more sorrow upon all the face of the earth." Alma 29:1-2 (Book of Mormon)

" . . . be ye steadfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord." 1 Corinthians 15:58 (Bible)

God Is Our Father & Our Last District Meeting

The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:  And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.  Romans 8:17

Yes, all missions must come to an end at some point.  All the struggles, the miracles, the choice experiences, and the spiritual growth and knowledge doesn't have to end when a mission is over.  We can continue to help others understand they have a Father in Heaven who want us all home someday.   Fortunately we have Jesus Christ's teachings and ancient and modern prophets to guide us.
Our district leader is on the left.  He is from Muldova, and his companion is from Russia.
Our last supper
Beautiful day at the temple
Today we took the last pictures and enjoyed the sun all the while reminding ourselves these are not good byes if we work hard to keep the commandments and endure in faithfulness throughout our lives on earth.  We CAN see each other again some day and live as one big happy family together, since we are all Heavenly Father's children and he has a place prepared for all who love and serve him.
