She has touched, lifted, and blessed many lives.

Merry Christmas to ALL! Y'all!

Oh how we love ALL the missionaries!
Present and Past.
We so enjoy the MJM Quotes, the MJM Reunion, and other sites started and dedicated to the Mississippi Jackson Missionaries!
We love any notice we can get about each of you who have returned home.  We feel blessed that you love those you've served with and that you're concerned about missionaries still serving.
That really is a blessing. 
However, you, like their families, are limited to communication with them through letters or a brief email.  But you, unlike their families, don't get two phone calls a year with them.
Please don't call missionaries who are still serving.
As we are seeking to increase our faith by strengthening the four pillars of faith as described in Preach My Gospel, please help us all with the pillar of obedience.  It matters.
We love you.  We will be forever grateful to our Heavenly Father for the blessing of knowing and serving with each missionary here and ever here.  We will love you and cheer for you forever!
We join you in gratitude, praise and adoring our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
We love Him.
We want to please Him.
Merry Christmas!

Finishing Up Interviews December 2014





 Late afternoon we were heading towards Gulfport and saw this cloud.
How many pictures of sky and clouds do you think missionaries have taken?
These skies are big and beautiful!


How we love these and all the missionaries who have passed through the MJM!
We couldn't be more blessed.

Continuing Interviews


 ...we need a little Christmas....

Good-bye, Sweet Sister! Thank You for Coming!

 This beautiful and very sweet sister struggled with her health before she came to us.  She has been valient in her efforts to get well and stay in the mission.  We hope she will recover quickly at home.  We are very grateful and glad that she came to the Mississippi Jackson Mission.  We love her!  Her companions and each person who know her love her! 
Get Well Soon!


It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Time for Mission Leadership Training

The mission leadership has learned about Councils.
There is power in Councils.
Big decisions that affect a lot of people are made,
not lightly, but with discussion and presenting many views.
our goals CAN be met.

 We are so proud of these leaders.
We love them like crazy!
When MLC is over, clean up is quick.  Transfer Vans are waiting to return Elders to their areas.
It's an impressive process and group of missionaries.
