We Love Missionaries!

A Visit from Our Family

These big boys and little girls came for a short visit.
The big boys are bigger than we remembered.  So are the little girls.
This is the first time we've met our youngest grandson.
We are so blessed!!!!

Some of our missionaries have worn a cool boot like this!
She is recovering nicely and doesn't seem to mind the boot at all.
.....but she doesn't have to ride a bike.


Quick tour of the Mission Office and then all too soon,
they head back home.
Did that really happen or was it the best dream ever?

Thank you so much for all the extras you do
for me and for all the missionaries!
I love you.
The Missionaries love you.
The Mission is blessed abundantly to have you serving in the office. 
 Best, healthy treats ever!

Oh boy! It's Interviews!


Another powerful Mission Leader Council was held.
These leaders and all their predecessors have accomplished a lot during this last year!
They looked over the achievements, made some adjustments, calculated expectations, and set new goals for 2015.
It's going to be another great and growing year in the MJM!
We love these leaders and all who have come before them.
We are blessed to watch them grow into dynamic and very caring leaders.

Homeward Bound

We can't thank enough each one of these awesome missionaries for the time and dedication they've given during their time in the Mississippi Jackson Mission.
They have truly given their HEART, MIGHT, MIND, AND STRENGTH.
They have been dedicated and diligent.
We are so grateful!
We will love you forever!

A marvelous assistant concludes his faithful service and returns home.
He has been on the forefront of many changes to the duties and responsibilities of the assistants and he has done an outstanding job along with his companions.  This mission is better because he came.
We love him!


The Office missionaries bring snacks, water, treats for missionaries to munch on while they wait for the transfer vans to arrive, and to grab and go when the vans get here. 
They take such good care of the missionaries!  Thank you!

The Transfer vans pull up, luggage is off-loaded and reloaded to the correct vehicles to be transported with these extraordinary missionaries to new areas.
We circle up, sing a song, say a prayer,

Drivers (faithful, tireless, generous drivers, aka office missionaries too) come to the middle of the circle, names are called, goodbyes are quickly said, one more time, and off they go!

Beautiful, handsome, wonderful missionaries spreading the Light, bringing the gospel
to those prepared and willing to listen;
Blessing lives!
We love them all!
