Monday--Missionary Moments


President Baker with the missionaries teaching them to be 'Outstanding in their field...'

One of my favorite things we do all month is feed the missionaries. Once a month we feed them all breakfast. We have 14 missionaries serving here in Moses Lake. They are called to the Spokane, Washington Mission and for now are serving in Moses Lake. The Church of Jesus Christ has approximately 53,000 missionaries serving in 348 missions around the world. Our son Quinn is serving in the Fiji, Suva Mission with a visa for a small island called Vanuatu. Quinn has friends in Mexico, Texas, Nevada, California, Spain, and Arizona. Each time these young men come I'm impressed with their dedication and service to the people of Moses Lake, the The Church of Jesus Christ and to their Heavenly Father. I am grateful for their labor and for their sacrifice and for the sacrifice of their families. I know that as I serve them that someone in Vanuatu will serve my son and so on and so on.

Thanks for such a great post, Lori. I appreciate the way you can sum everything up. I love the visual for the lesson, too.

Ty comes home in 5 weeks! I can hardly wait.

Your husband is to creative. I love this post. Everytime I hear that Quinn is in Suva Figi, it make my heart skip a beat. That is where my parents served almost 20 years ago. A lot has changed since then, mainly, they have a temple. I think my parent's work helped bring that along. What exciting times.
