March 27, 2015

                                           Pointing to New Zealand on the map in the MTC

                       Below are the Harrison's, the Saline's, Sister Payne and Sister Williams

This is our District and 2 of our teachers, Brothers Rowe and Teuscher  

What is our purpose as missionaries?
"Invite others to come unto Christ by helping them receive the restored gospel through faith in Jesus Christ and His Atonement, repentance, baptism, receiving the gift of the Holy Ghost, and enduring to the end." (Preach My Gospel)

Craig and I entered the Missionary Training Center last Monday and we spent a week re-learning how to listen, share, ask, invite, care and love. There was laughter, tears, smiles, friendship, testimonies, photos and lots of food. We're excited to move on to apply all of this and to serve.

We were able to come home each night to sleep in our own beds and also spend more time with the kids, and now we have the weekend to pack and say a few more goodbyes. I'm worried my suitcases will be over 50#s and I'll have to eliminate things I will really need. We fly to Auckland Monday, March 30th! Yikes!

"Lift up your heart and rejoice, for the hour of your mission is come; and your tongue shall be loosed, and you shall declare glad tidings of great joy unto this generation." D&C 31:3


  1. Love you both!! I cannot wait to see how your testimony goes as you serve in New Zealand!

  2. Looking forward to hearing about all of your mission experiences! Embrace it and have the time of your life!
