Welcome President & Sister McDonough

We greeted President & Sister McDonough at the Mission Office and had a little party with the Office Staff.  Sister Miles organized a delicious lunch for them.  After lunch we took them to the Mission Home and oriented them to the mission.  After an hour or so they took us to the airport where we said our final good byes, by the end of the night we were in the arms of our loving family.

Gift from the Jackson Branch

Sister James has been working so hard and created this beautiful quilt as a reminder of our time with the Jackson Branch.  We love President and Sister James!  They contribute so much to the church and the members of the Jackson Branch.

Permission to Visit The Baton Rouge Temple

As our time in the South was quickly ending, we were honored to get permission to leave the mission for a day and attend the temple sealing of a former missionary who married a sweet young lady from Hattiesburg.  Best Wishes Mr. & Mrs. Tonumaipea!!

A Gift from our Missionaries

Each of the missionaries wrote us a sweet thank you letter and secretly gave it to the Assistants along with all of these reminders of the South.  The Assistants surprised us with our gift.  We loved it and will always treasure our memories of the wonderful missionaries in our mission.
