Gratitude- A Full-Time Mission

Members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints have a life-long commission to serve others and help them grow closer to the Lord, Jesus Christ. This mandate is woven into our daily patterns of life. In addition, some may have the privilege to serve a full-time mission as circumstances permit.

Michelle and I are very grateful for our calling, from modern-day prophets, to serve an 18 month, full-time mission for the Lord in the Pennsylvania Philadelphia Mission (Spanish-speaking). We thank the Lord, family members and friends for their support as we begin this blessed phase of life. We have been asked to share a message, as we depart on our mission, by speaking in our sacrament meeting at 1 p.m. on Sunday January 22nd at 7401 Smoke Ranch Road in Las Vegas. All are invited to attend.

    Oh Kevin, Michelle! We have ward conference that day and I especially will be out visiting families in conjunction with that! I so want to be there and support you two and your families! Your lives will only get busier, but can we squeeze into a little crevasse of that time for visit and maybe a meal? Love you two!

April and I are so very excited for the two of you to go forth and share the love of the Gospel and of our dear Savior that is so deeply woven into the very fibers of your beings. We look forward to periodic updates from you throughout your mission. My retirement is still planned for late this year, afterwhich we will be preparing to go and do likewise.
