History in the Making!

Elders Fronberg and Steiner are first to go to Myranmar

We witnessed history today! The first two "Branch Builders" (aside senior couples) are assigned to Myranmar. Elders Fronberg and Steiner will work with Elder and Sister Hobbs and Elder and Sister Haymore already in Yangon. This is so exciting to see this happen. It is not legal to proselyte, but they can teach those who come to the church house.
Our mission is growing (170) as you can see by the photo. All elders and sisters were invited to this transfer meeting. Many changes were made. I love the energy of transfer meeting. Ayutthaya lost elder Slaughter (sorry to see him go to zone leader) and gained Elder Kettavong. Good things are in store for Ayutthaya!

Here are the newly arrived elders and sisters:

Elder and Sister Brown – Riverton, Utah, assigned to Udorn  
Elder and Sister Ure  - Orem, UT, assigned to ChaingMai
Elder Tamang – California
Elder Boonmee – Riverton, UT
Elder Lingard – Mesa, AZ 
Elder Savage – Provo, UT
Elder Finlayson –North Ogden, UT 
Elder Smith – Lindon, UT            
Elder Baldwin, Concord, CA 
Elder Hales – Orem, UT
Elder Bassett – Layton, UT
Sister Black – Alpine, UT
Elder Burke – North Ogden, UT
Elder Larsen – Fairview, UT
Elder   Cooper - Australia
Elder Lodwick- Nashville, TN 

I probably missed someone or got their hometown wrong! Each of these elders and sisters are eager to start to work. Please say a special prayer for the Thailand Bangkok mission's success.

  • Sister Allyson Adams
