Missionary Training Center and Departure

Mission President Training Seminar at the Provo Utah MTC
 June 22-27 2013
Our three daughters Tia Marie, Taysia Kai, and Tahlia Mae delivered us to the MTC and stayed for our setting apart by Elder L. Tom Perry of the Quorum of the Twelve and
 Elder Zwick of the First Quorum of the Seventy. 
What a beautiful experience.

MTC Training
We received the most amazing training from:
  • President Thomas S Monson
  • Quorum of the Twelve (Entire)
  • First Quorum of the Seventy
  • Presiding Bishopric
  • MTC staff
“You may sometimes be tempted to say, ‘Will my influence make any difference? I am just one. Will my service affect the work that dramatically?’ I testify to you that it will. You will never be able to measure your influence for good.” 
—President Thomas S. Monson

Our spiritual "bucket" has been filled to capacity and we feel privileged and blessed to have such training and association with witnesses of The Lord Jesus Christ. The MTC has treated us with such love and kindness- making great effort to meet any need (including retrieving, having fixed and returning before noon Andy's destroyed glasses) and feeding us like Kings!

Leaving for The Mexico Pachuca Mission 27 June 2013
Left the MTC @ 0430 for Salt Lake City Airport

Beautiful flowers in the Presidents office welcoming us to Pachuca. 
It was so heartfelt and thoughtful- we were truly touched.


  1. Congratulations on your new calling. Thank you so much for sharing this blog! As a parent it is fun to see the new changes and leadership for our missionary. I know Elder Beesley is looking forward to meeting you today. Thank you for serving and loving our missionaries while they are away from home.
    With Love,
    Scott & Melissa Shriber

  2. WoW! I was in the Mexico City East mission from 1988-1990. Pachuca was part of our mission, along with Tulancingo, Huauchinango, and Tula. The Lord's work has truly been hastened. Congratulations on a new mission.
