Our Missionaries

Casey is headed to San Diego, California Mission and is currently in the MTC and loving every minute of it. He has prepared (other than financially) for this day since he was a little boy and will make a fantastic missionary. Erin works at the MTC and so she gets to see him just a bit longer than the rest of us.




Adrian received her call two days before Christmas and was shocked when she opened her call and read she would be serving in the Houston Texas East Mission. Not only that, she will be learning Spanish like her older sister Erin. Of all the destinatioins she had tried to imagine in her mind, she never once thought it would be Houston Texas. One man in our community moved to Hawaii from nearby Houston. He told Adrian "If I had a house in Houston and a house in Hell I would rent out the house in Houston and live in Hell." On a positive note, he also told her that she will not find any nicer people than in Texas. Adrian will make a fantastic sister because she loves everyone and also has prepared for some time to serve. She has a strong testimony and is anxious to share it.

My nephew just came home from the Houston Mission in December. Elder Lybbert. Loved it! Adrian and Erin you look so beautiful! And I think it is amazing that once again you have double missionaries. And Erin at the MTC! Your younger children have been given such a great example. I hope our first four go on missions! Good luck Casey and Adrian. We are excited for you.

Hey Laurie, thanks so much for hosting the open house thingy. It was really nice. Adam says Casey is on the floor below him and they see each other at meals and sometimes gym. I'm so glad Adam had such a great friend in Casey and that they could fly up together.
