This week we received a telephone call from Sister Russell. She is the wife of President Russell, mission president of the Oregon Eugene Mission. Emily will be serving in the Medford area (the same area where Darrell served for the final area of his mission). Her companion is Sister Schrecengost.
I am doing great, loving Oregon! There were 12 new missionaries that came to Oregon this week. I am in the Central Point (Medford) area. My first night in Oregon we went out with the other missionaries there, I got sent with the Chinese sisters, luckily they didn’t speak Chinese the entire time! We stayed in the mission home the first night and we were assigned our companions and our areas the second day. We went to a baptism the second night in Central Point, he is from a part member family.
I am loving the area and the people I hope everyone else is doing great and I would love to hear from everyone!
We also received a text message from a member in Emily’s area. She had dinner with the family, and they sent us a picture. We are so grateful for members who help care for our missionary while she is away!
