Russian Missionaries

We have several senior missionaries who will be serving in Russia. It's the only country in our group with duplicates. Of course it is a very large country. The first couple Elder and Sister Burnham (man with red tie) are going to serve in Vladivostok. It's on the far eastern border of Russia near Japan. They live in Gilbert. Their son and daughter live in Megan's ward. Small world - I just found that out today. The couple in the middle Elder and Sister Huffaker are going to serve in Novosibirsk. They were in our District. The last couple Elder and Sister Williams - will be serving in Samara. It's pretty exciting to see how many couples they are sending to Russia. Some of them have heard from their Mission Presidents who have told them it's 50 below in their area. You want to talk about being cold. YIKES - yet all of them are so excited about their call and working so hard to learn the language. It's amazing.

  1. That is really cool! I think the couple from Gilbert might be the parents of one of the counselors in our stake presidency. You will have to ask them. Glad you are having a good experience and that you are doing good.
