Elder Jenkins completed his mission August 28, 2017. He served valiantly as an assistant for the last several months. He has been a joy and a delight to have in this mission. He is respected by his fellow missionaries as being trustworthy, thoughtful, unselfish and an outstanding missionary who exemplified great skill and strength of testimony in fulfilling his missionary purpose. We will be forever grateful to have known him!
Elder White completed his mission the last day of July. We will miss him and his enthusiasm for the work. Good luck Elder White!
August 11, 2017 we had to say goodbye to the Bakers and the Espinozas. These two couples served as MLS missionaries. The Bakers, from St. George were with us for 12 months. The Espinozas, from Bremerton, WA, have been here for 18 mos. The wards they served in will really miss these two outstanding couples. And we will too.

President & Sister Robinson have been out in the mission field for 14 months and it continues to get more and more difficult to say goodbye to these young wonderful missionaries as they complete their missions. This group of 14 represent what is wonderful, noble and inspiring in this great force of young missionaries. We love them like they are our own. We are so proud of what they have accomplished in 18-24 months and who they have become. Well done to this faithful and courageous group.

Fine young elders!!
We received 18 new missionaries in August. They come from all over the world. We are grateful for their desire to serve the Lord and be worthy instruments in His hands to share His message.
Sorry this is so late posting but here are the pictures of zone conferences held in July 2017. See if you can find your missionary.

Above are the 3 Mountain zones: Snowflake, Show Low, and White Mountain.
Above is the Scottsdale and Paradise Valley zones.
And lastly is the Maricopa and Pinnacle zones.
Elder Garvey is one of our finest missionaries. He actually extended his mission a couple of weeks to continue to serve the people in the Scottsdale Mission. We will miss his wonderful smile and easy going attitude. He learned Spanish so well that he was often complimented he sounded like a native Spanish speaker. Well done Elder Garvey. We wish you the best.
