We are extraordinarily blessed to welcome another Senior Couple – Elder and Sister Murray from (where else, since our other two Senior Couples are also from here!) IDAHO – to be specific – Idaho Falls.
Elder and Sister Murri arrived Feb. 14 and have been assigned to the St. Johns Stake – in the eastern part of the mission. Pres. Burgoyne, St. Johns Stake President, has assigned them to a ward and has given them free reign to visit and teach and invite.
We invited the Murri’s to come to transfers in March and assume duties running the kitchen. They cooked, heated, cleaned and hosted the 16 arriving missionaries. Elder Murri prepared some from-scratch gravy for the first night’s dinner that was a-m-a-z-i-n-g!
They also attended the training meetings where the new trainers are given instruction on how to train – and the subsequent meeting where the new missionaries are paired with their new companions.
They’ve already made an impact in the St. Johns stake! I’m getting “thank you”s from the stake presidency. But, their greatest desire – and sole focus – is to bring souls to Christ. This is a couple that knows this simple invitation combined with His love, brings miracles.
We thank their children and grandchildren for sharing them with us.
