On Monday, October 12th, Elder and Sister Jex arrived to join the Arizona Scottsdale Mission MLS Missionary Couples. We are soooo pleased to have them! MLS missionaries do strengthening of members by joining local leaders in activation efforts and working in other areas as requested by the local Stake President.
Elder and Sister Jex come from Centerville, Utah where Elder Jex worked as a podiatrist and Sister Jex raised 4 beautiful children. Elder Jex served a full time mission as a young man to France/Belgium and together they served a senior couple mission to the Washington DC North Mission finishing in 2012-13.
President Williams, Show Low Arizona Stake President, will be the Stake President that Elder and Sister Jex will work with. He is super missionary minded and this promises to be a blessing for local activation efforts as Elder and Sister Jex have the perfect personalities for activation! Persistent, but lovingly so. They will also be working with the Cibecue Apache Branch on their weekly Addiction Recovery Program.
In speaking of the rescue effort, President Monson recently said, “Since becoming President of the Church I have felt an increased urgency for us to be engaged in this rescue effort. …There is yet much to do in this regard, and I encourage all to continue to reach out to rescue.” (Reach Out to Rescue)
Welcome Elder and Sister Jex!
