Pre-mission Preparations

Alexandre one of many volunteers
We have taken advantage of skyping three times a week since December with wonderful language tutors.  Payton McRoberts has been our primary contact, however numerous volunteers from Oregon to Montreal have assisted in helping exploit our french language capabilities.  They have demonstrated extreme patients and have been very kind as we are dusting off the cobwebs of our memory. We are able to spend portions of three weeks in the MTC since December in the Immersion Program.  We were living just like missionaries  and learning just like missionaries.  There is a great spirit in the MTC....and now there are lots of wonderful Sister Missionaries!!

Missionary Tytan
Our grandchildren are so excited about our mission, they want to come with us.  We were able to meet some of the Parents of our fellow missionaries when we spoke in church on the 16th of June.  The Brockbanks and Roths were there, We were told that there are three Missionaries in the MTC right now heading for the D.R.Congo.  We can't wait!!!

  1. Ty still dresses up like a missionary all the time and I had to make him a tag. Thanks for your example. The other day I was trying to teach Tytan only the Savior knows everything so I asked does Mom know everything? No he said. Does Dad? No. Does Grandpa Cook? Yes! I said no he doesn't either. He responded emphatically, yes he does mom!
