Departing Temple Trip {February 20, 2015}

Dear Brother and Sister Gale,

Attached is a picture of your missionary from our departing missionary temple trip. We have truly enjoyed serving with her.  Her testimony of the gospel has been evident in every aspect of her service.   We will miss her.

Thank you for supporting and loving your missionary.  We appreciate her service and dedication in the Idaho Pocatello Mission.

With love and appreciation,

President and Sister Brinkerhoff

Hey Hey Heyyyyyyy {Feb 2, 2015}

From the Prez… {February 2014}

Dear Sister Gale,

I am pleased to extend an assignment to you to serve as Senior Companion.  The Lord has placed great trust in you by extending this assignment to you to serve as a leader in the mission. Our expectations for senior companions is as follows:

Strive every day to be exactly obedient to the standards of missionary conduct found in the Missionary Handbook. This includes following the missionary daily schedule.

Have effective personal and companionship study every day.

Be diligent and humble and effective in your work.

Have effective weekly and daily planning sessions including follow the 13 planning guidelines and updating the area book.

Love your companion and foster a spirit of love and unity in the companionship.

Counsel with your companion and make decisions unanimously.

Always remember that central to your purpose is to bring others unto Christ through baptism and confirmation.

It is a wonderful privilege to serve with you.  Remember that the Lord qualifies those whom He calls.  Seek Him and go forward with all your heart, might, mind and strength to bring souls unto Christ.

She has arrived! {August 2013}

Sister Gale has arrived safely in the Idaho Pocatello Mission.  Upon arrival, we had a personal  interview to get further acquainted.
We are hopeful you will write or email letters of encouragement to your missionary weekly so she will continue to feel your love and support as she loses herself in the work.  We encourage your missionary to do the same, focusing on the positive aspects of the mission.
May God bless you as you sacrifice to support this great work.
Faithfully yours,
Marvin T. Brinkerhoff
Mission President
