Today I received exciting news about the area where I served a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The Utah Salt Lake City South Mission is going to be split! The original boundaries are 4500 South down to Draper ( point of the mountain) and  east to west is mountain to mountain. A very small mission. Oh and Park City/Kamas was also in our mission. but now as you can see from the picture below it will be different. That means there is a huge need for more missionaries to teach if the church has split it. 

I am so excited to hear about this and make me want to go on a mission all over again.  I had the best 18 months teaching in Spanish. I am so thankful that I got to serve with the most amazing women and we had a blast along the way.  I love reading through my journals and seeing how much the Lord blessed me and those around me. I am so grateful for the members in every area I served and for the people that allowed us to come in to their homes and teach them about the restored gospel. 

I love that I can share these experiences with Kent and relate to him.   I am so grateful my brother in law Spencer and my cousin Moy are serving missions right now.

I will never forget a wise counsel once said by our mission president. He recounted the story of the prophet Abinadi teaching the people of King Noah found in Mosiah 13. Abinadi told the wicked priest that whatever they do to him after he delivers the Lords message, will be a type and shadow of things to come. President Risenmay told us that how we treat our mission and what we do with the Lord's message will be a type and shadow of how the rest of our lives will be after the mission. That has always stayed with me and helped me to live up to what is expected of me.  I could go on and on  so I will just end with saying that I am so excited to one day serve a mission with Kent. 

 Here are some pictures I found from the mission.

Every transfer the sister in the mission got together at the President's home for some Crepes.

Here are some pictures of some of my companions.

Thanks for posting this! I had no idea they were splitting the mission! the pictures bring back good times. It's awesome that you've kept missionary work such a big part of your life, you're an inspiration as always! PS we still need to get together!
