Letter from the Mission President

Dear Family of missionaries,

We are now just catching up with long needed emails from December.
This past few weeks have been so wonderful as we celebrated the Christmas season sharing the joy of the birth of Jesus Christ. We had the opportunity to participate in the “He is the Gift” Christmas Initiative by the church to let the world know of the birth of the Savior. In our mission alone we distributed over 36,000 pass-a-long cards and invited all we could to share in the greatest gift of the season. Many people were blessed by receiving this gift.

Our mission was incredibly blessed by having your missionary arrive in the mission.   They brought with them an energy and excitement to the work and to the missionaries serving here.   After prayerful consideration they were assigned to training missionaries and sent to their fields of labor here in Northern California.

We love them.

My responsibility is to teach, train, guide and love and protect them.  I promise to you that I will do my very best to accomplish this great assignment.  Our mission vision statement is to “Connect Others to Heaven” and we start with ourselves and are developing each day an inward power of prayer.

This new year will be one of progress and happiness and joy as we serve side-by-side as missionaries.

If you ever have any questions or thoughts or concerns about your missionary,  please feel free to call me. I may not answer the phone right then, but leave a voice message and I will return your call.

Again, we are so blessed to have your missionary. We love them, we pray for them, we serve along side with them, and we will treasure them.
Attached is are files with the arriving group of missionaries, and also a group picture with the new missionaries and their trainers.

You should receive emails from us so please confirm that we have the best email to send home details and updates from the California Roseville Mission

Best regards,
President Michael F. Marston
California Roseville Mission
