November 20, 2016 Missionary Devotional was held at the Puyallup South Stake Center in Puyallup, Washington.  It is always so uplifting to meet together, share testimonies and hear our beautiful missionary choir.  This devotional did not disappoint!!
This is Sister Stanke - she was baptized Oct 8th
Her testimony is firm and her love for the Savior is sure.

This is Brother Devine - he was baptized Oct 2nd
He shared a moving and powerful testimony and told about his conversion.

This is Brother Maske - he was baptized Sep 2015 and his two sons soon followed.
He shared his amazing conversion story and his two sons offered beautiful opening and closing prayers for the devotional.
Practicing - Elder Sumsion, Elder Rex, Elder Samuelsen and Elder Samuels
sang accapella a beautiful rendition of  "Father in Heaven".

We love all of our missionaries in our Washington Federal Way Mission!  We are so thankful for their dedication to Jesus Christ and their desire to be exactly obedient to all that is asked of them.  They are loving and respectful and it is a JOY to be with them!
We wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Will you help us solve this mystery?

We've received this package in the mail that is for an Elder in our mission, but we can't determine which Elder ...

This is the package
We opened it for clues

 These are the only clues in the box - our Elder is known and loved by Hannah!  Does this look familiar to you?  Please help solve this mystery and call Sister Nydegger at the mission office -
 425-413-0769 if you know who this present was sent to.

Also, while we're on the subject of mail....we appreciate all who have sent their Christmas packages!
Remember, the due date is Dec 1st.  We are keeping track of who gets packages so we can provide something for those who don't.  Please indicate on the outside of the package that it's for Christmas.
The missionaries are getting the packages delivered to them the Monday after they arrive at the office.

Please, please, please remember to include a FIRST and last name of the missionary.  We have several missionaries that have the same surname, so when we get mail addressed to Sister Cook we have to determine which Sister Cook it goes to...not always an easy process.

It was time for one of the fleet cars to retire and the mission received a brand new Chevy Malibu that would be assigned to some lucky companionship to drive.  The Elders were hopeful that it would be them!

Elder Nydegger, (a.k.a. "car master" ) and President Rasmussen decided that the new car would go to the companionship that had the cleanest car during Zone inspections but this fact was kept secret from the Elders and Sisters.  After very rigorous examinations of each of the cars in the fleet (59 to be exact)  the office Elders - Elder Rodarte and Elder Samuels along with  Elder Nydegger decided it was a clear choice...Sister Souza and Sister Reed had the cleanest best kept car and  earned the priviledge of driving the new car!

Sister Rasmussen, Sister Reed, Sister Souza and President Rasmussen - delivering the new car.

 Sister Reed, Sister Souza, Elder Rex and Elder Snook (Assistants to the President) - Elders congratulating the Sisters!

Sister Reed and Sister Souza - very happy Sisters!!!!

Sister Souza at the wheel and Sister Reed - sheer JOY!!!!
They are ready to get back to work bringing souls unto Christ!
