Our Missionary Mothers

This year for Mother's Day, we pay tribute to our missionary mothers, who both served a mission in their later years.

Beverly's mother, Ora, served as a missionary (with Beverly's dad), in the Nauvoo, IL Mission in 1979.

Her daughters who served missions include: Dixie (Franco-Belgium Mission) and later with husband Terry (mission presidents, Germany Leipzig Mission); Kaye with husband Glen(Frieberg Germany temple); Beverly with husband Scott (Peru Lima East Mission).

Scott's mother, Ardell, served as a tour guide on Temple Square in Salt Lake City, UT in 1982, as a missionary with Scott's dad (England London Mission, 1984-1985), and (after her first husband's death) with her 2nd husband (England Birmingham Mission, 1992-1993).

Her children who served missions include: Dean (California Los Angeles Mission); Sharon with her husband Lin (CCM, Sao Paulo, Brazil; New York New York South Mission); Scott (Andes Mission) and later with his wife Beverly (Peru Lima East Mission); and Kurt (Texas Dallas Mission).

Thank you, our mothers, for setting an example of missionary work for all of us.

That's pretty cool if you ask me! Hopefully someday I will become a "missionary mother" and serve somewhere with Nate.

Beautiful examplary mothers! What a lovely post. By the way Scott, Mom looked just wonderful when we saw her the first time on Saturday. She just right up from her bed and hugged us. On Mother's Day she was a bit more tired, but was doing fine.

Sorry to miss you call on Sunday - we were in Church.
