Most of the young people who serve a mission have been learning since they were 18 months old. Beginning in nursery, where they learn to sit quiet, say opening and closing prayers in front of the class, sing songs, share toys with other class mates and learn scripture stories. Once a week, every year, they keep learning... line up on line. Then the day comes when they are ready to share what they have been blessed with others. As with many of the Chuuk Elders that served here over the years, they continue to bless the lives of the people they have grown to love and had to leave. Good bless the missionaries!
