Small World

This is Elder Gerber He is from Centerville, Utah.  Rolling Hills ward, Canyon View Stake. Our home stake and he lives in the neighboring ward.

He is called to serve in the Micronesia Guam Mission, same as us, however he will be serving on the island of Kosrae with the Senior couple Elder and Sister Eldredge.  The official language of Kosrae is Kosraean.  However the English language may also be used in government discourse.   The people on the islands prefer speaking in their native tongue.  Lessons will be taught in Kosraean.   Missionary work essentially is a priesthood responsibility, but all of us are the Lord’s authorized servants on the earth and are missionaries at all times and in all places and all things.

We may or may not ever serve on the same island but it is pretty great he was called in the same mission as us.  We haven't met him and we don't know his family and we were told by others he was coming but it's still great that we have someone we can call our own.  Small World!
