Washington Seattle Mission

Hey moms,

I have put together a blog for the moms (families) of lds missionaries serving in the Washington Seattle Mission. I want to invite you all to visit this blog often. Please feel free to post pictures, updates and fun information about your missionaries or the area they are serving in . We can use this as an addition to the email list and really get a closeness with the families of all of the missionaries serving in Seattle. I would love to have any suggestions you may have to increase the effectiveness and usability of this site. Thanks all..

Newest Elders - fresh from the MTC

I hope it's alright I'm adding a post - I'm one of the newest missionary moms to the Seattle Mission.

My son, Elder Chal Petersen (from South Jordan, Utah - on the right) just arrived in Seattle last Tuesday, December 14th.  His companion/trainer is Elder Rasmussen (from Parowan, Utah - on the left).  They are assigned to the downtown Bellevue area, and will be working with a family ward and a Young Single Adult ward.  Elder Rasmussen looks like a great missionary - and I'm so grateful.

I thought some of us (newer) moms would enjoy seeing a few pictures of this group while at the MTC.  (It looks like he is still getting used to his camera)  I wish I could pair names, hometowns, and faces - but you know how few details our missionaries give us ; )   Two of these elders have stayed in the MTC a bit longer for medical reasons.

They look like they are full of life and enthusiasm.  My other five (grown) kids all commented that they remind them of a boy scout troop in Sunday clothes!  That will change, I'm sure.

If you see your son here, please identify him (and any others you recognize).  Hope to hear from a few other new moms out there.

Yeah Anne!!
Thank you for posting such great pictures of our newest missionaries. They look like a strong bunch ready to enter the Lords army. I was so glad to hear how great Elder Petersen is doing. Sounds like he has jumped right in and working hard. Hope you had a nice talk with him on the phone today. I know we sure did with Elder Suder. Feel free to post anytime you would like.. the more pictures the better:)
