|Elder Odland has been Called to Serve as a Trainer|
What a sweet letter Elder Odland received from his Mission President, President Vest.
After only being on his mission now for 5 1/2 months, Elder John Odland has been called to
serve as a Trainer.
President Vest says...."There is no calling that arises above Trainer.
Training a new missionary is a position of sacred trust from the Lord and your Mission President."
He told him that he will be strengthened for this calling for, "Whom God calls, God qualifies."
He told him to, "Remember the parents of this new missionary placed in his care, have prayed with faith that their son's first companion would be
obedient, engaged in the work, and an exemplary missionary.
Remember the words of Mormon
in Third Nephi Chapter 5 Verse 13,
"Behold I am a disciple of Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
I have been called of Him to declare his word among the people,
that they might have everlasting life."
Trust in the Lord with all thy heart and go forward with faith and accomplish this sacred duty to which you have been called."
As Elder Odland's mother, I know he is up to this great calling.
for he is
engaged in the work,
an exemplary missionary.
Congratulations Elder John Odland
May the Lord Bless You Always
