On 09 March 2014, Stake President Brent Pulsipher, assisted by Bishop Merrick, set apart Sonja and I as Missionaries to serve in the Bangkok Thailand Mission. We became Elder and Sister Moleff. However, our mission does not officially begin until we enter the Missionary Training Center (MTC) in Provo Utah on 24 March 2014.
On 14 March 2014 we left our home in the able hands of our son-in-law Don, our daughter Rebecca, and grandson River to go to Driggs Idaho ( where daughter Audrey and Carl live) and Victor Idaho (where daughter Heidi and Roger live). On Sunday, 16 March 2014, Carl gave a name and blessing to Deegan.
On 18 March 2014 we left Victor Idaho in the midsts of a snowstorm to drive to Provo, Utah to attend "Immersion" training in the Thai language for 3-days starting on Wednesday 19 March and ending Friday 21 March 2014. On Tuesday evening 18 March we checked into the La Quinta Inn & Suites in Orem Utah on University Parkway and left on Saturday 22 March 2014 for early check-in into the Provo Senior Missionary Training Center (SMTC). The food and lodging costs for Immersion is born by the senior missionary. The Immersion administration costs is born by the Church.
