WE ARE A MISSION WITH A CULTURE OF
In Nov. on 2013 President Alba and I attended a Mission President's seminar. There we spent 3 days with 29 other mission presidents and their wives, many of the Seventy and Elder and Sister Ballard. It was an event that we will never forget. The windows of heaven were opened and revelation seemed to pour down upon us all. Dear Elder Ballard...such an incredible force for righteousness, led us step by step every day. He has given this mission the challenge to lead the world in High Expectations... for this mission, for us and for our missionaries. He has given the charge to set our sights higher, become closer to God, to live more obediently and to set high goals. But mostly to have more faith that it can be accomplished and that our missionaries are not only capable but were prepared, chosen and sent here to do it.
We, in the California Santa Rosa Mission now unite to bring forth the blessings of heaven. Our eyes look to heaven for directions. Our hearts are sealed to this work. Our souls are ready and willing to do whatever it takes to succeed. We are His.
