The Church Of Jesus Christ Of Latter-day Saints Introduce 2 Missionaries Who Serve Locally

Thursday, September 6, 2018
Meet two missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints who are serving in the greater Chattanooga area.
 
Elder Tevaga is from West Jordan, Utah.  He is the oldest of three.  He has a younger brother and sister. He has been on his mission for almost 22 months, and only has two months before he will return home, having completed a successful mission.  He said it has been a blessing to meet so many people and share the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
 He said one of the greatest messages he shares is that we will be able to see family members again after this life.  He plans to go back to school when he returns home, play rugby and marry in the temple for time and all eternity.
 
Elder Bisoso is from southern Indiana, from a town called Clarksville, but his family lives in Sellersburg now, which is about 12 minutes away.  He said he is serving a mission because he came to know how much The Lord loves him, and all of us.   He has a sister and a brother and plans to go back to college after his mission.  He would like to go to Brigham Young University or Louisville – and even take a road trip across the country. He wants to get married someday, too, but like all missionaries, is not dating right now.  Right now, he is fully committed to serving The Lord.  He has been on his mission for about two months.  He says what he loves most about serving is sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ and helping people feel the love that Heavenly Father has for them. 
 
Millions of people around the world have had their lives changed by meeting with missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.  “Most missionaries are young people under the age of 25, serving in more than 440 missions throughout the world,” according to the Church.  More than 70,000 full-time missionaries are now serving.  
 
The missionary program of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is based on the New Testament pattern of serving in pairs.  “Missionaries work with a companion of the same gender during their missions, with the exception of couples, who work with their spouse.”  Single men serve for two years.  Single women serve for 18 months.  The term Elder is a priesthood office, and not a reference to age.
