Elijah Pehrson, a member of the Chattanooga Valley Ward of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, has accepted a call to serve as a full-time missionary.

He will be serving in the Guatemala Antigua Mission for two years.

Although Elijah is not fluent in Spanish at this time, he will receive specialized intensive language training to aid him in his service with the Guatemalan people.

“I am happy that there is a missionary program in the Church because it allows me to help and serve, and invite others to come unto Christ,” the soon-to-be Elder Pehrson said when asked about his upcoming experience as a missionary.

“When I got my mission call, I knew that I was going to go somewhere that the Lord needed me. Once I learned I was going to the Guatemala Antigua Mission, I felt instant peace and comfort, and a knowledge that I was going where I am supposed to be.”

Elijah recently graduated as Salutatorian from Heritage High School. Presently, he is employed with Food Lion in Ringgold to save for his mission.Missionaries from the Church of Jesus Christ and/or their families are responsible for paying for their own expenses while serving.

Elijah is the son of Marnie Kuhns and Greg Pehrson.
