Preparing for a Mission to Tokyo, Japan South Mission
Jenesse got her mission call the end of November and entered the Missionary Training Center on April 16, 2014. That gave her 4 1/2 months to prepare and prepare she did. She went to missionary training class at the local institute every week and attended a temple at least once a week. She made a goal to attend as many different temples as she could before leaving. I believe she made it to 8 different temples....thanks Maggie Bromley for joining her on the Idaho road trip. Then for service, she was taking pictures of fellow missionaries all around the valley for free. Trips to Ogden, Provo, Idaho and SLC were constant then sitting in front of her computer for hours editing....did I say she is an amazing young lady! She definitely had the spiritual part covered, now getting her shopping was another matter...lol. I would stand outside her room and sing, "Do You Want To Go Shopping" from the movie Frozen "Do You Want To Build A Snowman." it was hard work getting her out shopping, but she did manage to buy what was on the list. Her suitcase was packed the morning she left...Thank you Maggie Bromley and Rachel Shearer for coming Wednesday morning and rolling clothing. Her suitcases were overweight so as it turns out more than enough shopping was accomplished.
