Elder Cook's Visit to the Mission and June transfers

We will have the privilege of having Elder Quentin L. Cook of the Quorum of the Twelve and Sister Mary Gaddie Cook visit our mission on June 1st.  They will be accompanied by Richard J. Maynes, a member of the Presidency of the Seventy and Jorge F. Zeballos, a member of the First Quorum of the Seventy and their wives and President and Sister Carlos R. Fernández, President and Matron of the Buenos Aries Temple.



We have been given permission to bring all of the missionaries of the Argentina Neuquén Mission to Neuquén to be together for this special event.  We have been reading the entire Book of Mormon together as a mission to prepare ourselves spiritually so that our hearts will be open to the spirit on this special occasion.

After the meeting with Elder Cook all the missionaries will travel to another nearby chapel where we will announce the transfers for the June transfer cycle.  Those missionaries who are assigned to the Trelew, Comodoro and Caleta Olivia areas in this transfer will have the privilege of being the first  missionaries to serve in the Argentina Comodoro Rividarvia Mission to be organized about July first under the direction of President Mark F. Rogers and Sister Gainell Cameron Rogers.

  1. This is so exciting! I didn't realize that soon to be President Rogers is currently serving at the MTC... we'll have to watch for him there!

  2. Wow - what a small LDS world we live in. My wife is Judy Lynn Armstrong Crowder and the Aunt of Sister Brenda Lovell and now we see that someone that Judy served with in Orem, Utah many years ago, Sister Rogers, is going to be serving in the mission next to President and Sister Lovell. I remember Mark Rogers in our ward before they moved to Lindon. It's such a small world we live in.

  3. It is such a small world...especially in the church.
