In the Beginning

The Time is quickly approaching!!!!

We received our call to the Micronesia Guam Mission last October and have been preparing since that time.  It has been a long wait, but there has been much to accomplish!!  We had to make sure we were "physically" capable, had to get a number of shots, get numerous documents ready for visas, etc. and now the waiting is nearly over and we are excited!!  

In early March, we received a phone call from our Mission President, President Mecham, telling us that he is assigning us to the Island State of Chuuk in the Federated States of Micronesia.  We had been communicating with a couple, Elder and Sister Tiffany, and they gave us some great insight into the mission and Chuuk. 

There has been so much activity in the ward with so many missionaries coming home and new ones leaving that our "farewell" was in mid March, but now we are about to embark upon a great adventure in the service of our Father in Heaven.  We will spend 10 days at the MTC in Provo and then it is off to Chuuk!

We will update you again while we are in the MTC!

  1. Elder and Sister Crisp,

    I am Sister Melissa Peck from Coos Bay, OR we are SO tickled to get to know you and follow your adventures in MGM on Chuuk! (Sister Tiffany sent me your info :)

    Our son Elder Carter Peck will be one of your Elders there, serving on Uman. He has been serving there since he arrived in October 2012.

    Thank you so much for giving of your time and talents by serving a mission. You are prayed for and loved by all the moms (and parents)of the Elders you are there serving with. I wish that thank you conveyed all we would say.

    GOOD and safe travel! (take some tea tree and peppermint essential oil if you have not snagged some already, it is good for A MILLION things on the islands! LOL)We will look for your arrival on the mission facebook page!:)
