March 2014 Baptism Challenge

Memo to Elder Pearson regarding March 2014 Baptismal Challenge

So maybe you’ll find this pretty interesting. This is a copy of the memo and email responses with President Klingler to Elder Pearson, Elder Hamula, and President Layton (the new mission president coming in June). It explains a lot about the mission process of achieving goals in the first quarter of this year. Pretty cool stuff!


Au lomani kemuni! Moce mada 🙂

Elders and Sisters,


For your information, we provided the attached report to Elder Pearson.   We copied Elder Hamula and President Layton.  Here are the responses received from each one:




We are simply thrilled for you and Sister Klingler and your marvelous missionaries!  This is a tender mercy for your individual and collective exercise of faith, obedience and diligence.  I am sure this is month never to be forgotten.

Thank you for your wonderful leadership!

With Love

Elder and Sister Pearson


President, this is absolutely outstanding.  What an inspiring report!  I am so pleased for you and your missionaries.


Best regards,

Elder James Hamula


President Klingler,


I can’t remember an email as exciting to read as yours outlining the Fiji Suva Mission accomplishments in March. Congratulations to you and all of the wonderful missionaries for assisting 122 of our brothers and sisters to enter the waters of baptism. I can only imagine the feeling of excitement within the mission for accomplishing this record setting event.


Sister Layton and I were already thrilled to return to the islands to serve as missionaries. We are even more excited now that we have a feel for the caliber of missionaries we will be serving with. Obviously the missionaries know how to work hard and engage the spirit of the Lord in accomplishing the challenge they were given.


I was impressed with the process that you and the Mission Leadership Council went through to identify monthly objectives to lead up to your success. As each month and week passed the focus was on the end result and the Lord sustained your efforts.


May the Lord continue to bless you and your missionaries. We feel so fortunate to inherit such a well-trained and solid missionary force.


With personal regards,

President Layton
