Looking for past missionaries! 12 Dec 2003
I am looking for two Elders and one Sister that I went into the mission field with in Vancouver. They were Jason Saunders, Kirk Ginn, and Tonya Behunin and would have served between 1994 and 1996. I would very much like to reunite with any/all of them as they were really good friends of mine. I had to go home early because of illness and haven't had any contact with them since I had to leave in 1994. Please if anyone could help I would be very greatful. Also they served under President Kapp if that helps anyone.

Hi Everyone!

The Canada Vancouver Mission Alumni site now has a new look. Thanks to LDS Mission Network for hosting our site!

The new site contains many new features! Seperate and secure directories for Alumni, Friends & Members, and Currently Serving Missionaries. There's also chat, messages, news, pictures, stories, reunions, polls, weather, and much more.

As the need for security over the internet increases, our advanced site implements many new features that protect registered users from SPAM and the harvesting of your personal information. (EMail addresses are always hidden) Within your personal profile, you also now have personal security and site notification options which enable you to customize who has access to your information, and what site notifications you wish to receive.

I apologize for the inconvenience, however, as the old site RM directory was getting out of date, and as a means to audit out old or inaccurate information, rather than migrating your currently listed information to the new database, I am inviting you to re-register with the new site. You will be able to select a username and password which will allow you to edit/update your personal information at anytime.

The web address remains unchanged at:

Your help in filling in any missing information would be greatly appreciated. Also, any other contributions such as mission histories, pictures and stories would be wonderful to receive. I welcome any questions or comments!

A young man I baptized while serving in Norway served in the Vancouver British Columbia mission 5-7 years
ago. His name was Pedram Soleimanzadeh, but I believe he changed his last name to be Solomonsen prior to
serving his mission. I've not spoken with him in several years and I can't find his contact information

I could not find his name on this site, but wondered if you had any ideas of how I might be able to find
his contact info.

Any help you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, my name is Jena, and I'm searching for a friend of mine, Elder John Wah
Lee, whom I believe is serving or has recently served in the Vancouver mission. I'm not certain what his release date is/was and I haven't heard
from him in a very long time. We lost contact several months ago due to me temporarily losing his last letter. The last address for him that I have is
in Point Roberts, WA. Since our last contact my email address that I used before he left went inactive and was deleted and I went through a few dead
computers, taking his addresses (home, mission, and email) and all other contact information with them. If anyone knows how to contact him, please
email me at, or have him do so. I would be very
appreciative. Thank you.

Hello....My name is DONNA (BROCK) RICHARDS. I was baptized April 10, 1965 (age 18) in Vancouver by Elder Richard Hemrick and Fred Rhoades, whom I have lost
contact. I remember being shy about getting baptized because I only had one leg. Elder Rowe and Elder Peterson (both from Idaho)
tracked me out in 1964 and I want them to know, as well as the other missionaries, that I still have a
burning testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ.....I have been blessed immensely these past 36 years. I am eternally grateful for all those angels
(missionaries and members) who taught me the gospel.

In 1969 I attended Ricks College and then BYU to obtain a B.S. degree in Speech Pathology and Audiology. I have served and been a faithful member of the church
since baptism. In 1986 I was married in the Seattle Temple (first and only marriage). Life does begin at 40!!!! Through my step children, I am a
grandma of three.

I would love to hear from missionaries and members from 1965 and up who might remember me. My passion (other than my husband) is Family History! I have
been heavily involved since 1971...not only for myself but in serving others.

I am currently Ward and Stake Family History Consultant. I learned sign language in 1971 and continue today interpreting for the deaf.

I pray Heavenly Father's blessings on all you former missionaries, who served so faithfully in this part of the Lord's vineyard, Canada.


Hello, we are the Pierson family and we lived in the Coquitlam ward from

We also rub shoulders each week in the Cardston temple with the Kapps as they are the new temple presidents.

October 15th,

My name is Ron Miller. We lived out in the Colwood/Glen Lake area in an
apartment building across from the King John Inn on Sooke Rd. My folks and I are members.

I love the web site. I came across it in a search for the missionary
who taught me the gospel. I live in Lethbridge now and a month or so ago we had a Stake
Leadership meeting with Elder Blair Bennett. He challenged us to try to contact the
individual who taught us the gospel.

My missionary was Elder Mark Lamont Robison, a fiery little guy about
5'6", solid as a rock. He had one big eyebrow and a smile the size of the Alberta
sky. He would have served probably from 1972 - 1974ish, President Killpack was mission
president at the time I think. He was from Salt Lake. He was driving truck before he came
on his mission and he was a self confessed "red-neck" of the first order. I'd
like to get in touch with the little "Tasmanian Devil" and tell him how much I
love and appreciate all he did for me. Do you have any suggestions?

My name is Sherry Bonneau nee Simister. I am looking for two former Elders who

They baptized our family September 13 1969. I would very much like to get in contact with

My father is in active and recently started attending again with his new wife who is not
of our faith. the reason he comes is that she wants him to attend her church and that
being the case he told her that she had to attend with him to his. So they alternate
Sunday's at each other's church.

My father Allan Simister was recently asking about Elder Mortensen and Elder Miller. It
would be so nice if I could find them and they write my father a letter or note. I'm
hoping to have contacted them before christmas. That way I could surprise my father.

Thank you so much for providing this site. God Bless you Sherry Bonneau nee Simister

Hi! My name is Melanie Farmer, I used to live out on Vancouver Island a few years
ago. I was searching the Mision page, the alumni part, trying to locate 2 former
missionaries that served in Victoria, but there names were not listed. One is Elder Egan,
and the other is Elder Richards. They were serving in Victoria during the summer of 1998.
They served in the Young Single Adult branch. My friend and I moved away in September of
1998 and they were both still serving there. I believe they are both home now, Egan for
around 6 months maybe, and I am not sure about Richards. Elder Egan is from Utah and
Richards may have been also, but it seems to have escaped me!! Any information you can
pass on to me would be greatly appreciated!

I am looking for two Elders who served in the Canada Vancouver mission. They are not
listed on the Alumni page.

The Elders I am seeking were serving in the New Westminster Ward in 1973. Elder Steve
Dubois was fairly new, I think and Elder David Funk was about to go home. As far as I can
recall, Elder Dubois was from Bountiful, Utah and Elder Funk was from Sacramento,

was leaving with her new husband to live in Vancouver. Unfortunately, I lost her address
and can not remember her new last name. She is the former Debbie Leonard and I would
really love it if someone who knows her would give her this message, I really miss her and
would like to just talk to her.

Thank you,

Members and friends of the BC area. I was a missionary out there 84-86. I'd love to find
out where the French Family is that my companion and I Nate Ferguson tracked out and they
were eventually baptized. I'd also like to find out where Karmen Chalus is from Kamloops,
I know she went on a mission and I lost touch with her. While I am searching I'd love to
hear how the Duerichen's are doing up in Smithers and how that branch is doing - I had
wonderful time up there. Hope to here from someone soon...

Looking for Eileen Cruikshank and sisters


I baptized four sisters in Quesnel, B.C, and have lost track of them. I know they did
quite well with their testimonies after their conversion, and married members, stayed

This is to announce my engagement to Fiona Kwai-Fung Yiu. We will be
married in the Salt Lake temple on October 11, 1997. We both served in the mission and
were released in January 1997 after doing the best we could to bring the gospel to the
awesome people we came in contact with in Canada.

If any of you have friends from the mission that you are still in contact with, please let
them know of this web page. If we can all contribute, it will be a great resource to stay
in touch with the people we served with, as well as the mission's history and current

until I arrive but get ready, I come with all the energy of heart and spirit I can
possibly muster. I look forward with great anticipation to my months of service and
growth. I enter the MTC on Sept. 10th. I can't wait to be junior companion/greeney and
share this glorious gospel. 'Til I join you in the field and for forever; My God's loving
hand guide our lives and soften our hearts.

A Humble Servant,

Elder Lisonbee
