Trying to find Elder Mortenson 13 Jan 2016
My name is Doug Hoiland. I am trying to find the missionaries that taught me the discussions in the spring of 1972 in the Santa Clara/Junction City/Corvallis area in Oregon. I had a baptism date set and my father chased these elders off with a shotgun. I felt so bad, but to keep peace, I backed away from the baptism. I was attending Oregon State University in Air Force ROTC and the elders tried to find me but I hid from them. I cannot remember their names, but I was baptized 3 years later in 1975. I never got to thank these persistent elders back in 1972. I have been a member for almost 41 years now, and have always wanted to find those elders from 1972 who went home from their mission thinking that they had failed with me. If you are one of them or if you know who served in the Santa Clara/Junction City/Corvallis area in Oregon in the spring and fall of 1972, please reply to

Coos Bay in 1980 07 Oct 2007

I am trying to find the missionaries who taught my husband and I back in 1980 in Coos Bay, Oregon. Back then I was 21 and my husband 23 and we had no children at that time. Today we have 4 sons who all served missions and attended (or still attend) BYU. My husband is a High Councilman in the stake and we are the Stake YSA Advisors. I just want them to know that we are active and grateful for their service!

How can I contact these good Elders?

Thank you,

Kathy Barber

Correction to previous message 27 Nov 2006
It was not Elder Sorenson who taught my parents the gospel, but Elder Mortenson, who served in Sweet Home, Oregon during late Spring, early Summer 1963 with Elder Joseph Olschewski (correction to spelling of name). Sorry bout the confusion.

Brother Waite, OPM Taxi News 13 Oct 2006
Who doesn't love our OPM Taxi? I'm not sure many people know of his current condition, but I thought many would like to know. Recently, BW was diagnosed with colon cancer, and they think it has spread further. I'm certain a call from his missionaries would make his day. His OPM Taxi Hotline still goes to him- 888.747.7877. Our prayers are with him...
