A Mission President and his Wife are called to preside over a specific mission for the period of three years. They are responsible for each missionary as well as the teaching of the gospel in that specific mission.
As you can see from this picture of President and Sister Fry, they are not necessarily elderly, retired couples. Often entire families, children and all, pick up and move to a new location for this three year time frame. It is a huge sacrifice and commitment on their part and we appreciate their willingness of the Fry's to serve the Ukrananian people as well as our missionary.

Dear Brother and Sister Russell,
We are happy to have your son serving with us in the mission. We just finished a Zone Conference in Kharkov where we saw him and his companion. They are doing very well. We have attached a picture of him with us. If you should ever need to get in touch with us, you can email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org and please check out our blog at: www.timandjeanniefry.blogspot.com . Thank you for sharing your son with us at this time.
