Missionaries in Bakersfield
February 6, 2006 — Church in the News
BAKERSFIELD, California — When Elder Deardeuff got his letter from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints telling him he was going to come to the California Ventura Mission, he said, "Where is Bakersfield, California?" Deardeuff's companion, Elder Wright, uttered the same response. Both come from very different backgrounds, yet their shared beliefs have helped them work together with a common energy and goal.
