On Sunday, October 10, 2010 Brianne received the greatest present she could think of for her 21st birthday. A group of worthy Priesthood holders surrounded her and placed their hands on her head to set her apart as a full time missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
(former) Bishop David Neilson, (former) President Matthew Hawkins, Brother Tracy Walker, President Anthony Marshall, Father/Bishop Stuart Burnham, (former) President Rand Tolboe
These very kind and wise men and their wives took time before the setting apart to give Brianne some very wise counsel. The kind of wisdom one can only receive from having served willingly and unselfishly in any capacity the Lord needed them. Brianne has been blessed to grow up under the tutelage of these leaders. The Spirit was strong as President Marshall set her apart and gave her a blessing to go forth and love the people of Michigan and teach them of the true gospel of Jesus Christ. For the next 18 months she will do just that being known only as Sister Burnham.
