Micronesia Guam Senior Missionaries Take to the Road

Senior missionaries of the Micronesia Guam mission take a turn at cleanup

The senior missionaries are all over it. Trash doesn’t have a chance! Early risers and hard workers they are certainly up for the task.

This group consists of senior missionaries assigned to the Micronesia Guam mission, the mission president and wife as well as missionaries who will eventually transition to Japan.

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints' is responsible for cleaning up a section of road that their Barrigada chapel is on.

Gathering to acquire the Church Helping Hands supplies, a moment is taken to give notice to the Church’s amazing Micronesia Guam mission president and his companion. Since they are always giving the Church’s missionaries awards, the tables were turned today as the Church missionaries awarded them with “The Watchful Eye” award for keeping such a good eye on them all.

Donned in bright yellow vests, these missionaries are sure to be seen. Cotton gloves help to protect their hands from all kinds of gnarly trash that is secured into their large, black trash bags.

Near the end of the day the mayor’s department comes to collect the accumulated collection of rubbish. A short video, below, gives a glimpse of support from drivers as they honk or wave as they pass the cleaning crew. This cleanup party is nothing but a fun time as they help with the islands G3 initiative.

Trash and awards. Missionary life just doesn’t get better than this.
