The 2nd Best Mission

Dean Call Envelope Dean Mission CallDean served in the Thailand Bangkok mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from July 1980 to July 1982.  I must say this mission is the second best mission in the church 😉  We attended many mission reunions with Dean’s mission president, Clyde T. Lowe.  Even in his old age, when memory was beginning to fade, this mission president attended those reunions.  I believe it was the longest running mission reunion of its era until his death in 2008 at age 92-years.  At these reunions, we would eat Thai food and then just sit and let President Lowe ramble on about missions and life and give counsel.  He was a beloved man and mission president.  This is a picture of all the missionaries during Dean’s time, standing in front of the chapel in Bangkok.  Dean is standing in the second row from the back, fourth missionary from the right.
