LDS Sister Missionaries Profiled in Northern California

EUREKA, CALIFORNIA -- Two LDS sister missionaries were interviewed for Saturday's Eureka Times-Standard, telling the newspaper about their work and their backgrounds. Interviewed were Sister Turaan Bayartsetseg from Ulaanbaator, Mongolia and her companion Sister Liberty Stradinger from Roosevelt, Utah.

"Sister B," as the local church members call her, still struggles a bit with English, and carries a Mongolian-English dictionary with her for assistance. She studied English for two months before the normal month-long course of study at the Provo Missionary Training Center.

Both sisters are pleased to be serving in Eureka. Sister Bayartsetseg likes the weather, which is much warmer than Mongolia. "It's not as cold as back home, and the redwoods are wonderful. We don't have many trees in the city where I live." She also likes the food in the US, "I surely enjoy pizza." Sister Stradinger adds that the people are "friendly to both of us, and receptive to the message of Jesus Christ...There's a deep sense of religious duty here, and there's no place else I'd rather be."

Following her mission, Sister Bayartsetseg plans to return to her studies at Mongolian Technical University for a master's degree in Chemical Engineering. Sister Stradinger will go back to Weber State University in Ogden, Utah where she was studying criminal justice.
