The Robertson family received their call much sooner than we did, so it was a little bit of a surprise when we received an email about their calling. However, when I read that email, in that moment, I had such peace. I truly felt that their family will love missionaries like we do!
President Robertson was born into a large Southern family of 9 children. He served his mission in Recife, Brazil and graduated from BYU where he met his wife, Julie. Shortly after they met, they were married in the Los Angeles Temple in California, where Julie was born and raised. He currently works for the Church as an Area Controller in the South America North West Area.
They have 7 children, three of which are married, and are happily awaiting their 5th grandchild due in July. They will be arriving to the mission with their three youngest, Nicole (17), Dallas (15) and Dallin (9), pictured to the left with their mom. Their daughter Casey, who will be joining them later in Argentina, is serving her mission in Kiev Ukraine, Russian speaking. They have lived in various states in the United States, Brazil, Portugal and Guatemala and currently reside in Lima, Peru. They enjoyed being session directors for one of the first EFY programs in Peru and have a great love for the youth and young adults of the Church! We have miles to go before we rest, and we are looking forward to the remaining part of our journey. In the meantime, we now know who will take the baton and carry on the tradition of the best mission in the world here in Argentina Buenos Aires Oeste. Graphic from the Church News today:
