For LDS faithful in Cache Valley, these are momentous times as the Utah Logan LDS Mission begins a new chapter in area church history. The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints announced in January the formation of the Utah Logan Mission. Logan was formerly in the Ogden mission.
Richard Gordon, the first counselor in the outgoing Utah Ogden Mission presidency, commented on the change.
“It’s amazing and historic to have our own mission in Logan,” said Gordon, who is retired from teaching at the Logan LDS institute. “I think it is exciting. There will be 59 stakes in each mission. The goal is to have a set of missionaries for each stake.”
