How One Couple Went from Working for the CIA to Serving a Mission for the Church

They were world-traveling career CIA administrative employees who had lived in Ecuador, Macedonia, Argentina, China, England, Mexico and Australia. Before their marriage, she served in the Toronto Canada Mission and he in the Costa Rica/Panama Mission.

So when Sister Diane Sellers and Elder Kory Sellers turned in their mission papers in 2017, they were fairly certain of a humanitarian assignment in some far-flung corner of the globe. The Lord, however, had other plans for them.

The Sellers were called to a Member and Leader Support mission on the near northeast side of Houston, Texas. What they didn’t realize at the time was that their mission was a unique gathering place of people from all over the world. As it turned out, they didn’t have to go to faraway places to serve those people; those people came to them.
