Latter-day Saint missions include both meeting and working with new and sometimes challenging personalities, but for two elders in the Marshall Islands Mission, one companionship feels familiar.
Twin brothers from Fiji, Elder Joshua Whippy and Elder Jared Whippy, are serving as missionary companions on the island of Kiribati.
“We love being companions,” Elder Joshua Whippy said in an interview with the LDS Newsroom staff. “In many ways it makes things easier because we already know what the other is thinking and what he is going to say. It also makes decision-making easier.”
The Whippy twins both played rugby together and attended BYU. They received their mission calls one month apart from each other, and they had hoped to serve as mission companions.
