Pine River's Sonenstahl to serve church mission in California


Just before hunting season, Derek Sonenstahl, of Pine River, is setting aside one of his favorite sports to serve a full-time, two-year mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in San Jose, Calif. He reported for his mission Wednesday, Oct. 16.

“I’m a big hunter and fisherman,” said Sonenstahl, 19. “It is going to be hard to leave that behind, but it’s important for me to do this.”
