On November 13, 2014, Sister Beckstrand held her first Sister Conference with the Sister missionaries in the Sweden Stockholm Mission.  The conference was held in Gubbängen and we had all 38 Sister missionaries attend.  A wonderful day was had by all.  It was fun, spiritual, and much needed to recharge the batteries of these wonderful Sister missionaries.  Special thanks to Sister Taylor, Sister Coombs, Sister Taylor, and Sister Beckstrand for a wonderful conference.

 Well, today, November 19, 2014, we picked up a brand new Elder at the airport.  Elder Svensson is joining us and he is from Örebro, Sweden and will be serving with Elder Williams.
