Conference Weekend and MLC

April 4, 2015, Conference weekend, with the added blessing of Easter Sunday, at the mission home with our office elders and Sister missionaries from Täby.  A special treat as we also had an investigator and a new convert come to enjoy dinner and conference with us.

 Dinner before conference with some of the crew.  Sister Harkness, Elder Taggart, Elder Noso, Sister Beckstrom, Daniel (investigating the church, and Mikael, from the Täby ward.

And, for this Easter, a special group who are ready to rescue all souls.  Give heed to their message and "Come Unto the Savior."     Elder Brown, Elder Noso, Elder Sahlin, and Elder Taggart, our faithful office crew.

On Tuesday, April 7, 2015, we had our Mission Leadership Council meeting at the mission home.  This is always a great moment for President and Sister Beckstrand to be able to greet and spend time with our great missionary leaders here in the mission.  Our theme for this meeting was taken from Preach My Gospel, Chapter 2, "How Do I Study Effectively and Prepare to Teach?"

 The MLC members listen carefully and soak in all the teaching provided.  Now their task will be to train their Zone members on the principles received in the council meeting.

 Elder Noso and Elder Sahlin provided some excellent insight and teaching for our council.  They taught us the importance of companionship study and why the Lord has asked us as missionaries to prepare ourselves using this study time. 

Elder Noso and Elder Sahlin providing a special "role play" of what not to do in companionship study in the morning.

 We need to come prepared, ready for God to teach us the things we need that day to help those we are teaching.

As the MLC members get ready to depart after meeting, some thought they needed some extra food to get them home.  Here we have Elder Stinnett, Sister and President Beckstrand, Elder Sahlin, Elder Barnes, Elder Floyd, Elder Ward, Elder Taggart, Elder Noso, Elder Schindler, and Elder Rasmussen.
