Wednesday, April 27, 2016, the Sister Missionaries from the Sweden Stockholm Mission gathered at the Västerhaninge Chapel for their annual Spring Training. Sister Beckstrand welcomed the Sisters to this special day and expressed the love of President and Sister Beckstrand for all of our fantastic Sister missionaries serving the Lord here in Sweden.
The theme for the Special Training was, "Standing Steadfast in Christ" with a spin on Dr. Suess' wonderful stories. President Beckstrand also added his welcome and love for the sisters and shared with them a special story, about Sister Lurch and the Mormon Church, adapted from the book, "Green Eggs and Ham!"
Some stand small, some stand tall.......How will you stand?
Sister Watson held a special class for the sisters on "Standing Steadfast in Christ through the Scriptures."
Sister Clouse taught the sisters to "Stand Steadfast in Christ through the Choices We Make."
After the special instruction in the morning by Sister Watson and Sister Clouse, it was time for lunch. The cultural hall was wonderfully decorated and waiting for the sisters.
The POEs, Elder Kendall and Elder Payne, were eagerly awaiting their opportunity to have a little lunch.
While Thing 2, Sister Koyle, stood ready to welcome the hungry sisters to lunch.

Hey, where did these Elders come from?????? Elder Hart came to play for a special Sister song. Here he is with his companion Elder Murri, and the POEs, Elder Kendall and Elder Payne.
A tremendous "Thank You" to our senior couples who helped us with the Specialized Sister Training event. Elder and Sister Clouse, Elder and Sister Watson, Elder and Sister Wood, and Elder and Sister Koyle. We love our Senior Couples.........
After lunch, we gathered in the chapel and started with a wonderful song by Sister Andserson and Sister Stoughton, "In Christ Alone." Elder Hart accompanied the sisters on the piano.
Sister Beckstrand then taught the sisters how to "Stand Steadfast in Christ through a Valiant Testimony."
After Sister Beckstrand's teaching, the sisters gathered in the cultural hall for a fun activity. See all the crazy socks.....only for P-Days, not for work days.........
Sister Beckstrand then proceeded to teach the Sister missionaries a few "dance moves" to help them enjoy life.
What say ye to a little "Cotton Eyed Joe" dance moves from the sisters........
Sister Koyle introduced the sisters to the Pop The Balloon game, and they loved playing it....
After the games, a great treat table was enjoyed by the sisters.
