Mission Leadership Council

Mission Leadership Council!!!!
On Tuesday, May 31, 2016, the members of the Mission Leadership Council met at the Västerhaninge Chapel for our training for this transfer.  The theme for the training was "Twice in White" as we focused on remembering that our responsibility as missionaries doesn't end with the baptism of our investigators.  We need to be able to see our investigator friends "Twice in White" as we help them to be able to attend the temple, doing baptisms for their deceased family members and after one year, going through for their own temple endowment.  Our Assistants taught the Council members about the importance of reteaching the lessons after baptism and setting up a temple visit calendar for these new converts.

After being in the Chapel, we took the Council members outside to sit in view of the Stockholm Temple.  Sister Beckstrand taught the members the importance of the endowment, being Endowed with Power.  It was a great MLC and the Lord blessed us with a beautiful day.

After a Picnic sack lunch, we strolled on down to the Viking Burial Grounds, receiving the reminder that the Sweden Stockholm Temple is truly built upon sacred ground, hallowed by the ancient Vikings as a very special place.

Our Swedish Arrival!!!!
On Wednesday, June 1, 2016, we traveled to the airport to pick up Äldste Åström, who has been serving in the Arizona Gilbert Mission.  Elder Åström has been reassigned to the Sweden Stockholm Mission until he receives his medical release for a several hip problem.  We welcomed him home to Sweden and he will serve in the Mission Office until his release is processed.  Pictured left to right are:  President and Sister Beckstrand, Sister and Elder Koyle, Elder Åström, Elder Payne, Elder Adcox, and Elder and Sister Clouse.
