Mission Leadership Council!!!!

Tuesday, August 23, 2016, we met with our Mission Leadership Council in the Mission Home to receiving training and counsel one with another on those things that will help us be better missionaries and help the work move forward.  Before the training, we always enjoy a great lunch that Sister Beckstrand prepares for us.  Today, homemade enchilladas, homemade salsa, chips, refried beans, watermelon, and Texas sheet cake with ice cream.  Thank you Sister Beckstrand, you are simply wonderful!!!!!!

Our theme for the training was "Missionary Knowledge--Pay It Forward!"
President and Sister Beckstrand taught us how important it is to share our precious knowledge with the new missionaries in order to continue to help the mission as a whole, move upward to greater heights.  Knowledge is one of the attributes of God and He expects us to learn and share with others.  As missionaries, we are His hands here in Sweden and everything we do is reflective of Him.  Our Assistants taught us the practical application of paying our knowledge forward to not only investigators but to our never missionaries, helping them with Missionary skills that will allow them to be successful.

 We had great participation from our MLC members.  They are a wonderful group of young leaders here in the mission.

These seven are all in the same group and will leave us in the first part of December.  We will miss them and their great Leadership skills.  Time to pass the torch and help others grow and become the leaders the Lord needs to move His work forward here in Sweden.  Pictured left to right are:  Elder Halterman, Elder Hart, Elder Richardson, Elder Burke, Elder Carrigan, Elder Bailey, Elder Burton, Sister Beckstrand and President Beckstrand.
