Sister Beckstrand reminded the Elders to be careful when purchasing slacks, that they aren't too tight and that they have a permanent crease in them. Don't be like Will Ferrill when he sings, "I got my tight pants on."
Our Assistants, Elder Halterman and Elder Bradshaw, provided training on "Love in Obedience" and of the importance of "Becoming a Consecrated Missionary."
Our first training was with the Stockholm Zone in Gubbängen. After the training, lunch was served.......pick out your missionary.
After lunch, Sister Beckstrand provided Family Home Evening activities for our missionaries. Here, the missionaries participated in tossing a ball of yarn around the circle and relating a special something about the person they tossed the ball of yarn to.
At the end of the activity, President Beckstrand explained how we are all connected to each other and that we are a special family, the Sweden Stockholm Mission Family, and we will always be connected, throughout this life and into eternity.
