This last Wednesday we had a wonderful conference for our whole England Birmingham Mission at the Harbourne chapel in Birmingham. It was pretty exciting to gather the whole mission–our first such occasion! Our speakers were Elder Dykes of the Europe Area Presidency and Elder Allen, the Managing Director of the Missionary Department of the Church, in addition to our Mission President Rasmussen and his wife Julie Rasmussen. The conference was focused on preparing our missionaries to use a new tool–the IPad! We received materials and training and the actual IPads will come later as missionaries pass off certain steps. It’s exciting to see the possibilities of teaching, communicating, and enhancing the work with investigators. As the group was getting ready for a huge group photo, I took these first three shots to get a little feeling of the occasion!
The rest of the photos are shots we’ve taken in the last few months. You can’t help but notice how happy these missionaries are–full of life, dedication, faith and testimony. It’s a privilege to be with them!
