How could we be so lucky to get to be at Gadfield Elm twice this week, first with our district of missionaries at a preparation day tour and barbecue, and second yesterday with the Senior missionaries throughout our mission and our Mission Presidency and spouses!
What a sweet, rare opportunity to be with our fellow senior missionary couples for a few hours yesterday. Several drove over two hours to come! We met first at Gadfield Elm and enjoyed a conference together, Bernard and Val’s presentation, President Gardiner’s talk, President and Sister Leppard’s counsel.
Off to lunch at a nearby restaurant!
A short drive to the Hill Farm, with Benbow’s Pond where Wilford Woodruff baptized many, including my ancestor Thomas Jenkins.
Last stop to Castle Frome Church to warm up inside and have a short presentation about Thomas Jenkins to a sweet attentive encouraging group!
What wonderful historic places! So fun to share the spirit of them with these two great groups of missionaries, young and a little less-young! Cheerio!
