Mission President's Seminary

July 22-25 - Provo MTC

The Provo Missionary Training Center is where we dropped off our three sons at the beginning of their missions.  Now it is our turn.  We joined 170 other couples, Mission Presidents and their companions, who will be serving all around the world.  Our days were filled with instruction and training, and inspiration.

The MTC cafeteria was turned into a Conference Center for the MP Seminar

Every member of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and other Church leaders participated in the five-day conference, addressing the theme "Teach Repentance and Baptize Converts." It was a remarkable experience being taught at the feet of the First Presidency and the Quorum of the Twelve.  

We enjoyed watching the men we sustain as Apostles of Jesus Christ

In his message, President Monson reflected on the time he spent presiding over the Canadian Mission. "We recognize that some of the happiest times of our lives and some of our choicest and most lasting associations came during that three-year period.  I am confident this will be your experience as well," he said.

I am confident this is true as well.

This is where we will serve for the next 3 years.   The Philippines!
