Seminar for Mission President

 Every six months we get to attend a Seminar for Mission Presidents and their spouses in the North America Southwest area.  There were 21 Mission Presidents, Elder Neil L Anderson, Elder Tad Callister, Elder Foster, Elder Teh and their spouses.  It was a time of training, learning, inspiring and just plain fun! First we all attended the San Antonio Temple together.

When we arrived they had a lunch waiting for us along with a really cute gift bag full of mementos

With Friday night being date night, it was spent touring The Alamo....

We then got to take a tour on the riverboat

Saturday and Sunday was spent learning and receiving counsel and instruction.  It was an amazing experience.  The wives even had their own session with Elder Anderson, where we received great counsel and love.  Needless to say, we took lots of notes and have a lot of information to share with our missionaries! Speaking of which, we thought for sure we would not be able to concentrate, much less enjoy ourselves, being away for 4 days from our kids and all of our missionaries.  So we were surprised at just how relaxed we felt!  (not sure if that's good or bad??) We were happy to come back and find all was well.
