Joyce and I joined eleven other mission presidents and their wives from Oct 14-17 in Palmyra, NY for a Mission Presidents Seminar. Our trainers were Elder David A. Bednar (and his wife) from the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles and Elder Jay E. Jensen (and his wife) from the presidency of the Seventy.
This small gathering provided a unique and special opportunity to be spiritually uplifted, educated and motivated. I received a number of new ideas that will strengthen and improve our mission.
In addition to the formal training, we were also able to attend a temple session at the Palmyra Temple and to visit the Hill Cumorah, the Sacred Grove, the Smith Farm and the EB Grandin Print Shop (location of where the first edition of the Book of Mormon was printed).
