Southwest Mission President Seminar

We had the uplifting experience of attending the Mission President's Seminar in Dallas, Texas this year. It is always a highlight for all of us to be instructed by an Apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ. This year Elder Ballard and Elder Costa of the First Quorum of the Seventy, and their wives, gave us instruction. We were edified in so many ways. The mission presidents in our year of departing are show above; they call it our graduating class. There are actually 3 couples missing. They are incredible men and women whom we love and admire for their service and sacrifice. We were fed, as usual, extremely well, but he biggest feast was from Elder Ballard. He is truly an apostle and a man of God. We received much inspiration and guidance for our own mission. The time ended too quickly and it was time to return back to our missions. What an honor it was to be there with so many wonderful people.
This is Elder Ballard's wife Barbara. What a lovely,sweet and meek woman. The sacrifice these men and their wives make are unbelievable. They are always in the service of their fellowmen.
