Hermana Samuelson's District came to the hospital to cheer her up! 

President Deere's brother Jason (left) performed in Boise Idaho where he met one of our soon-to-be missionaries, Hermana Knowles.  I think this is a new record for the earliest appearance on the blog of a new missionary!  Congrats Sister Knowles and we'll see you soon!

 We began this round of Zone Conferences in Sevilla with the Sevilla 1, Sevilla 2 and San Fernando Zones.  We talked about "Dos Veces en Blanco", or two times in white.  We talked about baptism and about helping new members all the way to the temple one year later.  Here are these three zones at lunchtime:

The Caceres District mining on a preparation day.

Elders Chapple, Church and Ward.  If only we had an Elder Bishop.

Elder Enfield with his cool new tie.

I was telling these sisters about Elders Ward, Church and Chappel, and they said they get jokes a lot too:  Hermanas Meneses and Israelsen. 

A fun surprise from Segovia:  These former missionaries in our mission met together for training to be counselors at the upcoming FSY, or For the Strength of Youth (EFY) here in Spain. 

This from Elder Guarcax.  Start them young!

Hermanas Clark and Muse in Granada.
