December 2014 Mission Tour
Elder Carl B. Cook and his wife, Lynette came to our mission and traveled zone by zone as our special guests. Elder Cook is a general authority assigned as the area president of the SE Africa area. He and Sister Cook served as mission president and companion in New Zealand and then were called 2 years after returning home to be a member of the seventy.
The purpose of the mission tour is to lift, inspire and encourage. They certainly are doing that. We have all been taught and edified and encouraged to now "go and do."
Following are pictures from each zone, with some fun lunch pictures of everyone. These conferences are a great time to be together.
We were all so edified by being with Elder and Sister Cook all week. The memory of this week will last throughout our entire mission. We learned about their calling, their mission president experience and all they are learning in this SE Africa area. They reminded us that the Johannesburg is the flagship mission in Africa, due to the fact that we have a temple, 7 stakes, the most members and the most missionaries. We were reminded that where much is given, much is expected.
