The conference began with Elder Hendersen conducting and making announcements. President Dunn offered wonderful sessions on “Being a Full-Purpose Missionary” and “Integrity and Self Reliance”.
Elder Koyle and Elder Worton conducted a session as the Assistants, entitled, “Teach and Testify”
After a delicious lunch prepared by the senior couples, I facilitated an interactive session on the “30 Second Approach.”  
We had fun practicing effective ways to make initial contacts and share gospel truths that invite people to want to know more.

It was fun to practice the skill of speaking with confidence, while being succinct. These young missionaries are already quite good at this, but everyone can use practice as they create an "elevator speech." 
It is always fun to take candid pictures of our great Elders. They are always up for a picture.

These three have served together as Assistants, but now they serve 5 hours apart. This was a nice time to catch up!

This was a pice of the dancing that happened at lunch. Sister Butler is making a music video of the missionaries and the Modjadji Branch and wanted everyone to participate.
