Our Vladivostok Russia Mission was able to gather as an Entire Mission for a Mission Conference this week! We believe that this is the first time ever--or at least the first time in a really long time that this has ever been accomplished because of the distance that missionaries from the West need to travel. But with coordination of Visa Trips and coordination of hotels and hostels we were able to retain several missionaries from their Visa trips and put them to work here in Vladivostok prior to this Mission Conference.
Our Sisters met at our home for a Relief Society gathering and had a lovely night together.
Elder Klebingat came from Moscow and although he had not slept for many hours, he was able to teach our Mission Leadership Council on Tuesday.
Then on Wednesday the entire Mission was uplifted and edified from 9:00 am until 5:00 pm. Lessons learned should never be forgotten!
We as a mission recite Our Mission Statement which declares that we talk with everyone! We will increase our efforts in this area and we ask for your support also! Please pray for us and share with us your "talking with everyone" at home stories!
We feel grateful for the opportunity to have a General Authority be here. We are blessed to have the Gospel, to study and ponder the scriptures and be guided by Our Prophet in this, the Latter Days! We are grateful for your daughter.
